  • Increase in Tier 1 Investor Visa applications driven by changes to US immigration

    London  business immigration  lawyers have noticed an increase in applications for  Tier 1 Investor Visas  by ultra-high net worth individuals, fuelled in part by political instability in nations such as Russia and China, and also by changes to US  Immigration .  British Citizenship lawyers are often approached about this visa route as it is seen as a ‘fast track’ route to settlement in the UK.
