UK Tier 1 Visa: Still Accessible and Not Discontinued

January 2019, 07
EMAIL  Print A+

On 6 Dec 2018, without notification, the Home Office incorrectly declared the suspension of the scheme Tier 1 investor visa. However, the Home Office’s statement was somewhat early as other departments of the government denied suspending of the ‘golden visa.’  This UK Tier 1 visa has not been discontinued.

MoreVisas Comment:

The scheme of Tier 1 Investor visa is only possible for those with the investment of £2 million.  So very fewer individuals can manage this.  Even if you are able to afford to come below this visa category of UK, it may be worth holding different visa categories such as Tier 1 (entrepreneur) or Tier 2 visa.

One significant modification that will be of concern to several Tier 1 visa and Tier 2 visa candidates and organizations with a Tier 2 sponsor license, and those in several other visa categories of UK, is the doubling of the Health Surcharge for Immigration from £200 to £400 per year from 8 Jan 2019.

Tier 1 Investor Visa Reforms

The recent update from the Home Office of UK, a written statement from Caroline Nokes, Immigration Minister, is that Tier 1 investor visa changes will be launched in the 2019 spring.

Following the sudden declaration on 6 Dec, the Home Office has continued tight-lipped over the failure and has frequently ignored demands for clarification over the Tier 1 investor visa scheme status.

The ILPA ( Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association) condemned the Home Office for running recklessly, saying: While it is great news for candidates that the visa has not been discontinued, the UK Home Office’s approach of this has been Careless, to tell the least.

It is essential to the UK’s immigration system integrity that if any modifications made to important immigration routes then it should be done formally and with enough notice, the I.L.P.A. added.
