The Tier 1 Investor Visa is intended for individuals who are prepared to invest at least £2,000,000 in the UK economy. The UK’s immigration policy encourages direct investments and offers investors from third countries the most favorable conditions for receiving a residency permit, followed by permanent residency and citizenship.
You and your family members will have the right to live in the UK, do business, work, study for free, and enjoy all the other rights of UK residents.
An applicant for a UK investor visa does not have to prove a knowledge of English and does not have to show funds for his/her family to live in the UK.
When obtaining a visa, you do not need to start a business and prove real efforts in this vein. The investor only has to choose an investment option.
Investors and their family members can receive permanent residency in the UK already after only 2 years, and then claim citizenship only 3 years after receiving permanent residency.
The visa is initially issued for three years with a following extension for two years. Only the main applicant is required to spend at least 183 days per year in the UK.
