TIER 1 (ENTREPRENEUR)

For people starting or joining one or more businesses in the Isle of Man

Tier 1 (Enterpreneur)


The Isle of Man maintains the popular Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) route, for people who applied prior to 6 April 2020 to start or join Isle of Man businesses.

Entrepreneur allows people starting or joining Isle of Man businesses to obtain residence in the Isle of Man or UK, and ultimately British citizenship. The category generally requires an investment of at least GBP200,000 and creation of at least two jobs for workers in the Isle of Man. The route typically leads to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) after five years, although other options are available. Kinley Legal can help ensure the viability of the business plan and the likelihood of success of the immigration application.

This category closed to most new applications on 6 April 2020. From that date, Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) is available only to new applicants switching from the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) route. People already on the Entrepreneur route can continue to extend their leave to remain and ultimately obtain ILR, and Kinley Legal can assist with all aspects of preparation for and submission of extension and ILR applications.

The Immigration Officer has yet to decide many initial Entrepreneur applications which were filed online prior to 6 April 2020 and have not yet been decided. Coronavirus (COVID-19) and staff shortages have caused delays. Many such applications currently cannot proceed until British application centres worldwide re-open. There is still time for Kinley Legal to help improve chances of success by checking supporting documents before filing and optimising business plans: please contact us for details.

The new Business Migrant (Innovator) & (Start Up) has replaced the Entrepreneur route, and offers different and, in some circumstances, more advantageous terms.
