The new start-up visa has been introduced in place of what used to be known as the ‘Prospective Entrepreneur’ visa. This visa was originally used by start-ups in the UK who needed to organize their funding before entering the country as Tier 1 Entrepreneurs.
In June 2018, it was announced by the UK government that there was a new Start-up Visa which would come into circulation at the start of 2019. The press release which was published by the Home Office does not go into complete details about this.
