The Start-up and Innovator visa categories: Endorsing bodies announced

29 March 2019 James Ritchie Business Immigration

As of today, the Start-up and Innovator visa categories have opened to applicants. 

The Home Office have today published a full list of authorised endorsing bodies that can issue endorsements for the Start-up visa and another for the Innovator list.

As you may note from our last update on the new visa categories, a pressing concern for applicants was that of whether endorsement bodies would be prepared in time for the commencement of the new visa routes.

The announcement of several endorsing bodies is welcome news, but vitiated somewhat by the fact that only MedCity have confirmed their position as a body, stating they “will take up this role from 29 March 2019.” Whether this means they are taking applications from today remains to be seen. It is hoped that the latest bodies confirm they are ready to take applications shortly, and budding Start-up and Innovator applicants are not kept waiting. 

If you fit the above criteria and would like more information tailored to your situation, we offer consultations and a full application service to provide advice and assistance on the best course of action to take to secure your place in the UK, contact us for expert advice from our immigration solicitors.
