INVESTOR IMMIGRATION VISA
The UK is a diverse and multicultural society with exceptional global links. Although it is leaving the EU after more than four decades of membership, there’s no reason to believe that the UK’s influence in the world will wane. Certainly, the nation’s entrepreneurial spirit and high standards of education and governance are set to stay as the nation looks towards a broad-based, global future. An Investor Visa is usually granted within three weeks of application, and is the first step towards UK Permanent Residence and, ultimately, UK citizenship. The UK Investor Visa entitles you to passport-free travel throughout the Common Travel Area (CTA) of the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
