TIER 1 (INVESTOR)

For people making a significant financial investment in the Isle of Man

Tier 1 (Investor)


The Isle of Man Tier 1 (Investor) category is a premium immigration category allowing unparalleled access to live, work and do business in the Isle of Man and UK.

Tier 1 (Investor) allows people from outside the European Economic Area to live, work and do business in the Isle of Man and UK, based upon a significant investment of GBP2,000,000 or more into one or more active and trading Isle of Man companies.

The category is similar to the UK Tier 1 (Investor) category before 29 April 2019, meaning that in 2019 and early 2020 the Isle of Man offers a special opportunity to enter the category on terms no longer available in the UK. In addition, it allows investors potentially to obtain British Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and full British citizenship, without ever becoming a tax resident of the UK.

Investments must be active, and investments into bank accounts, managed funds and real estate projects do not currently qualify. However, many other investments qualify, and Kinley Legal can assess any investment plan and identify whether it qualifies for the visa.

Tier 1 (Investor) is available to new applicants from overseas, as well as to people already in the Isle of Man or UK and switching from a different long-term category. Applications from overseas are made through the relevant British immigration agency, while applications from the Isle of Man and UK are made directly to the Isle of Man Immigration Service.

As this category is expected to be replaced in early 2020, any people interested in entering the category on its current terms should contact Kinley Legal as soon as possible to ensure their application is prepared and submitted in good time.
