UK Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa – Fixed Fee – Free initial telephone consultation


If you want to come to the UK to be involved in business activity, by setting up, taking over or running a business, you may be eligible to apply for a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa.

Proving your application is genuine


The immigration authorities now require you to show that your business intentions are genuine. To do this you will have to show them evidence of market research and in-depth business plans. Our specialist fee earners will help you compile the right documentation to show that you meet this requirement.



In order to meet the funds requirement for this visa you will need to show that you have at least £200,000 available. If you can show that your funds are from a venture capitalist firm that is regulated by the Financial Services Authority then a minimum of sum of only £50,000 will be required.

English language and Maintenance requirements


To meet the requirements for this visa, you will need to demonstrate that you have the appropriate funds for your business activity and to support yourself, and that you meet the English language requirement.
