Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Visa

This route is for exceptionally talented individuals in the fields of science, humanities, engineering and the arts, who wish to work in the UK. These individuals are those who are already internationally recognised at the highest level as world leaders in their particular field, or who have already demonstrated exceptional promise and are likely to become world leaders in their particular area.

You must read the Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) policy guidance on the Home Office website. The policy guidance is based on Part 6A of the Immigration Rules.
