Choose between different referees

Readers ask many questions about Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa

Sometimes you can be so lucky that you need to choose referees for Exceptional Talent Visa from a list. Probably, you have a good network. As a result, you need just to pick the names. And these people are ready to support you.

These people are called referees. They can give you a Letter of Recommendation. Or just a supporting letter as one of the 10 required documents.

For other people, this process is not so smooth. Let’s consider a real case when a person needs to choose three C-level managers to ask about the letter. I got this question a couple days ago.

  1. Does the company need to be one big tech companies, for tech talent scenario, or a CEO from a promising start-up is also acceptable?

    1. Hi Ashraf,
      Thank you for your question.
      As usual, we don’t have only one answer to this question.
      Big tech companies are widely appreciated. But CEO of a promising start-up may be a relevant person as well. Depending on the scale of startup’s activity, the status, investment activities and other reputational and financial factors.
      Also, it is important to mention that the question is relevant for the Letter of Recommendation. For supporting letter, both of the categories are good.
