Important! From 29 March 2019, Tier 1 (Investor) visa requirements will be dramatically toughened; additional financial checks will be carried out and bank statements for the last 2 years will be required instead of the current 90 days. Don’t miss your chance to apply before 29 March 2019 under the existing rules.
Tier 1 Investor visa is the easiest way for wealthy foreign nationals to move to the United Kingdom. Under this category you will be asked to invest a minimum of £2,000,000 in the country for no more than five years.
Investment of £5m or £10m entitles an investor to settle in 3 or 2 years correspondingly. You don’t need to prove your knowledge of English till you apply to settle.
Imperial & Legal will guide you through the visa application process and investing of the required amount to get permanent residence in UK and later apply for British passport. We also assist with opening an investment account which is mandatory for Tier 1 Investor visa.
Investors can bring all their immediate family members, including spouse and children. They are permitted, but not obliged, to work, get education and do business in the UK. Other benefits include:
Proof of £2,000,000 available in a bank account in almost any country. These funds must have been held there for at least 3 consecutive months, otherwise you will need to demonstrate their source. Apart from the proof of funds the applicant must meet the following requirements:
First visa is issued for 3 years and 4 months.
An applicant must prove that at least £2,000,000 were invested within 3 months after your first entry in the UK (‘investor start date’), and no money has been withdrawn from the account for the duration of your visa.
New regulations don’t require you to maintain the same level of investments, i.e. if the market value of the bonds drops down, nothing is expected of you.
Apart from that, you need to prove that you first arrived in the country within 3 months after your visa was issued, and all adults were registered with the police.
Tier 1 Investor visa is extended for 2 years.
Investors can apply for settlement (or Indefinite Leave to Remain, ILR) after they have spent in the UK continuously 2, 3 or 5 years, depending on the investment:
To apply for ILR, you must prove that:
You and your family can apply to be naturalised or registered as British citizens in 12 months after ILR is granted and 5 years after first entry under Tier 1 Investor visa, provided everybody meets all the eligibility criteria:
You can use the VIP service to extend Tier 1 Investor visa or apply for ILR. In this case the Home Office will come to you to take your fingerprints and photograph. Usually, decision is made within 24 hours.
