The UK Innovator Visa is a new option replacing the previous Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa that applicants had to opt for, if they have intentions of setting up a business in the UK. Our associates at SmartMove2UK (a unit of SmartMove Immigration) have been working overtime to ensure that as many people are aware about this new route as possible. One of the key aspects of applying under this visa category is to ensure that you are endorsed by one of the bodies in the list of Innovator Visa UK endorsing bodies.

If you are endorsed by one of the official bodies in the UK, the rest of the procedure becomes fairly straightforward, albeit potentially tedious and time consuming. This is because the main aspect of being granted an Innovator Visa to the UK is the applicant’s ability to prove that they have a business plan that is viable, scalable, and of course innovative.

The details of what these terms stand for may be understood in detail with the help of our experts in SmartMove Immigration’s on going initiative – “Innovator and Startup Visa Roadshow 2019”.

For more details on this initiative, what you stand to gain from attending, and information on the expert providing you with said information on business expansions to the UK, just drop in your email below and one of our associates will send you all the relevant information about the events straight to your inbox.
