Schedule a free consultation with one of our advisors to assess your eligibility for your programme and collect the necessary documents for pre-approval.
Once the process has been initiated our team will issue a document checklist and immediately start the business plan preparation.
When the Business plan is complete this will be submitted to a UK Government Endorsement body for approval who will issue an approval letter.
Once the case file is completed, the application will be submitted to the UK Home Office for visa approval.
The visa will grant you 2 years of residency after you can switch to an alternative Visa category.
The same as above, in order to grant your approval, the endorsement body is looking at 4 key parts of your proposal – innovation, sustainability, scalability and viability and of course your CV to prove you are capable of making your proposed business a success.
The Start-up Visa is only a 2-year visa and you are unable to extend it. After 2-years you would need to switch to an Innovator Visa, Tier 2 Work Visa or leave the UK.
The processing time is typically around 6-months.
No funds are required to be invested, however, you would still need to show you do have available funds to support your living costs in the UK.
There are currently around 59 UK endorsement bodies currently spanning a number of different industries. Choosing an endorsement body is something we will help guide clients with as part of our service.
Similar to the Innovator Visa, in order to grant your approval, the endorsement body is looking at 4 key parts of your proposal – innovation, sustainability, scalability and viability and of course your CV to prove you are capable of making your proposed business a success.
The Start-up Visa is best suited to fresh graduates, with a great business idea but no funds available to support it themselves. It's also a great option for business men looking to trail their business in the UK market.
