The Ankara Agreement is an agreement that was made a long time ago between Turkey and the EU. It gives special immigration rights to Turkish nationals in both employment and in running a business.
When the UK joined the EU in 1973 the Ankara Agreement became effective in the UK. Turkish people are able to come to the UK or switch in the UK and acquire an Ankara Agreement businessperson visa, which enables them to set up and run a business or join an already-existing business.
The rules for this are relatively simple, and certainly a lot simpler than the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa, which is in any case now closed to new entrants. Unlike the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa there is no specific figure for investment into the business, but the amount held by the applicant must be appropriate for that type of business, whatever it is.
But as the UK looks set to leave the EU some time next year then presumably the Ankara Agreement will finish in the UK. So if you are thinking about applying you may need to seize the opportunity soon.
The rules allow any type of business, as long as it is realistic and viable. You should therefore get a good business plan prepared in support of the application. Dependants are allowed and there is no English language requirement.
After five years’ leave in this category it might be possible to acquire settlement.
Only Turkish nationals are able to apply for this visa, although their dependants can be of any nationality.
At Get UK Visa we can give you detailed advice about this visa route.

I would highly recommend Get UK Visa. The staff and owner are professional, helpful and most important things are honest. To be honest I never EVER seen someone to give you great advice on the phone without asking for consulting fee. Guys, I really appreciate that.
Thank for all support to get my visa resident and big hug for Adonis who phone me form Uk to give all direction On weekend .. Super recommend 5* thank you all from Get Uk visa
First of all we want to thank everyone at GET UK VISA for everything they have done. Mr Kouros Adonis and Mr Oliver Westmoreland along with Mr Teimoory, Manija Haschemi and Maryam Pourseyedi are the most amazing, caring, professional, knowledgeable, honest and determined team I have ever encountered. I only wish and hope everyone in helping individuals, couples and families with immigration matters would be as incredible as they are. It is an honour to be lucky enough to have met each one of them and to be able to share our experience with everyone. Without them our dear friends child would not have survived in our birth country and now father and son would never have been able to be reunited. That dream has become a reality and now they are able to be together once again. Many thanks, Ms S. Mansouri
