Innovator Visa FAQ

Is there a possibility to switch to the new category?

Yes – individuals already in the UK under a variety of visa categories may be eligible to switch to the new Innovator Visa pathway. Examples of which include:

  • Start-up
  • Tier 1 (Entrepreneur)
  • Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur)
  • Tier 2

Contact Aristone Solicitors to discuss eligibility requirements in more detail, if interested in switching to the new Innovator Visa route.

What is the Job Creation Requirement?

The terms of the new Innovator Visa pathway include a job creation requirement of either 10 full-time jobs with no specific salary requirements, or five full-time jobs paying £25,000 or more per year.

Will I Need to Work in My Business Full-Time?

You must not only work in your business full-time, but you must also provide verification to satisfy your endorsing body that you are doing so.

After How Long Can I Apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain?

You will need to spend a minimum of three years of unbroken residency in the United Kingdom under the Innovator Visa pathway, before you will be able to apply for permanent residence.

For more information on any of the above or to discuss your eligibility in more detail, contact a member of the team at Aristone Solicitors today.
