The United Kingdom says foreign nationals can now apply for its scale-up visa effective August 22. According to a statement released on Monday, the government said the new visa is a route for foreign talents who have been sponsored by a company in the UK and who have the skills needed to enable the growth of UK businesses.

The professions qualified for the scale-up visa include scientists, engineers, programmers, software developers, research and development professionals, economists, architects, technicians, financial and investment advisers.

It is believed that many young professionals in Nigeria will be keen to try this – route as they seek better opportunities outside their country of birth.
