Business Visa

In the current economic climate there are a number of new start up companies and business. The UK government is currently promoting new business or start up companies. Therefore the UK is currently seeking business investors from abroad to invest in the UK by setting a new business or buying an existing business.

Current business categories which are open:

Tier 1 High Value Migrants
• Investor
• Entrepreneur
• General
• Graduate Entrepreneur

All the above categories are assessed on a point base system. The applicant will need to attain the minimum points in order to be eligible.


To apply under this category the client must score 95 points, as follows:
1. Funds of £200,000 – 75 points
2. English Language – 10 points
3. Maintenance – 10 points.

The Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) category is for individuals who want to operate their own business in the UK. The client will be able to work full time in their own business.

We can assist in preparing a suitable business plan and also provide the appropriate advice regarding company/partnership formation.

The benefits of applying under this category is that dependent spouse and children can apply at the same time as the main applicant.
