The start-up visa route for entrepreneurs

If you are an entrepreneur keen to set up an innovative business in the UK, the start-up visa may be your route to success. The business immigration team can help with:

  • assessing if the start-up visa is your best visa route
  • advising on whether your business plan is likely to secure endorsement from an endorsing body at stage one of the application process
  • guidance on the eligibility criteria for the second stage of the start-up visa application process
  • switching from the start-up to the innovator visa as a route to UK settlement
