Adam Hoefel shares pointers on making a successful Tier 1 entrepreneur visa.

“Common pitfalls we find with the Tier 1 entrepreneur visa we find tend to revolve around two different issues.

“Problems with the documentary evidence, for example bank letters or accountants letters that aren’t in the correct format, or increasingly issues with credibility with regard to the business plan and the applicant themselves.

“So it’s really important from the outset that you’re advising your bankers and accountants that we require evidence in a specific format that confirms necessary details, but also that the business plan is well drafted and that you’re very familiar with the contents of the business plan and that you will be able to answer any questions that the entry clearance officer may have, confidently.”
