Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa

If you are looking to start a business in the UK it is important to seek legal advice to understand the migration options open to you. This is to ensure your case is effectively represented to the authorities and to avoid any delays in your application.

Oracle Solicitors regularly deal with the successful applications for Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visas and understand the importance to the UK economy for entrepreneurs to set up or invest here.

What is a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa?

Through the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, the UK is actively supporting non-EEA nationals to consider entrepreneurial opportunities within the UK.

A Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa will allow you to set up or take over the running of one business or more. You can work for your own business as a self-employed individual, provided the work meets the criteria for being self-employed. You can also bring family members and dependents with you.
