Entrepreneur Visa

The entrepreneur visitor visa is a route for potential Tier 1 Entrepreneurs to enter the UK for the purpose of seeing whether or not the conditions are right for their business idea. The Entrepreneur category of the Tier 1 allows applicants to invest in the UK economy by starting or assuming control of a business. Potential applicants must also be involved in the day-to-day running of the company or business.

Although the visa holder is not permitted to work in the UK, they are allowed to carry out business research and to enter into initial negotiations about potential work space, suppliers, distributors etc.

Once happy with the initial progress of the business start-up, applicants may be eligible to apply for the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa with an investment amount of £50,000 or £200,000, depending on their circumstances.
