Westkin Investor Visa Seminar In Mayfair


Who should apply?

The demand for new investor visas is high amongst individuals wishing to reside in the United Kingdom and potentially undertake work or business as well.

When there are no obvious other immigration options this visa category allows wealthy individuals the opportunity to relocate to the United Kingdom.

As in all visa categories there exists a complex set of specific policy that applicants must adhere to in order to qualify and obtain their visa. Whilst in the UK the individual must comply with certain requirements in order to facilitate the extension of their visa allowing them to move towards obtaining settlement. We assist with both the initial application as well as with maintaining the visa requirements.

The Tier 1 Investor Visa requirements

Firstly the applicant must demonstrate to the UK authorities that they have the required funds and that are available to be transferred to the UK. The minimum amount required is £2 million and can be held within the UK or abroad in the form of a current portfolio or in a foreign currency.

The funds must be under the complete control of the applicant and cannot be from an investment fund or leveraged from other sources. Additionally, funds must be held in a regulated bank account and available from a source held in the UK.
In addition to the financial requirements, a thorough assessment of the individual’s criminal background will be undertaken and the applicant must proof source of funds.
