Tier 1 - High Net Worth Clients
The Tier 1 visa is for business people, investors & exceptionally talented individuals. These are the categories available:
- Tier 1 (Investor) – the UK’s golden visa; a category for the financially elite to settle in the UK by way of investment.
- Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) – for those wishing to establish or to take over an existing business in the UK. People can visit the UK as “prospective entrepreneurs” in order to secure agreements which may entitle them to remain as Tier 1 Entrepreneur migrants.
- Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) – a category for those wishing to develop a business idea immediately upon graduating, and who have been identified by UK universities as having developed world-class innovative or entrepreneurial skills, but who are not at the time of their graduation in a position to meet the full requirements of the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) route. Additionally graduates from outside the European Economic Area who have studied in UK educational institutions and who have been identified by their college as having ”world class innovative ideas” are entitled to switch from Tier 4 into Tier 1.
- Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) – for “exceptionally talented individuals in the fields of science, humanities, engineering and the arts”.
