USA and the UK
If you are a high net-worth individual interested in coming to the UK to invest in a business or company, you may be eligible for the Tier 1 Investor Visa.
The UK Investor Visa requires the applicant to have access to at least £2 million before making their application. You must also be intending to invest the entire sum in UK businesses. This type of visa does not require you to have a job offer or a UK sponsor to apply. This is a points-based application which will depend on the expectation that you will be investing £2 million or more into the UK economy. You are not required to pass the English Language requirement or show that you have adequate maintenance funds.

This visa route is not subject to a job offer or valid sponsorship. You will be eligible to apply if you have £2 million available to invest in the UK economy.
The UK Investor Visa does not require you to meet the English Language Requirement. This is unlike any other points-based-system (PBS) applications.
There is also not an expectation to show sufficient maintenance funds.
The UK is one of the top destinations for financial services and attracts a lot of foreign investment in this sector. Investment in markets across the economy is made through London’s many thriving banks and asset management firms.
For your application to be successful, you will need to ensure you invest your money in active UK businesses.
The property sector is an attractive option for investors. But a UK Investor Visa application could be unsuccessful if the applicant plans to invest only in property. To ensure your UK Tier 1 Visa application has the best chance of success, a diverse investment portfolio is vital.
If your Tier 1 Investor Visa application is refused, you have a right to review within 28 days and can appeal the decision within 10 days. There is no guarantee that your appeal will be successful.
Our expert lawyers will be able to advise you on the merits of your appeal and advise you on your best options. We also have an excellent track record of successful appeals and can assist you with the appeal process.
On a UK Investor Visa, once you have invested £2 million, you can get a Tier 1 Investor Visa extension and apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after five years. If you have invested £5 million, you can apply for ILR after three years. Investing at least £10 million will allow you to apply for settled status in the UK after two years.
Our immigration lawyers can consult with you in any way which suits you. We are available in person, on the phone or via Skype and will ensure we are able to work around your schedule. For the best chance of receiving your Tier 1 Investor Visa, we are here to help.
