Thank you for your question.
To be eligible for a Tier 1 entrepreneur visa with £50,000 investment, you will need to show the the funds come from the following sources:
- a UK entrepreneurial seed funding competition endorsed by the Department for International Trade (DIT)
- a UK government department making funds available for the purpose of setting up or expanding a UK business
- a venture capital firm registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

You can also apply if you’ve already invested £50,000 in a UK business. You must have invested the funds less than 12 months before you apply.

The UKVI will also want to see that you are a 'genuine entrepreneur' and have a clear business plan, money to support yourself and can pass the English language requirmeent. Someone will be in touch with you shortly to discuss how our solicitors can assist you wityh your application.
