This is the best choice for affluent foreigners who want to move to the UK. Under this route, a minimum investment of £2,000,000 in the British economy is required. Your family members, including your spouse and children, may be included in your Tier 1 Investor visa application. There are no requirements with regards to language level or work experience. Under this route you are allowed to work, study or run a business in the UK, but you are under no obligation to do so.
This visa was designed for entrepreneurs who wanted to invest in their business in the UK. This included investment in starting a new or running an existing business. The minimum investment was £200,000. From 29 March 2019, the Home Office stopped accepting new applications for this type of visa, but those who had received their visa before that date may extend it or apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain.
A representative of an overseas business visa is ideal for those who occupy a senior position in a company whose headquarters are located in a foreign country and that is planning to set up its representation in the UK. No investment is required under this route, but there are requirements with regards to your work experience and English skills.
This visa is a great solution for experienced entrepreneurs who wish to invest in starting a new or running an existing business in the UK. The minimum investment is £50,000. The main applicant must also have relevant experience in running a business and get endorsement by the relevant body.
This visa is designed for a new entrepreneur or a group of them, who want to set up a company in the UK without any initial investment. This company must be your first business in the UK, and your business idea needs to be endorsed by the relevant body.
This route is aimed for spouses, civil partners (including same-sex partners) and fiancés/fiancées of a British national or a person granted the UK ILR.
Because of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, all the EU nationals had to secure a special status to continue staying in the UK. Under exceptional circumstances Europeans and their family members may apply for this till June 2022.
We provide help with relocation to the UK for nationals of other countries who come to the UK to get a job from the list of prescribed jobs or to get educated. Besides, we can assist you with getting other visas which are more common – to visit the UK as a tourist, on a business trip, to receive medical treatment or for any other purpose requiring a short-term visa.
With the assistance of our qualified experts you can relocate to the UK and get naturalised within just several years. The whole process from getting a visa to obtaining a British passport can be divided into 5 stages. Legal experts at Imperial & Legal can provide comprehensive support at all the stages of the process.
Yes, it does, provided that you have invested in real economy of the UK at least £10,000,000. The following table shows how the sum invested is related to the time frame of getting ILR under the Tier 1 Investor visa route.
As you can see, the more you have invested, the sooner you can get ILR. But you must remember that you will need to do more than just invest your money. ILR is only granted to investors who are integrated in the UK society, have at least a basic level of English and are familiar with the way of life in the country where they are planning to settle.
In order to have your business idea endorsed by a relevant body, it must comply with 3 criteria:
To put it simply, your business must:
Possess growth potential or, in other words, generate more taxes and create jobs for British residents.
Some time ago your only solution would be a short-term student visa. But due to changes in the immigration legislation, which were brought into force on 1 December 2020, now you only need a visitor visa to stay in the UK for educational purposes for up to 6 months.
There is nothing pleasant in this, but it still can be fixed, if the reason for the refusal was not providing willful misrepresentations to mislead a caseworker. The first thing to do is to get in touch with qualified immigration advisers. They will thoroughly consider the refusal letter and come up with a strategy.
If you got the refusal because some required documents had not been provided or an error had been made while filling in the application, an adviser will help you to correct all the mistakes, and once the fee is paid, you can reapply.
If it clearly was a mistake of a Home Office caseworker which resulted in the refusal, experts from Imperial & Legal will assist you in preparing and submitting a request for reconsideration. Fortunately, the process of getting a visa is highly formalised, and requires little involvement of a caseworker. So, if there really was an error made by a caseworker, your problem will be willingly solved.
If the adviser decides that the refusal seriously violated your rights, you can file an appeal with an independent British court and hope for justice. Statistically the British Home Office loses such cases in up to 75% of cases.
