This page contains an overview what the Investor visa application entrails:

What is an Investor visa extension and do I need to extend?

An Investor extension is the process of extending the Investor visa which is initially issued for a period of three years (if issued in country) or three years and four months (if issued out of country).

The visa holder must demonstrate that they have met the requirements of the visa and submit documents evidencing this. Working closely with all relevant parties such as your accountants, wealth managers and other key personnel ensures that your documents match the exacting requirements of the Home Office. Upon successful granting of the visa the applicant obtains their extension which usually lasts an additional two years.

What do I need to prove?

An applicant is required to submit proof that their original investment of £2,000,000 (if the visa was granted after the 6th of November 2014) or £1,000,000 (if the visa was granted before the 6th of November 2014) has been maintained over the course of the three years. If the applicant applied before 6th November 2014 they are required to proof that 75% of the investment has been maintained.

If successful the applicant’s visa will be granted for a period of two years.

What is accelerated settlement and what are the requirements?

If the applicant intends to apply for accelerated settlement they must satisfy an additional Home Office requirement. Accelerated settlement allows the applicant to apply for Indefinite Leave to remain before the usual five year period. Please see timelines below. Note: only the main applicant is allowed to apply for accelerated settlement their dependents are required to complete the usual five year period.

Invest £2,000,000 apply after 5 years

Invest £5,000,000 apply after 3 years

Invest £10,000,000 apply after 2 years

Following successful granting of ILR the applicant is able to apply for nationality after a period of five years instead if the usual six.
