政府加强对杰出人才的引进和鼓励，扩大第一级签证类别中的杰出人才签证名额。简单而言：如果您获得了了Royal Society，Birtish Academy，Royal Academy of Engineering，Tec city 等多个政府机构或者商业机构的认可及推荐，可以考虑申请这个签证。 但是，需要注意的是，这个签证类别看重的人士，相对要求比较高，例如获得皇家协会，皇家工程师协会的推荐的级别，基本上......普通毕业生可以忽略不记。 值得推荐的是数字城的竞赛报名项目，其实非常有意思，比较适合金融类或者计算机类，营销管理类的毕业生尝试。简单来说就是递交一个商业计划，最好是和互联网，互联网金融科技类相关的项目，比较容易受到青睐。

简单来说：旧有的政策，每年分配给杰出人才签证的名额为1000名，并且是每年4月分配好给所有的认证机构，新的政策则从每年1000名增加为2000名，多出来的1000名并不事先分配，而是采取”先到先得”的机制，由各个机构自由争取。另外，在认证机构上也有少许更动，增加了Royal Cociety，Birtish Academy，Royal Academy of Engineering 等三个机构。
