UK Start Up Visa

The UK Start Up visa has closed to new applicants. We can advise on visa options to start up your business in the UK.


Start up visa closure

From 13 April 2023, the Start up route will only be available to those who already hold a valid start-up endorsement. Those with endorsement have until 13 July 2023 to apply for their visa under this route. 

Individuals looking to start a business in the UK should now look at the new Innovator Founder route

Existing Start up visa-holders may be able to switch to the innovator founder route if they qualify.
