Tier 1 Investor Visa

The U.K.’s golden visa-style program offers three streams under its official name, the Tier 1 Investor Visa. You can choose to invest 2 million GBP, 5 million GBP or 10 million GBP. The higher the amount, the shorter the hold period and the wait for indefinite leave to remain (the U.K.’s term for permanent residency). You are eligible for British citizenship after five or six years of residency. As a Tier 1 Investor visa holder, you will receive a multi-exit visa allowing you to travel in and out of the U.K.
