The settlement route is 5 years but can be shortened if you are able to invest in excess of £5million or £10million. You will need to show how long you have had the funds, evidence how you acquired them and get confirmation that the money is either in, or can be transferred, to the UK.

You will need to make an investment in UK government bonds, share capital or loan capital in active and trading UK registered companies. Investments in property development, investment management are prohibited. You will need to maintain the value of your investments during the duration of your time in the UK.

You must show sufficient funds to maintain yourself and any dependants, as well as passing a criminal record check from your country of origin.
