It was crisis time and you ladies stepped up to the plate
Just a quick note to thank you for helping out! It was crisis time and you ladies stepped up to the plate (baseball term). I appreciate your help and apologies for all the phone calls.Professional Golfer
Vaida has done a wonderful job and has been very responsive with the daily crises of submitting our Tier 1 application. She has been extremely patient with us as well so we are very grateful to both Rahul and Vaida. Honestly we were shocked but overjoyed that the visa was approved so readily and without an interview or additional documentation. We wish you the best and thank you so much for your help and support.Kevin and Jane
Happy to recommend
A good friend had recommended Amisha from Hudson McKenzie. I needed help with my application for British Citizenship and was looking for a competent lawyer to help with the process. I was not disappointed: Amisha and her colleague Vaida were very competent and personable at the same time. Very approachable and friendly and happy to help, advise and reassure all the way through the process. Thank you very much, both of you, you made a stressful time just that bit easier. Happy to recommend!Gabriella Z

Wholehearted cooperation and transparency
"I am writing this review overjoyed and filled with happiness and gratitude. I take this opportunity to thank you Rahul, for your whole hearted cooperation and transparency kept by you all the time. Frankly speaking, when I approached Rahul on 21-May-2012, I was in a very tough situation. My company had applied for Sponsorship license which was still pending and I was about to finish my PSW visa by June 15th. I was really in a dilemma whether I will get my visa or not, but by God’s grace and by the sincere effort by Rahul in updating all the documents needed we have been finally rewarded.I really liked your approach all throughout the process and I assure you that I will recommend all my friends and relatives who are looking for immigration help in UK to your firm. My special wishes to all your team for the support."Kalyan Chakravarthy
Attention to Detail and Responsiveness
We have been very pleased with their advice, attention to detail and responsiveness which has sped us through the immigration process in a very short time frame. If you are thinking “why do I need to pay someone else to help me through the process” I can only say that without Rahul’s support and advice throughout, we would have been a lot more stressed and possibly would have fallen at several hurdles along the way. We are both used to dealing with forms and bureaucracy but we found ourselves going round in circles at times trying to work out the UKBA paperwork. Whenever we had a query, Rahul was always able to e-mail us back straight away with the advice we needed. His experience enables him to cut through all the reams of guidance notes, forms and lists of requirements which eases the path considerably. Rahul takes a keen interest in his clients and will always do his best to get a positive and swift outcome. We are really pleased with the service we received and would recommend Hudson McKenzie to anyone looking for Immigration Lawyers.Daryl Pollock
We approached Hudson McKenzie to seek assistance in relation to our spouse application. They have been extremely courteous and have always been prompt in answering our calls. Our application was approved within a very short time scale- thanks to the team at Hudson McKenzie who made this possible. We are happy to recommend them to everyone we know.Gary Bates
Tier 1 Investor Visa
Tier 1 Investor Visa Lawyers
Our team of Tier 1 UK Investor Visa Lawyers specialise in helping high net worth (HNW) and ultra high net worth (UHNW) foreign nationals to successfully invest in the UK.
This type of visa is available for HNW and UHNW individuals with at least £2 million to invest in the UK. In order for your application to be successful you must meet certain criteria set out by the UKVI.
Our goal is to provide you with the full range of commercial law support and connect you with our exceptional network of business contacts to help you get established faster. You get a business partner rather than simply a form-filler.
Criteria for Success
This option is different to the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa and the big advantage is that there is no requirement to pass an English language test. It can also lead to Permanent Residence if you have remained in the UK for at least 180 days per year.
- £2 million investment over a 5 year term – gives you the opportunity to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) in the UK.
- £5 million investment over a 3 year term allows you to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after three years.
- £10 million investment over a 2 year term allows you to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after three years.
Access to at least £2m+
You will also need to demonstrate that you either have £2,000,000 of legally acquired funds. The funds need to be held in a reputable institution and freely transferable to the UK. Funds can either be cash or qualifying investments. You will be required to provide proof of funds.
Investing in the UK
You must invest at least £2m within 3 months of being granted a Tier 1 Investor Visa.
The investment can be in:
- Shares in active and trading UK companies (excluding property investment companies).
- Bonds issued by the UK government.
- Bonds issued by active and trading UK companies (as long as they are not property investment companies).
- Loans made to active and trading UK companies (excluding property investment companies).
A UK Tier 1 Investors visa is initially approved for a period of 3 years. Subsequently, the visa may be extended for a further 2 years. The same minimum criteria applies as at the time of the original application.
There are various documents required to prove origin of funds, personal identity and relationship to dependents. Our specialist Tier 1 Investor Visa Lawyers will explain all of this when we process your application.
The UKVI allows dependants to join you in the United Kingdom. A dependent is categorized as wife, husband, civil partner, same-sex partner, unmarried partner or a child under the age of 18 years. Dependent children under the age of 18 can attend school in the UK.
The dependent spouse of an investor can work or engage in any lawful business.
