UK Citizenship by Investment

UK Tier 1 Investor Visa leads to citizenship after residency


There is no direct route to citizenship by investment in the UK. Investors can apply through the Tier 1 investor programme. If successful this will grant residency for the applicant and their family. After a period of residency citizenship can then be applied for.


The Tier 1 Investor Visa requires an investment of £2 million. This enables temporary residency in the UK for the investor and their immediate family. After a period of 3 years residency applicants can invest £5 million (£10 million after 2 years) in order to settle permanently. It is then a case of applying for British citizenship after either 5 or 6 years of residency.
