There is a plan to offer fast track UK visas to Oscar, Grammy and Nobel Prize-winners.

The visa will make them live and work in the UK more easily under point-based immigration reforms, BBC reports.

At the moment, the Home Office has announced its decision to “fast track” the process for those winning coveted arts awards.

The idea also aims to attract the “best and brightest” from around the world.

Among those who will be eligible are International stars who have won Bafta, Brit, Mobo, Tony or Golden Globe awards.

Previously the visa application process, known as the Global Talent route, meant artists and producers had to receive an endorsement from one of six bodies.

But from Wednesday, new post-Brexit rules allow people who hold a qualifying prize to make a simpler single visa application.
