Dear Sir,

Thank you for your enquiry. 

In regards to your background experience in construction and civil engineering, if you can show the transferable skills you would have in managing a IT business in the UK then it may be possible for you to qualify under the genuineness test for Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa. You will be required to submit the right type of evidence in support of your application. We will be able to assist you with this.

Someone will be in touch with you shortly to see how we can help you further.
