Are you a foreign citizen interested in starting a business or expanding your existing one to the UK?

You may not be aware of the Self-Sponsorship route to the Skilled Worker visa, which offers a unique opportunity. This article aims to provide you with all the essential information if you’re an immigrant looking to establish a business in Britain.

What does Self-Sponsorship mean exactly? In the context of visas, Self-Sponsorship refers to applying for a work visa without relying on a third-party UK-based sponsor.

This can be particularly advantageous if you already have a successful business in your home country and want to explore opportunities in the UK. Unlike the Start-up and Innovator founder visas, the Self-Sponsorship route doesn’t require an innovative or unique business idea.

Taking the Self-Sponsorship route may also lead to the possibility of obtaining permanent residency and British Citizenship in the UK, both for you and your family members.

Is Self-Sponsorship right for you?

If you dream of owning and managing a UK-based business while working and living in the country without the fear of losing your visa, then the Self-Sponsorship route is tailored to your needs. This route is open to anyone with a profitable business idea, a willingness to work hard, and a desire for personal freedom.

To qualify for the Self-Sponsorship route, you need to meet the following conditions:

  1. Possess skills, qualifications, or experience in the field of business you plan to establish or develop in the UK.
  2. Have a business idea that demonstrates profitability in the UK, or possess an existing business.
  3. Sufficient resources to support your UK business idea; it is advised to have a minimum of £50,000, depending on the nature of your business.
  4. Appoint a person settled in the country to take on the responsibilities of Director and Authorising Officer.
  5. Successfully complete a basic Level B1 English test.

If you meet the requirements listed above, you can confidently pursue the Self-Sponsorship route.

Now, what are the benefits of choosing Self-Sponsorship over other options?

Suppose you satisfy all the conditions for taking the Self-Sponsorship route to the Skilled Worker visa. In that case, you can establish a company that functions as your sponsor instead of searching for a sponsoring company. Unlike the Innovator Founder Visa, the Self-Sponsorship route doesn’t necessitate a minimum investment, making it ideal for those starting out. This approach also empowers you to have 100% ownership of your business, providing complete control over your professional destiny. Additionally, the language requirements for the Self-Sponsorship route are set at the basic B1 level instead of the more advanced B2 required for the Innovator Visa.

Another advantage is that the business model doesn’t need to be unique or innovative. As a result, you’re not required to obtain an endorsement from an endorsing body, which saves time and expenses. Furthermore, the Skilled Worker visa granted through the Self-Sponsorship route is valid for 4 years, making it longer-lasting than the 3-year Innovator Founder visa and the 2-year Start-up visa.

If you’re interested in the Self-Sponsorship route, Global Law can assist you in registering your company in the UK. We have a team of UK professionals who can guide you through the process and help you secure the Skilled Worker visa.

Additionally, as a non-UK resident, you’ll need to appoint a UK-based Director, a service that Global Law can also facilitate. With over 100 successful cases of supporting entrepreneurs in obtaining business visas and a pool of 100’s experts in various business aspects, we can provide comprehensive assistance—from business establishment to marketing—to ensure your venture’s success.
