Applications for technology visas 'rise after Brexit'
"Applications for visas to allow non-EU immigrant tech workers to work in the UK has increased in popularity post-Brexit.
According to Tech City UK, the government body responsible for processing tech talent visas, more than 300 applications have been received since April, a huge increase compared to the same period last year in which it received 20, The Telegraph reports.
The high number of applications comes after Tech City UK was allowed to hand out 200 visa applications a year for exceptional talent in digital technology in 2014.
While the programme had few applicants in the first few months of its existence, the number appears to have increased.”
