The Tier 1 (Investor) category has always been an attractive route for overseas investors looking to settle in the UK. The recent fallout from the Salisbury poisoning, however, has thrown the Investor route into the spotlight again, with Theresa May now calling for a review of the regime as a whole. The scope of the review is not fully known but the investor scheme has always seen significant tightening of regulatory regimes around it. This article will evidence that, whilst it may appear to be a fragile time for potential applicants under this route, it is still a lucrative regime with more visas being granted under this route in its current form than ever before.

11 May 2018 Iain Halliday Personal Immigration
“[T]his Court sees too many cases in which applicants for leave or their advisers – particularly in cases depending on article 8 outside the Rules – devote their energies to setting out extracts from the case-law rather than to demonstrating a compelling case based on the details of the applicant’s particular circumstances. The latter exercise may require more work, but it is what the Secretary of State, and if necessary the Tribunal, will be more concerned with. Cases of this kind generally turn on their facts, and the applicable law does not require elaborate exposition.” [30]
