Chatting to Jônatas from Manchester via Skype, it was abundantly clear that he not only met all the criteria to apply for the UK TechNation endorsement by Tech City for an Exceptional Talent, but he exceeded them. The only issue was convincing Jônatas that he had. Jônatas […]

I am now the recipient of the TechNation Exceptional Talent Visa! The good news seemed surreal because after 3 stressful months of working so hard to get this little card that says I can stay in the UK for 5 years, all […]
