Our Investor Visa Programme at Walker Crips

The Tier 1 (Investor) Visa programme allows individuals to obtain permanent residency via investment in the UK.

What is an Investor Visa?

The United Kingdom offers the opportunity to apply for a Tier 1 (Investor) Visa, which can lead to British Citizenship, for those who want to make a substantial financial investment in the UK. The minimum qualifying investment is £2,000,000. Under current criteria, applicants are required to invest the funds, within the required time frame of the Visa being granted, into qualifying instruments and maintain them for a set period of time.

Why use an Investor Visa?

At Walker Crips, we offer our Tier 1 (Investor) Visa Portfolio Service, whereby you can take advantage of our skills, experience and knowledge; a capability focused on creating sustainable growth for your investment, within the visa requirements.

This can be either an Advisory or Discretionary service and depends on how involved you wish to be in the management of your Tier 1 portfolio.

Our dedicated Investment Managers at Walker Crips have a wealth of Tier 1 investment experience and offer a dedicated approach to our Investor Immigration Programme, providing clients with full support and assistance when they apply for investment immigration and following their settlement in the UK.

Our Tier 1 Investor Visa team is led by Head of Asia Coverage Miranda Hui, who works alongside Investment Directors Mark Entwistle, Billy Newton, Steven Moss and Andrew Powell.
