Start up visa

Post by wolfldy25 » Wed May 26, 2021 5:07 am

I don't know if anyone can answer this, but can you have a start up visa and a healthcare worker visa at the same time? I plan to move to the UK in the future and work as a nurse and to have a Karate school. Anyone that gives assistance with this question, I am grateful.

No you cannot. You can only hold one visa at a time in the UK.

A start up visa is for starting an innovative business, that's different to anything else in the market. You also need to be endorsed. A karate school would likely not meet this requirement as there are already many in the UK.

Hi,
This particular system of karate is nowhere in the UK though. So would that qualify me for the start up visa?

Depends if you can get endorsement from an authorising body and meet all the requirements.

If a start up visa is granted, your healthcare worker visa will be cancelled.

Hi,
So I couldn't work as a nurse and have a karate school at the same time? Many of the karate teachers in this system has a day job and do the karate teaching at night. That's my intention.

On a healthcare visa, no you can't.
