OTS Success Application For Accelerated Leave to Remain Made Under Entrepreneur Visa Route
Solicitor – Teni Shahiean – Partner and co-founder of OTS Solicitors
Teni’s client is a Chinese family who came to the UK on a Tier One (entrepreneur) Visa. They had gone on to create an extremely successful business and wanted to apply for accelerated leave to remain in the UK.
How we helped
a) the business employs 10 or more people who are ‘settled’ (ie are British Citizens or have Indefinite Leave to Remain) in the UK; or
b) the organisation has a turnover of at least £5 million per year
Teni’s client is applying under the 10 or more employee qualifier. The application required a vast amount of paperwork to be collated and submitted to UK Visas & Immigration, not only from the applicants themselves, but their employees.
We have advised the clients on the supporting documentation needed, prepared the application and are currently awaiting a decision from the Home Office.
Once the family obtain Indefinite Leave to Remain, we will continue to work with them to strategise their application for British Citizenship, ensuring any business travel requirements do not jeopardise their eligibility for naturalisation.
