Start Up Visa

What is a UK Start Up Visa?

The Start Up Visa is designed for Applicants who are looking to establish a new business for the first time. The Applicant will require an Endorsement from a selected Endorsing Body as well as being able to demonstrate that they have the necessary funds to maintain themselves in the UK. The individual will need to demonstrate that they have a command of the English Language. Crucially, there is no need to demonstrate funding for the business. The Visa will be valid for two years however, the Visa cannot be extended. The individual can switch to the Innovator Visa subject to meeting the criteria for that visa.

What are the main Requirements for a UK Innovator Visa?

Each case is decided on its own merits and we would therefore advise for any individual considering this visa route to the UK to book a Consultation with our Solicitors to obtain advice specific to your particular needs.

However, we have briefly outlined the main requirements an Applicant will need to satisfy in order to obtain a visa to enter and subsequently reside in the UK.

The individual must demonstrate that they have at least personal savings of £945.00 for a consecutive period of 90 days.

The individual must further demonstrate that they have a good grasp of the English Language.
