Uk Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa

Apply for Investor Visa under UK Tier 1 Process

The UK Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa is issued to individuals or applicants who are either small scale or large scale entrepreneurs and are looking to set up a new business in the UK. The only applicants that are eligible for this kind of visa are entrepreneurs that are non-citizens in Britain or that are not members of countries in the European Economic Area, including Switzerland.

A non-EEA entrepreneur who is interested in getting this UK Visa must be worth, in the least, €50,000, or must have access to this fund as an investment into the business he or she wants to start.

How long does it take to get this visa?

According to the UK Immigration, this visa takes about a month before decisions are made on them by the Visa Services. However, an applicant who is an entrepreneur and wants to set up his or her business in the UK must apply three months before the intended travel. This means that an entrepreneur who is set to travel by the 31st of December should have applied for this visa since the 30th of September. Decisions are often made in three weeks after the application.


The amount paid by an applicant of the UK Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa is subjected to the situation around the application. It can be where such an applicant is applying from or how such an applicant is applying.

  • If an applicant is applying by post or online in the UK, he or she will be required to pay the sum of €1,277. However, if the person is applying from outside the UK, he or she will be required to pay the sum of €1,021.
  • An applicant who is a citizen of either Turkey or Macedonia and is applying by post or online in the United Kingdom will be required to pay the sum of €1,222. However, if he or she is applying from outside the United Kingdom, he or she will be mandated to pay the sum of €966.
  • The last category is for those who will be bringing dependents with them. The applicants in this category will pay the same amount for each one of his or her dependents as those who are not citizens of Turkey and Macedonia.

How long can an applicant stay?

The maximum time a person who comes to the UK with such a visa as this can use is three years and four months. However, he or she can apply to extend his or her visa for another two years, after which he or she can apply for an Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK as long as he or she has lived up to five years.

What you can do

  • He or she can set up his or her business or take possession of one or more businesses already running.
  • He or she can work for his or her business as a self-employed applicant.
  • The applicant is permitted to bring dependents along with him or her.
