My dad is looking to open a day nursery business in the UK. He is an Indian citizen and he runs electronic business in India. He doesn't have qualification to run a nursery business, but he wants to do this business with me, as I'm a teacher. Kindly advice how we can go about this, what chances do my parents have to apply for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa?

Thank you for your email.

The Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa route allows you to invest in an existing business in the UK or set up a new business from scratch. The key to success is to ensure that your father fully understands the business he intends to establish, that his skills and experience can be matched to the business needs and that the business is viable and credible. Of course, he must also meet all the other requirements which can be discussed at length at a later stage.

Should you wish to discuss the matter further, I will be happy to arrange a consultation for you over the telephone from our office.
