Prospective Entrepreneur Visa

The Prospective Entrepreneur visa allows visitors to take part in meetings and discussions to obtain funding for their business and falls under the standard visa category. Once funding is secured they may apply for a Start-up or Innovator visa to remain in the UK as an entrepreneur.

Prospective Entrepreneur visa requirements

The applicants must satisfy the Home Office that they are a genuine visitor and meet the following specific criteria.

Prospective Entrepreneur Visa applicants do not need to meet an English language requirement, but they do if they want to switch to a Start-up or Innovator visa. This visa, however, does not allow you to work for pay or unpaid, live in the UK for long periods of time through frequent trips, marry or give notice of a marriage/civil partnership, or claim public funding.
