Entrepreneur Visa

If you wish to set up or take over a UK business to live and work in the UK the Tier 1 Entrepreneur category will allow you to do this. You must show that you have at least £200,000 available for investment into a new or existing business where the investment will create at least two new full-time jobs for UK residents. Funds made available by third parties, such as family or investors, may also be taken into account.

Applicants can also qualify if they have access to at least £50,000 obtained from regulated venture capital firms. A Prospective Entrepreneur visitor category has been introduced for entrepreneurs to come to the UK for discussions to secure funding.

You will need to apply for visas in your country of residence. Your application will be considered under Tier 1 of the UK’s Points Based System which requires you to score sufficient points based on investment funds available, English language ability and personal funds to support you and any family that will be coming with you.
