Welcome all Entrepreneurs and Leaders

This could be the first step for your new future in the United Kingdom!

We know that if you found your way here, you are a dreamer and an achiever. You have an idea that you want to make a reality, and maybe you have even heard about all the money being poured into UK start-ups. Well, you are on the right track! Right now, there seems there is no better place in the world to start a new business (or scale up an existing one) than the UK where the start-up and scaleup ecosystem alone is currently valued at £585 billion.

First things first, though… if you are not from the UK, you will need a visa to begin your new business venture, which means that you will need an endorsement. Luckily for you, the experts at T1 Digital have years of experience in finding the best route to endorsement approvals.

Here we explain how YOU could become a successful endorsement applicant…

Who exactly is a UK Start-up visa for?

This visa category is aimed at new entrepreneurs wishing to kick-start their first business in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, making it ideal for those wanting to:

  • make a change
  • start a new company
  • bring an innovative idea to life
  • enable a better future
  • have a positive impact
  • create their own legacy
Key eligibility requirements

Amongst the criteria that applicants must meet in order to successfully apply for a Start-up visa, following are the three main points to consider.
Applicants must…

  • ... have an endorsement from an approved endorsing body that assesses their business plan. This assessment establishes that the business is innovative, viable and scalable.​
  • ... be at least 18 years old and competent in the English language to at least CEFR Level B2 (equivalent to IELTS 5.5 in reading, writing, listening, and speaking)
  • ... be aware that funding is not necessary as there are no education or initial funding requirements for endorsement.
