Turkish nationals are able to come to the UK on a ECAA Turkish Businessperson visa to start their own business with the opportunity to settle after 5 years.

You will need to demonstrate to the Home Office that you possess the skillset needed to set up the business proposed, the funds needed to start and run the business, and the ability to financially support yourself using the revenue from the business without requiring any additional employment.

The immigration rules have recently been amended to allow holders of the ECAA Turkish Businessperson visa to settle in the UK following a qualifying period. Please speak to one of our legal advisers to learn more.
