UKBA are set to make changes to the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) route. Anyone applying for this visa route should note the following;
- A ‘genuine entrepreneur test’ will now be part of the application process, giving UKBA caseworkers the ability to test suspicious applicants.
- The necessary minimum funds needed for a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) application will now need to be held or invested in the business on an ongoing basis, rather than just at the time of the application.
UKBA report these changes have been made to help target abuse of the application system.
These changes highlight the importance of understanding the application process fully before submission.
If you are thinking of making a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) application to UKBA and would like assistance with your application, we can manage this process for you.
