Tier 1 Investor Visa

*NOTE*

You can no longer apply for a new Tier 1 (Investor) visa.  ​One alternative visa route open to career investors currently is the Global Talent visa.

If you already have a Tier 1 (Investor) visa or had one in the last 12 months and it was your most recent visa, you can still apply:

Introduction

The Tier 1 Investor visa is aimed at HNW individuals from outside the European Economic Area who want to move to the UK and make a considerable investment in the UK economy. The visa can apply to family members and other dependents of that individual who wish to relocate with the applicant. If granted, the investor visa enables the applicant to stay in the UK for up to 3 years and 4 months and thereafter extend the visa and settle in the UK.

Tier 1 Investor Visa Extension Application

After the initial application, individuals can apply to extend their visa.

If an individual applied for a Tier 1 investor visa before 6th November 2014, they can apply for an extension if:

  • They have £1 million under their control in the UK
  • They have invested at least 75% of that money in UK government bonds, share capital or loan capital in active UK companies
  • They have invested this amount within 3 months of their “investor start date”.

If an individual applied for a Tier 1 Investor visa on or after 6th November 2014, they can apply for an extension if:

  • They have at least £2 million under their control in the UK
  • They have invested those funds in UK government bonds, share capital or loan capital in active UK companies
  • They have invested this amount within 3 months of their “investor start date”.

Investor Start Date

The investor start date is either the date the applicant arrived in the UK or if there is no proof of that, the date of the original visa application or switch from a different category.

Tier 1 Investor Visa Settlement

After the initial application individuals can apply for settlement, where they will be granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), provided they have not been absent from the UK for more than 180 days in total in each year.

The conditions are as follows:

  • An investment of £2 million will enable the applicant to apply for ILR after 5 years
  • An investment of £5 million will enable the applicant to apply for ILR after 3 years
  • An investment of £10 million will enable the applicant to apply for ILR after 2 years.
