Today we have already got 2021 in our calendars and minds and I have my Global Talent Visa Blog updates. I was thinking about this blog, thousands of talented people, who read it. Finally, I made one important and life-changing decision.
The History of This Blog
I started this Blog in late 2016. Sure, I remember that time: I had just arrived to the United Kingdom from Ukraine. I was so inspired by my Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa (which is called Global Talent Visa now).
In a couple of months, I had my first questions from the readers. Then I have even an individual meeting with a person in Canada Water Library, when he brought his dozens of pages of Talent Visa application and I was sharing my knowledge with him. I was proud and happy when he was endorsed by Tech Nation!
Then I got more and more questions. Each person asked me about support, knowledge and help with Global Talent Visa application. Even with understanding that I’m not an immigration advisor but just an experienced person, they asked me and I was always so glad to share my knowledge.
Since today I decided radically change the future of this Blog, I’ve decided to report about my activity.
Statistics and Key Facts About Talent Visa Blog
During the last four years I have written 142 articles about Global Talent Visa Blog. Most of them are about Endorsement stage (83%) and Stage 2 or Tech Nation Visa News (17%). Additionally, my articles, which are related to Endorsement, explain basics about Personal Statement (35%), Letter of Recommendation (48%) and supporting documents (17%) .
Additionally, as you know, my Blog was equipped by Drift Messenger. I got pretty good results of communication via this method. Sorry, dear readers, who wrote to me in the last couple of weeks at the end of 2020- I didn’t reply.
Below I decided to share a couple of insights about the work, which I’ve done via Drift.
Information about Global Talent Visa requests
I must say that all of these emails with questions are not single communication. In fact, with most of the readers I had more than two emails in a thread. But with some of the talented digital experts – even more than 10 or 20 emails. The absolute record is 39 (!!!) emails is a thread. Just look at this:
Additionally, I must say that in October 2020 I wrote a Medium blog “The Most Comprehensive Guide for Global Talent Visa (Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa)“. I think it was quite helpful for Global Talent Visa applicants during the last two months as well:

Finally, the main news of today is my decision to quit.
I understand that helping applicants is so important since more talented people can come to the United Kingdom. At the same time, as you can see from the data, provided above, I have done pretty much work.Andrii Seleznov, Talent Visa Help
Understanding the priorities of my life I won’t be able to provide any answers to emails and messages to me, related to Global Talent Visa.
I suggest that my Blog is detailed enough and it has pretty much facts and information about this visa route.
Also, I cannot support you with sharing my opinions about your drafts anymore.
#TalentVisaHelp won’t be active anymore as well.
Finally, I would like to ask you about one favour. If my Global Talent Visa Blog has helped you, please, donate any sum of money to the National Association for People Abused in Childhood.
This is the charity of my choice and personally I support their vision.
I consider that Global Talent Visa route is one of the most inspiring immigration initiatives of the United Kingdom. Thanks to Global Talent Visa, hundreds of talented people from all continents of the world come to the UK and bring their exceptional professionalism and niche expertise.
Tech Nation Visa or Global Talent Visa in Digital Technologies is the helpful instrument to make the UK more digitally advanced and increase the overall competitive advantage of the country.
I am one of the honoured recipients of Tech Nation Visa. As many of other folks in our Global Talent Visa community, I came to the UK and believe that we can positively impact the UK society not only by our professional advancement but also – by helping with the most painful (and sometimes hidden) problems.
I strongly believe that, childhood memories can influence adult lives in a number of ways. They can contribute to our overall sense of happiness in life. And, we’ll definitely need more happy people!Andrii Seleznov, Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa (Global Talent Visa) Recipient
That’s why I’d like to ask you to donate any sum of money for National Association for People Abused in Childhood via JustGiving.
I suggest this is one of the most relevant way how we can help people, abused in childhood, during this time of global uncertainty.
