Are you looking to invest or start a business in the UK?
The UK is a leading hub in business and world leadership. It is no surprise many people opt to grow their business in one of the worlds’ dominating markets. The British government offers many schemes, grants, and loans for those wishing to start their own business in the United Kingdom.
Those who are highly skilled and exceptionally talented workers, or investors and entrepreneurs with financial might, can apply to enter or remain in the UK without needing a job offer, although in most cases the points-based assessment still applies. The Home Office applies a points-based system in conjunction with other category-specific requirements under the Immigration Rules.
Tier 1 of the system for high-value migrants contains five categories: Global Talent Visa, Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur Visa, Tier 1 Investor Visa and Tier 1 General Visa.
We offer high-quality business consultation services, where one of our lawyers will advise you on your best options. We will work with you to ensure you are fully prepared for your interview and that any business, marketing or investment plans are sufficient. Your advice session will be untimed and your lawyer will spend as much time with you require.
UK High-Value Visa requirements are some of the most difficult to meet as Tier 1 applications are scrutinised by the Home Office and have very high refusal rates. Working with one of our immigration lawyers will ensure that you and company are fully prepared for the application. With IAS, your application will be completed to the highest possible standard.
We have offices located across the UK, including in London, Manchester, or Birmingham. You can also use the office finder to find the closest branch to you. Get in touch today on 0333 363 8577 or by using our online enquiry form for more advice and support on your UK Tier 1 Visa application.
