A year and several months later, there is still political and economic uncertainty regarding the United Kingdom’s future following its decision to leave the European Union (EU). Recent reports suggest that the pound currency has also dropped its value and as a result, the business and education sectors in the UK are starting to raise concerns about the future of their respective sectors in the UK. Despite the unrest, Home Secretary, Amber Rudd has reassured the public that the UK is still one of the leading places for Tier 4 Students and Tier 1 Investors and Entrepreneurs.
The future is bright for Tier 4 Students and Tier 1 Investors and Entrepreneurs
The UK Government has recently been criticised by experts in the business and academic sectors for failing to provide satisfactory assurances for the future of business and education opportunities in the UK. The primary concern is the UK Government’s everlasting focus on cutting down net migration and failure to acknowledge the risk of facing a shortage of workers in the UK. In addition to this, it is still unclear what free movement rights European Economic Area (EEA) workers may have following the UK’s departure from the European Union (EU).
The Home Secretary Amber Rudd has attempted to allay concerns on the post-Brexit labour shortages by promising to work with the UK Government’s independent advisers on migration in preparing reports on the impact of free movement on the British economy and the value those international students bring to the education sector. These reports would hopefully provide an insight on the future of the business and education sectors. The contents of these reports are yet to be seen but Amber Rudd has recently stated suggested that future is bright for the business and education sectors. She has recently stated that she is:
“committed to working with businesses, both large and small; to make sure we don’t impose unnecessary burdens, or create damaging labour shortages.” “We’ll be taking these decisions on the basis of comprehensive new evidence.”
The UK Still Ideal for Tier 4 Students and Tier 1 Investors and Entrepreneurs
Despite the recent concerns, the UK is still one of the leading places for Tier 4 Students as the UK is the home to some of the best educational institutions in the UK. Similarly, the UK is an attractive investment location as Applicants investing in the UK could benefit from settlement rights. International students can apply for a Tier 4 Student visa if they have been offered a place on the course and can demonstrate that they can accommodate and maintain themselves in the UK. Applicants must also be able to show that they can speak, read, write and understand English.
The Tier 1 Investor and Entrepreneur route is a well-sought route under the Immigration Rules for high net business peoples wanting to invest in the UK. The two applications are very different in nature, The Tier 1 Investor Visa route is available to high net worth individuals who intend on making substantial financial investments in the UK. he minimum amount that the Applicant must have is £2m and Applicants must demonstrate that they have opened a bank account in the UK for the purpose of investing at least £2m. Unlike the Tier 1 Entrepreneur route Applicants are not required to provide evidence of maintenance as well as meet any English language requirements, which makes this particular visa very popular. We have recently written about Applicants potentially using an investment vehicle to invest in the UK under the Tier 1 Investor visa route to work and study in the UK.
The Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa is also a very popular visa for Applicants who aim to come to either set up a new business or to take over an existing business. Applicants are required to provide evidence that they have access to a minimum of £200,000 in investment funds ready and available to invest in the UK. The Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa initially allows Applicants to be in the UK for a maximum period of 3 years and 4 months, after which Applicants may then apply for an extension for a further 2 years.
