Update on the Tier 1 (Investor) Visa

January 28, 2022

The Tier 1 (Investor) Visa gave high net worth individuals the opportunity to emigrate to the UK, provided they had a minimum amount of money to invest.  

From 4:00pm on 17 February 2022, the Tier 1 (Investor) Migrant route is closed to all new initial applications for entry clearance or leave to remain amid growing national security concerns. This includes no longer being able to switch into this route if you are already in the UK on a different type of visa.  

If you have already have a Tier 1 (Investor) Visa, you can still apply to extend or renew your visa, provided the application is made before 17 February 2026. Applications for settlement (indefinite leave to remain) must be made before 17 February 2028. Please get in touch for assistance.
