Our client, a successful Indian businessman, approached us with the intention to relocate to the UK with his family. He had successfully invested in a number of international companies around the world; however, he now wished to settle in the UK. He was drawn to the UK as he had family in the UK, as well as due to the fact that the UK had a very good education system which he felt his children could benefit from.
Our client had initially inherited funds from his parents and had made key investments in real estate in India, Europe and the US. He was now looking to invest in a safe economy like the UK.
Our immigration team first assisted our client by advising on what types of documents are needed for Investor visa applications. We advised our client on how he could obtain the documents needed to satisfy the eligibility requirements; however, our client was unsure as to what he could invest in.
Through our network, we connected our client with wealth management companies who advised our client on investment opportunities in the UK which qualified under the Tier 1 Investor visa category. Following a presentation with a number of wealth management companies, our client was happy to proceed with the investment opportunity offered.
After thoroughly reviewing the documents, we noted that some documents were not compliant with what the Home Office required and advised our client of this. He was able to have the documents amended, after which we were able to complete the application preparation. We completed the online application forms for our client and his family members. We then prepared detailed legal representations to accompany the application and the application process was completed.
After a wait of approximately two weeks, our client was notified that his application for a Tier 1 Investor visa was successful. Our client was very happy with the decision and commented that our vast network of connections was one of the key reasons why he instructed us on this application. Our client was subsequently put in touch with our relocation team, which actively helped both him and his family to settle in the UK.
