  • A dependent aged over 18? If they intend to study in the UK, they can obtain Immigration status as a student while their parents apply for the Investor Visa. Otherwise you will need to transfer your assets to your child’s name and appoint them as the main applicant too.

Check the Requirements

You must prove that you:

  • have at least £2 million of your own money held in a regulated financial institution and disposable in the UK;
  • have opened an account with a UK regulated bank for the purposes of investing at least £2 million in the UK.

(Note: There are no English language or maintenance requirements for Investors)

What about the future?

  • The initial Investor Visa will give you two (through the accelerated settlement route) or three years in the UK as a Legal Resident.
  • If, during those initial three years, you can show you have met certain criteria, you can then apply for a further two-year Extension Visa.
  • Following these five years, you will have the option of applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain (permanent residency) in the UK. Link to this
  • You may qualify for Indefinite Leave to Remain after a two or three year period under this visa if you meet the requirements for the accelerated route to settlement
