Benefits - High Potential Individual Visa UK

1. Attracts Top Graduates - The new visa will enable the UK to attract the most sought-after graduates while also enhancing the UK's skill base. However, unnamed sources warn that the new route could risk undermining the graduate route, which requires talented students to study in UK universities before gaining access to work.

2. Work in the UK - Participants under the new scheme will be able to work in any job in the UK without the need for sponsorship and without graduating from a UK university, but must meet a £1,270 GBP financial requirement to cover living costs in addition to English language requirements.

3. Switch Visas and Apply for UK Settlement - Applicants will also have the option to switch to other routes, which could lead to settlement in the UK. It is unclear how many graduates the route will attract, but the government said the number is unlimited.

4. Government Application Fees - Government Fees for the High Potential visa will be £715 GBP for both the main applicant and dependants.
