Provided you have at least £2 million of savings or disposable income to spend, you can apply for a Tier 1 Investor Visa to enter and reside in the UK, with the assumption that you invest your wealth into the UK’s economy.

You do not need a job offer or a sponsor to apply in the Investor Visa category. Your Tier 1 application will be based on your ability to invest a minimum of £2 million in the UK. Unlike most other applicants under the points-based system, you will not need to meet the English Language requirement, nor show that you have sufficient maintenance funds to support yourself.

Our specialist immigration lawyers offer premium consultation services for those looking to invest in the UK on a Tier 1 Investor Visa. We will work around your busy schedule; our consultations can be conducted via Skype, telephone or in person. We will advise you on your investment options and ensure that you are eligible for this type of visa. Your lawyer will also prepare a Letter of Representation. This letter provides the Home Office with the details and merits of your case, as well as referencing any relevant UK immigration laws to support your case. They will also complete your application form to the highest standard and submit it to the Home Office. Contact us on 0333 363 8577 or make an enquiry online for an in-depth discussion about your Tier 1 Investor Visa application.
