The Innovator visa was launched on 29 March 2019 to replace the Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa. The new immigration route is designed for experienced entrepreneurs from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland who wish to launch their own business in the UK.
You may also be able to switch to an Innovator visa from a Standard Visitor visa provided you come to the UK to get funding and obtain a supporting letter from an endorsing body.
Please speak to Tanya Laidlaw if you would like to learn more. If you require corporate legal support for your new venture, we are able to provide specialist advice.
