  • Tier 1 Entrepreneur category – potential changes
    16 October 2015
    In March 2015, the Migration Advisory Committee (the MAC) was commissioned by the Home Office to review the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa category, with a view to ensuring that the potential economic benefit of the route is maximised as well as considering attractiveness to genuine entrepreneurs. Since then, there have been rumours that the Home Office might introduce new changes to the Tier 1 Entrepreneur category. The question is: will it change in November 2015? In our opinion, this is unlikely, since the MAC has not yet published the report; but what changes are likely to be introduced? What is certain is that the existing Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) route does not seem to deliver the needed economic benefits and the current political party is under a lot of pressure over immigration.
