Business & investment Visas
The UK is a popular destination for business and commerce. It has one of the world’s largest economies, a fair and efficient legal system, world-renowned schools and universities, and a good standard of living and quality of life.
UK business and investment visas come in different types, appropriate for different situations. The Start-Up visa and Innovator visa are designed for entrepreneurs who want to set up and run a business in the UK, whereas the Representative of Overseas Business visa enables a migrant to run a business in the UK on behalf of their overseas employer.
The Tier 1 Investor visa, on the other hand, is a pure investment visa, and the migrant does not have to carry out any work unless they want to.
These visas offer the route to eventual settlement and potentially British citizenship. But some other visa types – Prospective Entrepreneur Visitor visa and Business Visitor visa – only confer limited leave for specific purposes.
