Tier 1 Investor Visa

UK Immigration under the Points Based System

Apply for a UK Investor Visa (Tier 1)

Businesses thrive in the UK and investors from all around the world consider the UK one of the best places to invest their funds in for rapid and continuous growth. The UK Investor visa (Tier 1)  is an investment visa and not really a working visa, but Tier 1 Investors can work if they want to.

For the initial application the Tier 1 Investor visa applicant needs to show that they have at least £2 million to invest which is under your control. You also need to show that you hold a UK bank account.

After you have acquired the initial visa the Tier 1 Investor visa applicant must subsequently show that they have invested the funds into a UK-registered company (ies) either by way of loan capital or share capital.

If you invest £2 million you can potentially acquire settlement in five years; if you invest £5 million you can potentially acquire it in three years; and if you invest £10 million you can potentially acquire it in two years.

The visa is initially granted for three years or three years and a bit, so an extension visa application may or may not be necessary, depending on the length of the route.

Unlike many other types of visa, there is no English language requirement until the applicant reaches the settlement stage.

Dependants can apply for visas along with the main Tier 1 visa applicant.

Applicants can apply from outside the UK or, if they hold appropriate immigration leave, from within the UK.

Requirements for Tier 1 Investor Visa

The applicant must produce the right documents to show that they meet the requirements for the Tier 1 Investor visa for the UK some of them are shown below:

  • Be 18 or over 
  • Hold the right sort of bank account
  • Genuinely hold sufficient funds under their control
  • Where relevant, that the funds have been invested appropriately in the UK
  • Criminal record certificate is required

The earliest you can apply for a Tier 1 Investor visa is 3 months before you travel. The processing time for the visa is 3 weeks.

Please note this visa does not have English language requirement to be met.

    I went to GSN for help on trying to get my fiancee from the united states to move here. They were very helpful throughout the entire process, initially answering some questions free of charge, then making the whole process very clear to us both during a paid consultation. We eventually came back to them to setup a case and the entire process was very professional with regular and supportive communication; Each step of what we needed to do and what information was needed next was well laid out and explained, with shared google drive folders to collaborate with.

    Unfortunately due to covid, the prospect of my fiancee moving here fell through and, partially in due to that, as did the relationship. GSN were kind enough to grant me a partial refund on the case, which they admit is not the regular procedure but they were understanding of the situation. I would have preferred to have completed using their services, but it was a pleasure to work with them for the time that I did.

    I recommend them especially for their communication and ability to help explain the entire immigration process in a way that's understandable even if you have no prior knowledge.

    Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value I used GSN Immigration to extend Spouse Visa for Nirmaya Thapa Magar. I am her uncle and helping her and her father Inlaw Mr Prem Bahadur Pun. We were finding difficult as to what kind of document/papers to present for the application let alone the appropriate application form because of the complication of status of applicant we were worried. When I contacted Mrs Rahila and explained in details she gave me lots of assurances that she can handle this case. This was big relief to us. Mrs Rahila and Mr ZShah were very polite and professional who helped us with all paperworks and fill up application form with strong recommendations. As result Spouse Visa for Nirmaya was successful! Mrs Rahila gave further help/advise for PPI application for husband of Nirmaya Mr Bishal. I would definitely recommend GSN Immigration to my friends and relatives.

    GSN team assisted me in applying spouse visa from outside uk.
    pleased with there service and level of support i received. had a successful result on the application. Initially, I enquired to most of the solicitors around Harrow-On-The-Hill station. Unlike others, GSN team listened to my situation and gave me confidence by clarifying and providing a clear legal advise.
    The proactive GSN team ensured to submit the application from the eyes of ukvi case worker which reduces the hurdles for immigration team, and increases turn-around time of the application decision. I strongly recommend to others, and support small and local business.

    They did it again 6 months ago Ms. Liang and Mr. Shah helped me extend my tier 2 visa.I was really impressed by their professional service hence I went back for my ILR application. Despite the confusing time due to the virus they handled my case very well and helped me get my ILR successfully. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for immigration advice and I will definitely go back to them myself.

    This outfit is first class - I would even say 'Gold Standard'. They are not cheap but are GREAT value for money because they CARE. Rahila is supported by a very bright and helpful guy 'Shah' who is ALWAYS available. Never do I find 'this is the O2 answering service' or 'your call is important to us'. There is ALWAYS someone of flesh and blood and HUMANITY at the other end of the line.

    Trying to do Visas ONLINE is like trying to get a job ONLINE. A route to madness. Give this team a chance. They'll tell it like it is. And they will get you there!

    Excellent and speedy service from Ms X Liang GSN immigration Ltd it was the best decision ever. I needed a spouse’s visa for my wife, which can be a lengthy process which takes a lot of time and effort. I am so happy that I decided to go with GSN Immigration Ltd, thanks to Ms X Liang’s attention to detail and in-deep scrutiny in checking the documentation provided, the process was very easy and straightforward. The communication was clear and we were helped to understand each stage of process. In the end, a swift decision was made in favour of my wife’s Spouse visa. I will certainly recommend and use their professional services again in the future.
