Plans have already been submitted to Theresa May’s office, which would allow 100 “exceptional talent” visas to be granted each year.

It has been reported in the London Evening Standard that plans have already been submitted to Theresa May’s office, which would allow 100 “exceptional talent” visas to be granted each year. The home office already issues 1,000 such visas annually for world class artists, scientists and performers; however, the major is hopeful that the extra visas can assist hi-tech start-ups and fashion houses in particular as these are often said to struggle with Britain’s costly and bureaucratic visa system. Johnson’s deputy mayor for business Kit Malthouse believes that 100 visas was a low starting point but suggested that there was room for growth.

Interdean is renowned for offering its comprehensive overseas moving services for over 50 years. Regularly assisting customers with queries regarding visa application, the team were keen to reflect on what this could mean for potential immigrants.

“The Mayor has regularly maintained the view that it is crucial to London’s economy to encourage foreign business. We look forward to keeping a close eye on this story to see whether this idea gets accepted. Applying for a visa to a new country can be a daunting prospect which is why at Interdean we encourage our customers to take advantage of our free immigration and visa application help.”
