The start up visa category is for people seeking to establish a business in the UK for the first time. The start up visa category has replaced Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa category. Applicants are expected to have an innovative, viable and scalable business idea which has been assessed and supported by an approved endorsing body. In all cases applicants must provide a letter of endorsement from a Home Office approved endorsing body.

As a result of successful application as a start up migrant, the applicant will be granted leave to remain for 2 years and does not lead directly to settlement (ILR) in the UK, but applicants may progress into the innovator visa category which does lead to ILR after 3 years.

Eligibility Criteria

All applicants must meet the requirements for:

  • English language
  • Maintenance funds
  • Endorsement
  • Age (18+)

Start-up teams

Multiple Start-up migrants can apply for endorsement to be co-directors of the same company. However, these are not linked as “team” applications and each applicant must receive their own individual endorsement from an approved endorsing body.
