Source of funds for tier 1 investor Visa

Post by puneetschdv » Sun Oct 04, 2015 2:42 pm

Hi All,

I am currently in UK and my visa is till March 2016. I am planning to start a coaching business in UK. Is it possible to obtain tier 1 investor visa in case the GBP 200,000 funds requirement is completed through obtaining loan from UK bank or do we need to bring the money from outside the country ?

Thanks and Regards

What is your immigration status now?
I do not give immigration advice. I refer you to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor.

Hi Puneet,

Could you please clarify which visa you are thinking of applying?
Tier 1 Investor has £2mil investment requirement, Tier 1 Entrepreneur - £200.000.
From what you wrote it looks like you are thinking of Tier 1 Entrepreneur in which case you can get funds from third parities e.g relatives or an investor.
