The UK Border Agency has announced that from this month applicants under Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) of the points-based system must follow a new procedure if they want Arts Council England (ACE) to endorse their application.

If you are seeking ACE endorsement, you must now complete ACE’s new competent body application form and submit it with your visa application. You must also submit supporting documents which show that you meet ACE’s eligibility criteria. You can download the form and the criteria from the Exceptional talent – request for endorsement page of the UK Border Agency website.

Until now, applicants seeking ACE endorsement needed to submit the supporting documents but did not need to submit the form.

There is no change to the procedure for Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) applicants who want their application to be endorsed by the Royal Society, the British Academy or the Royal Academy of Engineering. As before, they must submit a completed ‘science bodies’ competent body application form and documents showing that they meet their competent body’s eligibility criteria. See the Exceptional talent – request for endorsement page for more information. Source: UK Border Agency.
