TIER 1 INVESTOR VISA

The Tier 1 (Investor) visa is a route for individuals with access to at least £2,000,000 to invest in the UK, and is only applicable for applicants from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland. The initial visa is granted for 3 years and 4 months (3 years if processed in the UK). After this time, applicants can apply for a 2 year extension provided they meet the eligibility criteria. In most cases, to become UK resident, you would need to speak at least basic English, demonstrate your education and experience and meet other criteria of UK immigration authorities. However, applicants for a Tier 1 Investor Visa are an exception to this rule.
