Different investors have different reasons to invest in the UK economy and it is not always because they want to move here. We have already mentioned in our previous posts that investing money in the United Kingdom can be in itself so profitable that investors flock here bringing billions of pounds without the need to benefit from that extra bonus from the government and immigration authorities.
However, a status of a Tier 1 investor gives the right to stay in the UK, study, work or run a business here without any limitations, and in a couple of years an opportunity to apply for UK settlement. And it would be unreasonable not to use this. Here we will advise how an investor can get permanent residence in Great Britain.
Investors have a choice of three timescales for when they can settle in the UK and they are directly linked to the investment amount:
Since the investment can only be made in the capital of UK registered companies, after the changes in March 2019, it is no longer possible to invest in relatively safe government bonds. As any business involves risk it is good to have a choice; the more you are prepared to invest, the quicker you’d get your permanent residence and could decide what to do with the money.
Competent immigration lawyers from our company will help you minimise investment risks by checking and double-checking the background of the business where you want to invest your money.
The Home Office have all the reasons to ask of a person who wants to become permanently resident in the country to get integrated in the British society on a much bigger scale than just a foreign investor. That is why there are a few stringent requirements to comply with when you apply for UK settlement.
If you have moved to the United Kingdom with a family, all adult family members, including your spouse and financially dependent children must pass both an English exam and the Life in the UK test.
If you comply with all the above criteria, you become permanent resident in the UK and free to choose where you will work and live irrespective of your investment and how big it was. If you decide to get your money back, you can do it now.
One year after settlement you can apply for naturalisation and a British passport. It is the last milestone in your immigration history when you become a full-blown citizen of the United Kingdom. The naturalisation process is not to mess about with; it has a lot of pitfalls that would be better to discuss with immigration lawyers.
You might have already realised that the settlement and naturalisation processes are not as easy as they may sound. In order to avoid wasting your time and money, talk to a professional immigration lawyer and they will make it smooth and hassle-free from the initial visa application to your first British passport application.
We will work with you to find a customised solution for your immigration, second citizenship, business, tax and other needs.
