Best Approach to avoid Refusal.


As one of the current visa routes into the UK, the Tier 1 entrepreneur visa route is heavily subscribed with those looking to move to the UK to settle and work. Even with all of the eligibility criteria satisfied there is still a high level of refusals. In this article we look at the possible scenarios behind refusals and how using immigration lawyers such as us can help to give you the best chance of success.

Genuine entrepreneur test

One of the requirements of the visa application is the genuine entrepreneur test, this test ascertains whether the person in front of the interviewer is, in all likelihood a genuine entrepreneur. The interview portion is by far the most important aspect where someone who isn't genuine is likely to come unstuck. The preparation for the interview needs to be spot on and this is where preparation with an immigration lawyer can help to ensure that your test is successful.

UKBA officials are trying to screen out the people who are not genuine, but sometimes they can get this wrong and innocent people are rejected. Getting the best advice possible on your side can only help to ensure that your application stands the best chance of success possible going forward.


Another common way to get turned down is by failure to produce the correct documentation. UKBA officials will look down on failure to provide the required documents as being a likely attempt to mislead them. Letting an immigration specialist prepare your application can help to eradicate these simple errors and get you the best chance of success.
