UK Launches a new visa scheme: High Potential Individual Visa


A High Potential Individual (HPI) visa allows you to stay in the UK for at least 2 years. To apply for this visa, you should have been awarded an academic qualification by an eligible university in the past 5 years. Hence, the High Potential Individual Visa is only available to new graduates of top global universities who intend to work or search for jobs, in the UK.  No job offer is needed to work in the UK or we can say that this is an unsponsored visa route to the UK. The High Potential Individual route opened on 30 May 2022.
