How long it will take to settle in the UK depends on the value of your investment into the UK. You can apply to settle after:
- two years if you invest £10 million;
- three years if you invest £5 million; or
- five years if you invest £2 million.
Further information about ILR and settlement can be found here.
All dependants of an Investor have to wait five years before they are eligible to apply for ILR.
There are other eligibility requirements for ILR which you should be mindful of. Please contact us to discuss these to ensure that you do not fall foul of these whilst holding your Investor visa.
As a result of the changes to this route introduced on 17 February 2022, settlement will now be conditional on applicants executing an investment strategy that can show genuine job creation and other tangible economic impacts, holding UK investments will no longer be enough.
