UK Skilled Worker Business Visa

Residency by Investment

What is the Skilled Worker Business Visa?

The Skilled Worker Business Visa, while not officially designated as the “UK Skilled Worker Business Visa,” presents a legitimate avenue for individuals to establish a company in the UK and be sponsored as a skilled worker. This visa also serves as a pathway to secure permanent residency after five years. While there is no specific minimum investment requirement, individuals need to have adequate funds to support their business ventures in the UK. Additionally, the visa mandates the involvement of a UK resident to act as the director of the business and manage the legal responsibilities of the visa application. Moreover, it opens the door for entrepreneurs to hire other skilled foreign workers in the future, making it a comprehensive opportunity for those looking to build a business and establish a presence in the UK.

For whom is this intended?

Ideal for individuals enthusiastic about starting a business in the UK and:

  • Have the ambition to own and manage a business in the UK.
  • Desire full ownership, with the flexibility to hold up to 100% of shares.
  • Would rather not invest in any other UK-based company.
  • Do not intend to work for another UK company.
  • Have the goal of obtaining permanent residency.
