UK Tier 1 Investor Visa

Our most popular residency programme

The UK Tier 1 Investor Visa is the premiere route to gaining British citizenship for high net worth individuals if you are able to meet the residency requirements. Tier 1 Investor Visa requires a passive investment of two million pounds in UK corporate bonds or equities, and entitles holders and their immediate family to apply for temporary residency in Britain. Investors can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain after five years and British citizenship and passport after six years. The whole family including children under the age of 18 can live, work and study in UK with no English language requirement. Benefits of acquiring residence through the UK Tier 1 Program include freedom of movement within the UK, access to incredible work and education opportunities for the whole family and recoverable investment options for the program’s investment requirements.

An investment of GBP two million allows investors and their family members to apply for a temporary resident visa in the United Kingdom, with settlement for the entire family in five years and citizenship after six years. An investment of GBP five million allows accelerated settlement in three years and citizenship after five years and GBP 10 million allows settlement in two years and citizenship after five years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to know English to get an Investor Visa?2021-02-09T12:58:00+00:00

There are no English language requirements for the Investor Visa. However, if you wish to apply for settlement, you will need to pass an English test. 

If I have an Investor visa, do I need to live in the UK?2021-02-09T12:57:49+00:00

The investor visa gives you the freedom to enter and exit the UK as you wish, so there is no requirement to spend time in the UK on an investor visa. However, if you wish to obtain settlement in the UK and then apply for British nationality, you will need to make sure your absences from the UK do not exceed 180 days in any 12-month period as this could negatively impact your application for settlement.

Is it possible to acquire British citizenship through the Investor Visa?2021-02-09T12:56:32+00:00

The Tier 1 (Investor) visa provides a route to settlement provided that the investor meets certain other conditions. The amount of time you reside in the UK on a Tier 1 (Investor) visa before you can get settlement depends on how much money you invest. Settlement can be obtained in either 2, 3 or 5 years. Once you have had settlement, also known as Indefinite Leave to Remain, for 12 months, you can then apply to be naturalised as a British citizen. Once your naturalisation application is approved, you can apply for your passport. 

How long do I need to invest in the UK under the terms of this visa?2021-02-09T13:50:14+00:00

You will need to invest at least £2 million into the UK for the entire duration of your visa or until you obtain settlement in the UK, whichever comes sooner. Unlike many other residence or citizenship by investment programs around the world, there are no direct fees or cash payments to the UK government. The investor is simply required to invest their money in the shares or bonds of a listed UK company(-ies).

Is the Investor visa open for applications?2021-02-09T12:55:40+00:00

Yes. The UK Tier 1 (Investor) visa category remains open to new applicants who have at least GBP 2 million available to invest into actively trading UK companies. The visa category also remains open for previous applicants looking to apply for an extension. The criteria and documents required are complex and should be reviewed by a qualified immigration lawyer.
