Today I want to talk to you about the Tier 1 Investor visa.
This is an exclusive UK program that allows high net worth individuals and their dependents to live and work in the UK while investing in one of the most desirable economies in the world. It leads to a British citizenship and a British passport for those who meet the criteria.
The Investor Visa requires a minimum investment of £2 Million.
Higher investments of 5 Million pounds and 10m pounds will enable an expedited ILR (Indefinite leave to remain) also known as permanent residency or settlement process.
With a Tier 1 Investor Visa you and your dependents can live and work in the UK for up to three years and four months, and then you could qualify for another two-year extension.
Once you have lived in the UK for five years, you could qualify for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). You might further qualify for British citizenship, and your British passport.
Those who invest 5 Million pounds can apply for ILR after 3 years, and those who invest 10 Million pounds can apply for ILR after 2 years.
For each of these options, there are residence requirements that must be met.
The investment funds must be available to be spent in the UK and maintained in a regulated financial institution. You will need to prove the source of the money unless you’ve had it for at least three months and that the money is transferable to the UK.
If the investment funds belong to your partner, further documentation is required. The date you enter the UK is considered your investment start date. From this point, you have three months to invest the full amount of funds.
This investment cannot be in property investment, management, or development, or in companies who mainly deal in such activities. It must be invested mainly in the UK trading companies or bonds.
The Tier 1 Investor Visa is an excellent opportunity for high net worth individuals and their dependents to live and work in the UK that lead towards the British citizenship.

A Y & J Solicitors’ Review
My experience with A Y & J Solicitors was really good. Very detailed and knowledgeable. All my questions were answered on time. They are very approachable and friendly. I would highly recommend them – it may be very simple query or a very complex case; you can trust them.
Having found myself in a rather sticky situation I was desperate for advice/help/guidance. I found A Y & J Solicitors through a friend and with in minutes into my first phone call to them, felt a sense of tremendous peace of mind which I had longed for. Mr Yash spoke very professionally and together with his team went on to do the almost impossible and secure an ‘Out of time’ extremely complicated Tier 2 application for myself and a spouse visa for my wife. Yes they are expensive. But their services are well worth it. They are direct & almost every step of the way they were transparent and kept me updated on the status as and when they knew anything. With out a doubt, I can easily say that our experience with them has been fantastic and would highly recommend their services to any one i know that is looking for a good immigration solicitor. Keep up the excellent work Mr. Yash. God Bless. Thumbs up to the excellent team they have.
I went to Globevisas on a friend’s recommendation and I’m glad I did that. These guys are very helpful and they know what they’re talking about. My ILR application was an extremely smooth experience and was granted without any hassles at all. I would recommend Globevisas to anyone who is looking for help to sort out their visa issues!
