1: The situation

Sherif was a UAE National.

He had been making large investments in the UK for many years and was now in a position to enter so that he could personally oversee the workings of his business.

He had only ever entered the UK on a Business Visitor Visa before this – he was not sure what he had to do to remain for a longer period of time.

Sherif emailed us to arrange a suitable time to call.

2: How IAS helped

The following day, our lawyer spoke with Sherif, outlined his circumstances and determined that he was eligible for a Tier 1 Investor Visa.

They discussed at length the sources and means of the capital he was looking to invest and his investment plans while in the UK.

He was provided with a full set of instructions, documents and requirements that he could follow.

Owing to the complexity of the case, Sherif instructed us to take full ownership of his application and his lawyer worked very closely with him over the following weeks.

3: The outcome

A few weeks after submission, Sherif received his decision – he was permitted UK entry as a Tier 1 Investor.

Given the level of investment, he was eligible to make, Sherif will soon be able to extend his Tier 1 Visa and come closer to applying for early settlement.
