There’s a lot more to the United Kingdom than just bobbies, Big Ben and the Beatles. A country and land steeped in tradition, today the United Kingdom is home to one of Europe’s—and the world’s—leading economies.
Comprised of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom has a storied past. With evidence of human settlement dating as far back as 30,000 years, if the rolling green hills, craggy moors, and pleasant shorelines could talk they would weave tales of empires, conquest, and reform.
The capital of the United Kingdom is also its largest city—London. An economic, cultural, political, and educational hub, London is also the largest city in the European Union. Consisting of 32 boroughs, metropolitan London is home to more than 14 million residents. From entertainment to fashion to culture—London offers something for even the most diverse and eclectic tastes.
The main currency of the United Kingdom is the Pound Sterling (GBP), which is the world’s third-largest currency after the US Dollar and the Euro. The United Kingdom enjoys an incredibly high standard of living and offers many social programs.
The UK offers investors two visa-investment options, both of which allow investors to gain residency quickly—in as little as 6-9 months in some cases.
For “high-value migrants” the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa and Tier 1 Investor Visas help applicants gain residency in the UK. Applicants must complete and pass two government-approved English tests in order to fulfill their residency.
