Tier 1 (Investor) visa

A Tier 1 (Investor) visa unlocks a secure and fast-track route for investor applicants and their family. The visa enables them to relocate to the UK and enjoy the high living standards, security and renowned education and start the journey towards UK Citizenship. The Investor route requires a substantial investment of £2 m/£5/ or £10m in share or loan capital in active UK businesses. Tier 1 applications are fast: the processing time is just 3-4 weeks. The initial visa is granted for 3 years and 4 months (3 years if processed in the UK).

After this time, applicants can request a 2-year extension provided that they meet the eligibility criteria. Applicants who spent a continuous period of 5 years in the UK can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). Accelerated routes to settlement can be sought after 3 years with the overall investment of £5 million, or after 2 years with the total of £10 million. Knowledge of the English language is not required for the initial visa, however it is among the requirements for subsequent ILR applications.
