Is a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa required to come to the UK?

Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) is part of the UK’s points-based system, which is for migrants from outside Europe. A person would not need to apply under the points-based system if:

 They are a national of a country in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland - the European nationals section describes your right to work in the UK;

 They are a British overseas territories citizen, unless they are from one of the sovereign base areas in Cyprus;

 They are a Commonwealth citizen with permission to enter or stay in the UK because at least one of their grandparents was born here - the UK ancestry is the route they would need to follow. Please get in touch with us if you would require any further assistance in this regard.

 They have no conditions or time limit attached to your stay.

If they are a Turkish citizen who is currently outside the UK or legally in the UK under a different immigration category, they can apply to establish themselves in business under the European Community Association Agreement with Turkey. Their application will be considered under different rules from those for Tier 1 (Entrepreneur).
