About this service

Our Investor Services

The current Tier 1 (Investor) route requires applicants to have £2,000,000 and must demonstrate they have held these funds for around two years. Under a previous iteration of the Immigration Rules, a person was required to hold only £1,000,000 or in some circumstances, could take a loan of £1,000,000 and show £2,000,000 in assets.

Clients benefit from a top class service at a fixed fee, meaning that all of our prices are transparent and upfront, helping your company budget accordingly for the legal fees.

Accelerated route to settlement. After 5 years, applicants can apply for settlement.

Allows you to bring dependents under the age of 18, and spouse or partner to the UK.

Dependents under the age of 18 entitled to free UK education.

I was pleased to work with Westkin, who helped me to get a Tier 1 Investor visa, which is exceptionally hard to get accepted for, in just one month. The business plan and guidance for the interview was of immense importance, and the professionalism was top notch. I would definitely recommend Westkin to everyone as well as thank them for their hard work.
