The business idea must also be viable, such that it is deemed to have potential for fairly quick growth.

Start – Up Visas and like Innovator Visas applications have an Endorsement Stage as well as an Immigration Application Stage.

One important difference between the Start – Up Visa and the Innovator Visa is that there is no requirement to provide evidence that an applicant has £50,000 to invest when making an application.

Start – Up Visas can be granted for a maximum period of two years and do not lead to Settlement or Indefinite Leave to Remain.

If you intend to remain in the UK after the expiration of a Start – Up Visa, you must switch into another Immigration category before your Start – Up Visa comes to an end. If you require any assistance with a Start – Up Visa, please contact our Immigration Department.
