Discover your
innovation

Having an original business idea is absolutely vital to a successful Innovator visa application.

All types of business are possible — none are excluded. What matters is innovation, viability and the ability to scale.

Visa Kings Global have valuable expertise in this area.

Our team has a proven track record and through years of experience working in the start-up sector, we have directly helped to raise millions of pounds for new UK businesses.

Very few companies in the immigration field have experience in raising funds for young companies in the sub £250,000 sector to assist British Citizen Entrepreneurs. This competency is now essential when proposing a viable business — the most important aspect of any Innovator visa.

Visa Kings Global apply our significant experience of preparing and presenting innovative business plans to ensure our clients have the greatest chances of success under the Innovator visa.

Don't delay

Innovator visas depend on approval from a Government-approved Endorsing Body.

Unlike many immigration advisors we can present your business to Endorsing Bodies which are accepting applications.

Endorsing bodies have a strict approval quota which limits the cases we can accept.

About the
Innovator visa

The Innovator visa is the replacement for the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) category. It is for the more experienced, proven business entrepreneur who wishes to establish a viable business in the UK with real prospects of growth.

What are the key criteria to obtain an Innovator visa?

  • An original business plan demonstrating innovation
  • Support from an Endorsing Body
  • Business investment from just £50,000
  • An acceptable level of English
  • Adequate maintenance funds (unless exempted)

How long can you stay in the UK?

The duration of your entry clearance is three years. After that you can apply for ILR (settlement) in the UK. There are various conditions to meet. Visa Kings Global can guide you on the best way to meet these conditions.

Support from the Endorsing Body

This is absolutely most vital to the success of your application. It is there to make sure you will bring benefits to the UK economy.

We have worked for six years in the start-up and new business sector as our specialism. We have helped to raise millions of pounds for innovator companies and have dealt with venture capitalists and Fund Managers. We understand what they are looking for and we are rare in the immigration field in having that specialised knowledge.
