The Innovator Founder’s Route was opened in April 2023 and replaces the Innovator visa and Start Up routes. This route is for entrepreneurs intending to start a business in the UK. This write-up summarises the requirements for migrants applying for Entry Clearance (a visa) to enter the UK from abroad on the Innovator Founder route.
Employers intending to take on migrants lawfully in the UK or migrants from abroad must have a Sponsorship Licence to do so under the Point Based System (PBS). The PBS includes certain Immigration categories that require employers to obtain a Sponsorship Licence including Skilled Worker, Intra Company Transfer (ICT), Tier 5 and the Health and Care Visa.
Whether you are a business, company or charity intending to apply for a Sponsorship Licence or looking to manage the Sponsorship Management System, our Immigration lawyers are available to deal with any queries you might have.
