Can I apply for a Tier 1 Investor Visa?
Unlike most other points-based visa applications, there are few requirements for the Tier 1 Investor Visa UK. The 75 points for this application are granted by having £2 million available to you, your spouse or your long-term partner.
You will not need to pass an English Language test, be sponsored by a UK business or institution or prove you have adequate maintenance.
This type of Tier 1 Visa requires you to invest all £2 million into UK businesses within the first three months of your visa being granted, so it is important that the money you use for your application is freely available for you to invest with before you apply for your visa.
