Tier 1 Entrepreneur and Investor Visa
Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) is for non-European migrants who want to invest in the UK by setting up or taking over, and being actively involved in the running of, 1 or more businesses here.
If you have £200,000 to invest in a UK business (or £50,000 if you are a registered venture capital firm), can speak English and have enough money to support you and and your family whilst in the UK, then you may be entitled to a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa. You would be granted three years initially and expected to employ two people full-time in order to secure a two year extension in this category.
You would be entitled to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain after 3 years if you employed at least 10 UK residents in your business, and after 5 years in all other cases.
