Obtain a 3 years 4 months visa Invest at least £200,000 Own a business in the UK
While most people dream of visiting the UK, here’s your chance to not just visit but to live and work there. If you are a non-European and have £200,000 in invest, then Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa is for you. The United Kingdom invites entrepreneurs who wish to set up and run a business in their country.
This visa type is largely popular among the Indian entrepreneurs and investors. It not just allows them to own a business in the UK, but also lets them live there with their family for 3 years and 4 months and another 2 years of extended period.
Moreover, the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa holders can apply for settlement (also referred to as “indefinite leave to remain”) after a period of 5 years stay in the UK. That’s not all. There are more benefits in store for successful applicants.
You can check your eligibility with Golden Future to know if you qualify and what are the benefits you can avail. Some common benefits are however mentioned below.
