Dear Sir,

Many thanks for your question.

You can come to the UK with a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa for a maximum of 3 years and 4 months. You can extend this visa for another 2 years if you’re already in this category.

You may be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) once you’ve been in the UK for 5 years. You may also be eligible to apply for fast track settlement under the Tier 1 Entrepreneur in 3 years providing you meet the various requirements. You may apply for citizenship one year after you have obtained ILR.

Our solicitors will contact you shortly to discuss this further.
