You can start a business or numerous firms with an Innovator visa. Working for your company entails being a director or being self-employed as a member of a business partnership.

  • £2 million – ILR eligibility after five years in the UK
  • £5 million – ILR eligibility after three years in the UK
  • £10 million – ILR eligibility after two years in the UK

Having secured ILR, applicants in the first category become eligible to apply for full British citizenship after spending six years in the UK. Those in the second and third categories are eligible to apply after five years of residence in the UK. Main applicants for ILR may not be absent from the UK for more than 180 days in each 12-month period. If applying for British citizenship, however, they must not have spent more than 450 days out of the UK during the five-year qualifying period, and no more than 90 days during the final 12 months.The Business Innovation (subclass 888) is for permanent residence.
