Tier 1 Investor Visa in the United Kingdom
The UK has a popular immigration programme know as the Tier 1 Investor Visa.
There are many reasons why the UK is a popular destination including its stable and democratic government. “Playing fair” is part of the nation’s cultural identity which manifests itself in its belief in the rule of law. The UK enjoys world class healthcare, education, culture and, last but not least, clean air. Furthermore, the UK’s tax system offers significant tax benefits for foreigners coming to live in the UK. Benefits of being a non-dom
The applicant is entitled to bring his or her spouse or civil law partner together with their minor children to live in the UK. There are no requirements to speak English. However there is a requirement to have disposable assets sufficient to invest over £2 million in regulated UK companies. There are also health and other compliance checks to be completed, such as setting up UK bank accounts. After the limited life of the visa has expired there are opportunities to apply to settle in the UK dependent on your ability to invest more money in investment funds. The timescale to attain indefinite leave to remain can be considerably reduced by making a larger investment.
