startup visa

Post by Juni12345 » Tue Jul 02, 2019 2:37 pm

should I apply for startup visa or directly to innovator visa?

For startup visa if I don't have the Uk higher education endorsement, does that mean I have to get it endorsed by the endorsing bodies on the list?

How long does it take to get an endorsement from the endorsing body?

That is entirely up to your circumstances.

Read through the requirements and decide.

Yes, you need to get an endorsement.

It is a new visa category so there are no clear indications of timelines yet
