QUALIFICATIONS FOR UK INVESTOR VISA
Offered through our joint venture with a U.K.-authorized financial institution, the U.K. Immigrant Investor Program is a three-tiered system enabling those who invest at a higher level to be granted residency sooner. To qualify for UK residency by investment, applicants must first meet the following criteria:
- Ability to maintain and accommodate oneself and any dependents without employment (other than running a business or self-employment)
- Residence in the UK. Investors must spend 50 per cent of their time in the UK (minimum) or approximately 6 out of 12 months in a year to maintain their residence visa status
Aside from these qualifications, applicant investors are required to invest at least 75 per cent of the required investment amount in the UK via the following:
- Certified UK government bonds
- Share capital in active and trading UK companies
- Loan capital in actives and trading UK companies
The remaining 25 per cent of the investment must be further invested in the UK via qualified assets or deposit in a regulated financial institution. One thing to keep in mind: the higher the investment, the faster the applicant investor will acquire their stay for settlement.
