  • you meet the other eligibility requirements.
  • your business or business idea has been endorsed by an approved body.

Funds you’ll need

  • You must have at least £50,000 in investment funds if you want to set up a new business. You do not need funds if either:
  • your business is already established and has been endorsed for an earlier visa
  • you’ve changed your business and already agreed it with your endorsing body
How long you can stay
