Tier 1 Investor & Entrepreneur Visa
Investors and entrepreneurs are able to come to the UK where they can invest and be part of a world leading market. The United Kingdom has always been an attractive destination for high net worth individuals, with London in particular being a global beacon for stability and international investment.
London is a major global ﬁnancial and commercial hub for both local and international businesses. It is recognised as one of the three global economic centres in the world.
If you are a non E.U or U.K citizen looking to invest in the UK, it is important to seek legal advice to understand the migration options open to you and to ensure all business is carried out legally. Whether you are looking to establish your own business, invest in an existing business, or simply make investments in the ﬁnancial markets, Aston Gowman Solicitors are here to provide you with a bespoke service tailored to your speciﬁc business needs.
We can provide you with full service consultancy on many aspects of your business and introduce you to the right people and institutions that will help you and your business grow as well as provide vital asset and investment protection services.
The Tier 1 Investor and Tier 1 Entrepreneur visas are subject to a number of set criteria and it is important to ensure you are best placed to meet these from the beginning. Failure to do so can be fatal to future applications to remain in the UK.
Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa
You can apply for a Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visa if you:
- Are a graduate who has been officially endorsed as having a genuine and credible business idea
- Are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland
- Meet the other eligibility criteria
Tier 2 Sponsor License and Visas
To ensure maximum efficiency and profit, certain companies may need to source specialist skilled workers from abroad. The process is commonly referred to as “sponsorship”.
In order to employ overseas workers in the UK, a company will first need to obtain a Tier 2 Sponsor License from the Home Office. Once the license has been granted, the company can then proceed to issue individual certificates to sponsor employees from abroad.
Our corporate immigration department has significant experience in obtaining Tier 2 Licenses for a range of companies as well as challenging the Home Office decisions to suspend or revoke a company’s license.
