Areas of Expertise:
Thank you for your question.
The eligibility criteria for a Tier 1 entrepreneur visa includes:
- having access to either £50,000 or £200,000 in funds to invest in a start-up venture or an existing company
- you need to work for the start-up or existing company
- there is a 'genuine entrepreneur test' which needs to be passed
- you must present a valid business plan
- meet the English language requirement
- show you can support yourself during your stay
- score 95 points under the PBS
- be at least 16 years old
The application process can be very tough; it is often good to have the support of an experienced immigration solicitor to guide you through the process. We have successfully assisted many Tier 1 entrepreneur visa applicants in obtaining their visa. Someone will be in touch with you shortly to discuss this further.
