We met at the university and fell in love with each other. We realised that we wanted to live and work together, so we decided to set up a business that would create things for children’s development. Our business was successful in India, but we did not stop at that. We visited the UK as tourists and then decided to relocate here. Obviously, we did not know where to start and which visa to choose. Luckily, we found Imperial & Legal’s website, and here we are!
The United Kingdom welcomes talented foreign specialists and attracts entrepreneurs from all over the world thanks to a favourable investment environment. They, in return, bring innovations into the British economy.
A UK Innovator visa gives ambitious foreign entrepreneurs an opportunity to start and develop their business in one of the world’s economic and financial hubs. With relatively low investment requirements, this immigration route gives its applicants access to the best technologies and other opportunities.
A young couple from India, graduates of the Bombay Institute of Technology, asked Imperial & Legal to assist them with relocating to the UK. They thought that immigration is something they would like professionals to help them with, who stay up to date with the latest changes in British immigration law.
Devlan and Ayana are partners in life and in business. They develop online game platforms for children and teenagers. They wanted to move to the UK. But the question was, ‘Will their business, so successful in India, also succeed in the UK, with a different market and culture?’
Initially, Devlan and Ayana wanted to apply for a UK Student visa because it seemed a more straightforward and easy option. They would enrol in a British university, get a degree and then decide where to settle.
However, during a consultation, Imperial & Legal’s immigration advisors offered them another option – a UK Innovator visa. It has a high potential for expanding a business and entering the international market. Devlan and Ayana were unsure about this route since they did not understand how they would support themselves financially while developing their business. But after careful consideration, they decided to risk it and apply for a UK Innovator visa.
To prepare a business plan to get our clients’ business idea endorsed, collect the required documents and apply for a UK Innovator visa.
Devlan and Ayana’s business was already up and running; they had set it up at the university. They created a game for children under five years old to learn foreign languages and develop fine motor skills. It is well known that pre-schoolers learn through play, so the game ideally addressed the educational needs of that age group. A business idea was already there.
The only thing that our experts recommended our clients do was to tweak the game to the needs of European children. They did that and the business plan was spot on.
A UK Innovator visa gave Devlan and Ayana a lot of opportunities, including staying in the country for three years. At the end of these three years, if their business is successful and fulfils certain financial requirements, they will be able to apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and two years later, for British citizenship.
Our clients worried that the endorsing body might not appreciate their business idea, but it turned out to be very convincing. The endorser saw the potential of online games in developing various skills for children in the UK.
Imperial & Legal’s immigration advisors helped Devlan and Ayana collect the required documents and apply for a UK Innovator visa.
A year later, our clients invited us to a presentation of their new online education platform for universities and law firms. They were very grateful to us for making their dream come true. We were also very happy for the couple because they had a baby girl born in the UK. They named her Vardania meaning “someone who brings luck”.
