British Fashion Council to assess fashion visas‘just-style.com

In a statement on Friday (6 July), the BFC said it has been working with Arts Council England (ACE), in partnership with the Home Office and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to expand and promote the Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa to fashion industry applicants.

As a result, the BFC will now work as an independent assessor for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visa applications in the fashion industry, effective immediately.

The number of Tier 1 Exceptional Talent visas that the Government is willing to approve was increased in November 2017 from 1,000 to 2,000, and half of these will be allocated on a demand-led basis. This creates a significant opportunity for the fashion industry in the UK to attract and retain key designers, talent and creatives.
