Investment Options

The UK offers two visa investment options—the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa and Tier 1 Investor Visa—both of which allow applicants to get residency within a span of just 3-9 months. Investors in both cases must reside in the UK to gain Indefinite Leave to Remain and Citizenship.

Tier 1 Investor Visa

Investors must commit a minimum of £2,000,000 into UK government bonds, share capital, or loan capital. This must be inactive and trading UK-registered companies. The investment must be maintained for a period of five years (with a visa renewal after three years)—after which there is an option to obtain Indefinite Leave to Remain.

A minimum investment of £5,000,000 will accelerate the option for Indefinite Leave to Remain to three years and a minimum investment of £10,000,000 will accelerate the option for Indefinite Leave to Remain to just two years.

Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa

This option is ideal for successful business investors who want to set up or take over a UK-based business and operate it on their own. Investors must have a transferable minimum amount of £200,000 in personal funds to invest in the business over a period of one year.

The business is required to create a minimum of two full-time jobs and run successfully for at least three years to gain a visa extension of two more years. Indefinite Leave to Remain is given after five years. The business must operate within the UK economy, employ British nationals, and will be subject to UK taxation.
