Get In Touch


Our client held a Tier 1 Graduate Entrepreneur visa for two years and is looking to switch into the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa.

He currently has £50,000 to invest in his business. The challenge with this case was that he had no evidence of trading on his current leave as a Tier 1 Graduate entrepreneur owing to some changes in circumstances.

Our Point Of View

At the first instances, our immigration solicitors did not have enough information. We, however, had to do a lot more in terms of digging to get the full state of things. With the full picture in mind, we were able to give a legal explanation to the Home Office why our client had not started trading as well as other issues with the business set-up.

We also needed to evidence that the client has the required £50,000 for investment into his business for a period of 90 days.

We still needed a business plan in line with the new genuine entrepreneur test. We had to make sure that the business plan was in line with the Home Office requirements. We needed to show that he has a viable business idea which will need to be put into a business plan to be presented to the decision-maker. We ensure that it showed that in the coming years he would meet the requirements of the immigration rules for an extension.

Our client met the English language requirement as a result of studying in a UK higher institution.

This application ended up becoming the quickest Tier 1 entrepreneur application for 3 months from writing this piece.

"Anna Foley was the lawyer helping my partner obtain an EEA EFM visa. She was outstanding. Handling the case with constant correspondence over a lengthy, lockdown delayed 7-month application process. Her expert advice guided us successfully through some difficult times as a result of COVID-19. Some of the best service I have received for any service ever! Often replying to emails late at night, offering to send additional correspondence to the home office and going above and beyond in handling our case! Well done and thank you Reiss Edwards and thank you Anna!!".
