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.
Those in this category should have become registered directors or self –employed persons already.
Tier 1 (Entrepreneurs) Migrants should also have invested at least £200,000 or £50,000, depending on the basis of their initial immigration application. They should also have created two full time jobs, although there may be some exceptions where their businesses were affected by the Covid – 19 pandemic.
Our Immigration department is well placed to deal with all your Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) Migrant related matters. If you need to apply for an extension, make a related application for your dependants or apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain, please contact us.
