The New Start up and Innovator Visas

The Start-up Visa

The start-up visa is for those seeking to establish a business in the UK for the first time. Applicants will have an innovative, viable and scalable business idea which is supported by an endorsing body. The start-up visa is an expanded version of the Tier 1 graduate entrepreneur visa, which allowed universities to endorse international students.

The Innovator Visa

The Innovator visa is for more experienced business people seeking to establish a business in the UK. Applicants will have an innovative, viable, and scalable business idea that is supported by an endorsing body. With some exceptions, applicants will also have funding to invest in their business.

 

Under both categories, individuals will need to obtain an endorsement from a relevant body.  These bodies will include UK education institutions that meet specific requirements and organizations with a proven track record of support UK entrepreneurs.  Such bodies will need to be approved by the Home Office.

We can provide the complete solution to clients’ requests before, during and after visa applications.
