Thanks for your quick reply.
No they dont need any help at the moment but they are obviously getting older.
Thanks for your reply.
I see there is an option where they need to invest £200K in a UK business. I am interested to learn more about that option. Can you please elaborate more on that and what is the visa called?
I will have a good read through the links. Last few questions
- So the initial visa is 3 years and renew after that based on criteria satisfied? Renewal is for two years?
- I understand that after 5 years they can apply for indefinite leave to remain.
- Can they invest in any existing UK business? I assume that should be fine.
That should be all.
Thanks Tom, just another question on renewal that I could not figure out. Does the main applicant have to stay X days in the UK in the first three years? Or X days of the last 12 months in the UK?
