Investor Visas

Our business immigration experts work closely with high net worth individuals who intend to relocate themselves and their family to the UK though investment in the UK

The UK is very much “open for business” and choosing the UK as a place to invest or set up business can only be advantageous. The UK is not only well located between America and Europe but offers a diverse and flexible labour market with a good quality of life, cosmopolitan society and attractive lifestyle opportunities. .

The Tier 1 (Investor) category under the Points Bases System is ideal for those non-EU nationals with at least £2 million available who intend to invest at least £750,000 into specified investments, such as government bonds or shares in UK listed companies. This visa route allows investors to not only reside in the UK but to also obtain permanent residency via the accelerated route.

This is achieved by maintaining levels of investment as follows:

Investment in UK Residency for Permanent Residency

£10 million 2 years

£5 million 3 years

£2 million or £1 million (pre 6th Nov 2014) 5 years

Our immigration specialist summarises the benefits of the Tier 1 Investor visa below:

No English language requirement

No maintenance requirement

An accelerated route to permanent residence in the UK

Absences from the UK for up to 180 days in any calendar year without losing the right to apply for permanent residency
