Adam Hoefel summarises the main qualifying requirements on Tier 1 investor applicants.

“To qualify for the Tier 1 investor route an applicant would need to be at least 18 years old. They would need to show that they have in their possession and control no less than £2million available to be invested in the UK.

“They need to show that the funds are transferable to the UK, if they’re not already held in a UK bank account and, depending on their individual circumstances, there’s often additional requirements with regards to evidencing the source of those funds and transferability.”
