Tier 1 Investor visas are applicable for high net-worth individuals who are making a substantial financial investment in the UK.

    • Tier 2: Skilled Migrants: Skilled workers can apply to enter, or remain, in the UK subject to receiving a job offer from a licensed sponsor.

Upon receiving a job offer, you will then need to pass the points-based assessment and be in receipt of a valid certificate of sponsorship.
