How does the UKBA define a creative worker? The UKBA website seems to provide greater description of what kind of sportspersons can apply under the Tier 5 Temporary Worker-creative and sporting visa, but provides less description for creative workers. Do creative workers include anyone working in an arts field at any level? Or, like sportspersons, must you be someone who is internationally established working at the highest level in their field?

You would need a sponsor.

. For a creative worker and their entourage operating in dance, theatre,
or film and television, the sponsor must commit to following the specified code of practice specified in the Immigration Rules, which includes taking into account the needs of the resident labour market in that area. Where your job is not covered by
a specific code of practice, your sponsor must show that the post could not have been filled by a settled worker. Examples to demonstrate this might be recruitment activity undertaken, written support from an appropriate industry representative body or sector labour market information.


Government authorised exchange may be worth exploring too.
