Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa

More Group can support you with a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa application. A Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa allows international business people with between £50,000 and £200,000 of available funds to enter the UK to launch or take over a UK business. The funds must be held by a regulated institution, such as a bank or venture capital firm, and must be free to spend – not tied up in securities, shares, or similar arrangements.
