How do I get ILR early?

How to get ILR Early?

On this page we will briefly outline the requirements as set out by the UKVI that allow a migration on a Tier 1 Visa to be able to apply for early indefinite leave to remain. Whilst this page outlines the basic requirement needed for early ILR we would always recommend that you contact a lawyer if you have any questions relating to the application process and requirements that the UKVI have set out.

The Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa relates to those who are interested in running or setting up a business within the United Kingdom. For more information on the specific requirements that are outlayed by the UKVI please click here.

In regards to extending the Entrepreneur visa, the UKVI do not require the business that has been set up to be profitable, in order for the extension to be granted. The granting of the visa extension is not related to the profitability of the business that has been invested in and, so long as the funds are invested and the correct number of employees are employed, the extension will be granted. There are, of course, other requirements and factors that dictate the granting of a Tier 1 Visa extension for more information contact Westkin Associates today.

In addition to visa extensions, and if the business performs exceptionally well, the applicant may be legible to apply for early ILR and the UKVI will grant Indefinite Leave to Remain early. Usually, the UKVI grant Indefinite Leave to remain at 5 years, however, as previously stated if the business is success and meets a variety of requirements early ILR will be granted at 3 years. This is called accelerated settlement. In order for this to be achieved, the business must turn over 5 million pounds within 3 years or alternatively, employ 10 additional persons.

The way the UKVI measure this is complex. Detailed legal advice should be sought on how this works and the very specific evidence required to achieve this. Westkin Associates have a dedicated team of Tier 1 lawyers who can assist you with every step of your tier 1 visa application. We provide complete client care and work to exacting standards meaning that intructing Westkin Assocaites as your lawyers means that your visa stands the highest chance of being granted.
