About Visa & Eligibility Requirements

Innovator Founder Visa has been introudced by the UK Goverment, for start-up and seasoned entrepreneurs who are looking to launch a company in the UK. The main requirement for applicants is that they have an innovative, viable and scalable business idea that is supported by a strong business plan that has been authorised by a UK goverment approved endorsing body. The Innovator Founder Visa, which has taken effect from April 2023 onwards, has replaced the Start-up and Innovator Visas routes, which were previously available for interested entrepreneurs.

You must demonstrate to the Home Office the following, inorder to be granted the visa:

  • You are at least 18 years old.
  • You have an endorsement letter from an authorised UK endorsing body.
  • Your endorsement letter was issued not more than 3 months prior to the date of your Innovator visa application.
  • Proof of your English language proficiency.
  • You have sufficient funds to support you and any dependents.
  • Your application does not fall for refusal on general grounds for refusal.

  • The exact requirements you will need to satisfy may vary depending on the circumstances of your case. You may want to speak to an immigration lawyer for expert advice.

    Visa Benefits

      The innovator founder visa could be seen as offering the most attractive parts of both of its predecessor routes.The benefits include:

    • No £50,000 minimum investment requirement.
    • Reduced ‘check in’ requirement with endorsing body – only two, down from 3 under the start up rules.
    • Apply to settle permanently in the UK (also known as ‘indefinite leave to remain’) if you’ve lived in the UK for 3 years and meet the other eligibility requirements.
    • The visa allows the applicants to work outside their business, as long as it falls under the government declared 'skilled worker’ category.
    • The visa also permits endorsed innovator founder visa holders to establish additional businesses which are not necessarily related to the main business idea.
    • Can bring their partner and any children under the age of 18 to the UK.



    Our Success Partner

      We have partnered with the officially appointed Government Legacy Endorsing Body, Pall Mall Investment International, who are a trusted introducer, to one of the Home Office approved Innovator Founder endorsing bodies.

    • Pall Mall Investment International comprehensively understands the standards and levels required to pass a company for endorsement, being a legacy endorsement body themselves and enables eligible clients direct contact with investment panel members as well as transparent and timely decision-making.
    • Based on our trusted relationship developed over the years leading to successful endorsements, ElitionsConsulting directors will now be working as specialist advisors with Pall Mall Investment International, continuing to strive that our clients receive the best due diligence review/assessment and interview preparation advice to help them succeed in their endorsement application.

    Review & Approve Business Idea

      Our nine steps to your success:

    • Initial Discussion To start off with, we will look to have an informal, friendly meeting where we can learn more about one another and what to expect moving forward in partnership. We don't charge for this session.

    • Initial Analysis Once we agree to move forward with a commitment, we will begin a thorough and structured analysis of your business and its details – what you sell, your unique proposition, and your capital requirements.

    • Pitching & Processing Now, we begin to pitch your ideas to key UK Government endorsement bodies to ensure you meet their requirements regarding innovation, viability, and scalability in the future. This can provide you with the needed endorsement and an idea of your chances of success.



    Develop & Complete Business Plan

    • Plan Development With an endorsement body interested in your business idea and with your initial analysis complete, we can then begin the process of development of the business plan, pitch deck and the supporting materials for your business.

    • Review & Analysis We review the drafting of the business plan, and we will engage with meetings together and also with the endorsing body, to ensure the plan meets every need that you have in mind and also conisdering the key requirements of the endorsement body.

    • Submission Once we have agreed the final stages of the plan and we put everything together in-line with endorser recommendation, we can submit the reviewed plan to you and e-mail it across.

    Present Final Plan For Endorsement

    • Showcasing At this stage, you will present your idea to the endorsing body with our support and assistance. This will help to maximise the chances of you being able to land the Business Visa that you are looking for. Together, we ensure every stage is completed to the expected recommendation.

    • Endorsement With the endorsement body now reviewing and agreeing to your plan, you will secure your endorsement letter, once all the requirements have been fulfilled. We will work with you and the endorsement body to ensure that everything is in place and that everyone is happy with the progress that is being made.

    • Final Support Once we reach the end of the process, we can provide references of legal bodies in case if you require. You mostly will need legal support to finalise the documentation, application and submission of your Visa – we can help you to do that by offering our recommended experts.
