LEXVISA Weekly Immigration Update 4 August 2017

This week we highlighted that it is important to realise that a Standard UK Visitor Visa has many sub-categories which come with their own separate set of requirements. So when submitting a Child Visitor Visa application it is essential that you fully understand the Home Office rules and requirements. With regard to Business Immigration, this week we discussed how Donald Trump’s Immigration Ban may benefit UK Business Immigration and provided guidance on how to successfully prepare for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Interview. LEXVISA Solicitors and Barristers are qualified to assist you in submitting the strongest possible UK Visa application. 

1.Making a Successful Child Visitor Visa Application

The purpose of a Child Visitor Visa is to allow an individual who is under the age of 18 to come to the UK for up to 6 months, for many different purposes. However, those on a Child Visitor Visa are restricted from doing the following:

  • being a burden on the State and have no recourse to public funds;
  • must not study whilst they are in the UK; and
  • must not work in the UK.

It is important that adequate arrangements have been made for Child Visitor Visa Applicants for their travel to, reception and care in the UK before they travel and if the Applicant is not applying or travelling with a parent or guardian based in their home or residential country who is responsible for their care, that parent or guardian must give their consent to the arrangements for that child’s travel to, and reception and care in the UK.

It is important to seek legal advice from our specialist immigration solicitors to ensure you understand the UK’s complex immigration rules and additional requirements before submitting a Child Visitor Visa application.

2.Successfully Overcoming the Home Office Tier 1 Entrepreneur Interview

Tier 1 Entrepreneur Applicants need to meet the Genuine Entrepreneur Test as well as having an in-depth interview with the Home Office  in circumstances where there are suspicions surrounding the credibility of the Tier 1 Entrepreneur application. During the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Interview, it is important that Tier 1 Entrepreneur Applicants are able to demonstrate they have a firm knowledge of their business and understand their business plan.

During the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Interview, Applicants may be asked questions regarding immigration history, education and relevant experience and background to their business as well as about their business plan. Our team of specialist Business Immigration Solicitors can organise mock interviews or prepare mock questions in order to assist Tier 1 Entrepreneur Applicants for their Tier 1 Entrepreneur Interview.

3.Trump’s Ban Makes Tier 1 Business Immigration to the UK More Attractive

President Trump’s controversial travel ban has featured continuously in the news over the past few months. The travel ban appears to discourage Business Immigration to the United States from countries in the Middle East and Africa. This can have a positive impact for UK Business Immigration as the UK welcomes Tier 1 Entrepreneur and Tier 1 Investor Applicants.

Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visas and Tier 1 Investor Visas are aimed at high net worth individuals, and it is important to establish which Tier 1 visa route is more suitable to you before you make an application.

There are several key differences between a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa and a Tier 1 Investor Visa, such as Tier 1 Investor Applicants need to demonstrate proficiency in English, whereas Tier 1 Entrepreneur Applicants must. In order to fully understand all of the requirements for the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa and Tier 1 Investor Visa, it is advisable you speak with our specialist immigration lawyers to identify the best route for you and prepare the UK Visa application as strongly as possible.
