Tier 1 Investor Visa
The Tier 1 investor visa is for high net worth individuals who wish to invest £2 million or more into UK government bonds, share capital or loan capital in active and trading UK registered companies.
To qualify under this route, you must:
• demonstrate that you or your partner have the investment funds (£2 million or more) under your control, held in a regulated financial institution and can be freely transferred to the UK;
• have opened an account with a UK regulated bank for the purposes of investing the funds.
Under this route you will not need to show that you have any English language ability or maintenance funds to support yourself and your family in the UK.
Once your application is approved, you will be granted 3 years and 4 months initial leave that can be extended for a further period of 2 years, subject to meeting the requirements for leave to remain under the immigration rules. Upon completing 5 years, you can apply for indefinite leave to remain followed by British citizenship.
You may be eligible to apply for settlement after 3 years if you have invested £5 million or after 2 years if you have invested £10 million, after which time you may be eligible to apply for British Citizenship.
Your family members (partners and children under 18) can apply to join you in the UK under this visa.
Once the application is approved, you will be given 3 years and 4 months initial leave in line with the main applicant’s leave that can be extended for a further period of 2 years, subject to meeting the requirements for leave to remain in the immigration rules.
