The Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa route has one of the highest refusal rates out of all the UK visas. With 1/3 of all applications for Entrepreneur Visas refused by the Home Office every year, preparation is crucial. If you have had your Entrepreneur Visa refused, you may want to start a fresh application or begin what is called an Administrative Review.

Aside from the application form, there are two main elements of a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa application: the business plan and the interview. Each of these elements will be scrutinised by the Home Office when they are assessing your application. Because of this, it is crucial that you are well-prepared for each part before you apply.

If your application for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, or for a Tier 1 Visa Extension, has already been refused you are advised to seek the help of an immigration lawyer who can assess your next steps and appeal options.

Our immigration lawyers can help you determine whether you are eligible to appeal your Entrepreneur Visa refusal. One of our lawyers can support you throughout your entire appeal process, completing your application and legally representing you. Your lawyer will compile a Letter of Representation to be submitted in support of your appeal or application.

FAQs

I’ve had my Entrepreneur Visa refused – what do I do now?

If your Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa is refused you will receive a Letter of Refusal from the Home Office.

This will usually inform you of the grounds of your refusal, as well as your next steps if you wish to appeal. If you would like to appeal because you feel there was a mistake made by your caseworker or your application was refused on genuinely unfair grounds, you can then apply for an Administrative Review.

This will allow your application to be reviewed again and may result in your refusal being rescinded. If this fails you can challenge again by applying for permission to pursue Judicial Review.

How can I minimise the chances of an Entrepreneur Visa refusal?

When applying for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, it is crucial that you are fully prepared for each part of your application. Your business plan must be detailed, precise and achievable. You must also be fully prepared for your entrepreneur interview, in which you will be asked about your business plan, your background, and your future intentions.
