Investor Visas for UK
Start Up Visa (No Minimum Investment Required)
The Start Up Visa offers an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurs to start their career by pursuing a business idea in Britain that will bring wider benefit to the UK economy.
The visa is available for a maximum of two years, after which point the visa holder will either have to apply to switch to another visa category where they can continue to develop their business. Then in year 5, visa holder can get permanent UK residency; which leads to UK citizenship after 1 year.
The visa will only be open to those who have secured appropriate endorsement. Gold Atlantic will help you secure Endorsing Body approval.
Innovator Visa (£50,000 Investment)
Unlike the start-up visa, which is for first-time businesses, the innovator visa is for experienced businesses. The route requires £50,000 investment in the business from any legitimate source.
Before applying to the Home Office for the visa, applicants must first secure endorsement from one of a number of Home Office-appointed endorsing bodies İNn support of the applicant’s relevant experience in business. Gold Atlantic will help you secure Endorsing Body approval.
The endorsing bodies have been charged with assessing applicants’ business ideas against specific criteria of innovation, viability and scalability. In year 5, visa holder can get permanent UK residency; which leads to UK citizenship after 1 year.
Tier 1 Investor Visa (£2,000,000 Investment)
A Tier 1 Investor visa allows you to invest £2,000,000 or more in UK share capital or loan capital in active and trading UK registered companies. Investor visa holders are permitted (but not obliged) to work, study or engage in business activities in the UK.
An initial Tier 1 Investor visa lasts for a total of 3 years and 4 months. (You can apply to extend this visa for another 2 years.)
You will be required to collate and submit extensive documentation to evidence your investment activity during the course of your stay in the UK. Gold Atlantic lawyers have an extensive experience in Tier 1 visas and will support you on each step.
You can apply for permanent residency (settlement) in UK:
