J.K. Case Study 2: Successful Uk Start Up Visa Application

What is the UK Startup Visa?

The UK Start Up Visa is a new immigration route for entrepreneurs. It was launched in March 2019 to allow foreign nationals outside of the EEA (European Economic Area) to develop their new business in the United Kingdom. This new immigration route replaced the old tier 1 graduate entrepreneur visa. Now even the non-graduate applicants can enter the country and grow their business without having any initial funding. However, according to the Home Office, the new business idea must be innovative, scalable, viable, and should also be approved by an endorsing body.

Who is Eligible for the UK Start Up Visa?

The UK Start Up Visa is suitable for entrepreneurs with high potential to grow a successful business in the UK. These entrepreneurs are not required to provide any evidence of minimum funding to sustain their new business venture. However, an endorsing body must back up its business idea. Thus, the business has to be competitive and beneficial to the UK economy. By obtaining a successful endorsement from an endorsement body, the new business gets a letter that explains the business idea to the Home Office visa application.

Eligibility Criteria

These are some of the requirements that a new business owner must produce to acquire the UK Start Up Visa;

  • The entrepreneur must maintain a minimum bank balance of £945 in his/her bank account for 90 days before the date of application.

  • The entrepreneur must fulfil the English language requirements to remain, live, and work in the country.

  • The entrepreneur must have acquired a letter of endorsement from an authorised endorsement body to prove that the business idea is legit, innovative and viable.
