The UK Investor Visa Programme seeks to attract foreign individuals who will be entitled to obtain the Investor Visa in a period of approximately 3-6 months upon investing £2 million in UK government bonds.
Initial Visa (3 year clearance investor visa). This stage requires an investment for 5 years in either UK government bonds, share capital or loan capital in active trading, or UK registered companies.
Renewal after 3 years of obtaining residency (2 year visa extension application)
Obtaining permanent residency after 5 years (indefinite leave to remain)
Note: The government announced new rules which provide the ability to achieve settlement ILR (permanent residence) more quickly in the UK through an accelerated route. Get additional details by downloading the programme guideline below.
