Adam Hoefel provides a brief overview of the Tier 1 investor visa category.

“The Tier 1 investor visa is an immigration category that is designed to encourage inward investment to the UK.

“It’s a fantastic category in the sense that it’s very flexible so once you have the visa you’re able to engage in pretty much any activity that you like in the UK. You can work, you can engage in business, you can study and after five years you qualify for indefinite leave to remain and then you can go on to qualify for British citizenship.

“To qualify you need to have at least £2million available to invest in certain prescribed investments.”
