tier 1 visas

Here are the Tier 1 Visa application services that Sanctuary Law can offer.

Only nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland need apply for one of the following categories.

This category is now closed to applicants outside the UK. You can apply to extend your stay in the UK under the Tier 1 (General) category.

This is a points-based system in which applicants will need to score a total of at least 95 points if they currently have leave to remain in the UK.

If you are in any other eligible category, your total points score must be at least 100 points (unless you are covered by the HSMP Forum judicial review judgment – see below). Points will be awarded for the following:

Regardless of the points claimed if you are unable to score points for your English language ability and maintenance your application will be refused.

This is for people who are internationally recognised as potential world-leading talent in the fields of science and the arts, and who wish to work in the UK. You can only apply under the Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) if you are outside the UK.

This is a points based system in which you must score a total of 75 points. You will score 75 points if you have an endorsement from a ‘designated competent body’. This is an organisation that can judge whether you are internationally recognised in your field as a world-leading talent, or have demonstrated exceptional promise and are likely to become a world-leading talent.

At present there is a limit of 1,000 endorsements a ‘designated competent body’ can assign. These are set out in 2 phases: 500 will be available from 6 April 2012 to 30 September, and the second 500 from 1 October 2012 to 5 April 2013.

Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) is for non-European migrants who want to invest in the UK by setting up or taking over, and being actively involved in the running of, a business or businesses here. This is also a points based system in which applicants must score a total of 95 points. A total of 75 points will be awarded for access to investment funds.

If you are successful in your application certain conditions will have to be met in order to extend your stay within this category.

This category allows the UK to retain (non-European) graduates identified by UK higher education institutions as having developed world class innovative ideas or entrepreneurial skills, to extend their stay in the UK after graduation to establish or more businesses in the UK.

This is a points based system in which applicants must score a total of 95 points

This category is for high-net-worth individuals who want to make a substantial financial investment in the UK. This is a points based system in which applicants must score a total of 75 points.
