The visa category was specifically created with the needs of a business person in mind and is proving very attractive as an option for international business persons wanting to do business in the EMEA market using the United Kingdom as a springboard.

In order to qualify you will have to have £200,000 of your own money available to invest in a business in the UK. Money may be included from a third party that is available to you or the business you are running. The good news is that you will also be allowed to enter the UK with a business partner, as long as you both have access to the joint funds of £200,000. Therefore both you and your business partner and your respective families can take benefit of this opportunity relying on the same £200,000.

Amongst the many advantages this visa category offers one could include the following:

  • Your spouse/civil partner/unmarried partner and dependants will be able to accompany you, and they will be able to work without restriction.
  • The category leads to Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK and thereafter to British Citizenship for you and your family.
  • You may be able to obtain permanent residency in the United Kingdom in as little as 3 years.
  • You will enjoy more flexibility regarding the travel restrictions imposed upon you, as can spend up to 180 days each year outside the UK without affecting your right to settle in the UK.

Please contact our offices for more information on the requirements of this visa.
