If you are in the UK or will shortly be in the UK and are thinking of obtaining a highly skilled migrant Tier 1 visa to extend your stay, it is important for you to start preparing your application as soon as possible.
Starting in April of 2011 the Tier 1 (General) immigration category will in effect end. This is a highly popular points based immigration route which does not require a job offer from a UK employer. Instead, the UK Government will replace it with an extremely difficult to obtain 'exceptional talent' visa.
Once this change is enacted, it will be very difficult to be granted leave to remain in the UK on the basis of your skills and experience without a job offer from a British employer.
