UNITED KINGDOM

HOW TO OBTAIN UNITED KINGDOM CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT

Entrepreneurs and family members had the opportunity to obtain United Kingdom citizenship by first applying for a Tier1 (Investor) visa. Then, the passport of a British citizen. In February 2022, the Tier 1 program was completely frozen due to suspicions of abuse and financial fraud.

However, experts believe it’s time to modernize and bring back the popular migration route. Many point out that the closure of the UK investor visa has hurt the UK economy. The program can be restarted, but only with the necessary mechanisms to ensure that all due diligence checks are met.

Regarding the screening of candidates, the example should be taken from the countries of the Caribbean region. These are the pioneers of the citizenship by investment industry, such as Saint Kitts and Nevis. In these countries, CIPs have been operating for almost 40 years. Additionally, inspections are carried out in a very strict, organized manner.

It’s also possible that the Caribbean experience of non-refundable investments (donations) will be adopted when the applicant is offered to contribute a certain amount to the state fund for economic development.

It remains to wait until the details of this reform become known. However, the Tier 1 program, the UK Investor Visa, has been very expensive and will require residency in the UK. Whereas, if you are interested in visa-free entry, you can choose one of the programs of the Caribbean region (for example, citizenship of Grenada) and get the opportunity to stay in the UK without a visa 180 days a year.

Apex Capital Partners specialists will provide professional legal support, prepare all the necessary documents, and consult at all stages, while Tier1 (Investor) visa is being processed.

There’s no shortage of business opportunities here. The nation currently ranks as #5 economy in the world. Some of the largest growing industries include mineral fuels and oil, nuclear reactors, automotive, pharmaceuticals and electric appliances.

Additionally, the service sector has been growing at a rapid pace, led by financial services, UK entertainment (TV shows), education, and transportation services.

As a nation, the public is well-educated and highly skilled, being home to some of the world’s top universities, such as Cambridge, Oxford and St. Andrews. Prior to entering these universities, 91% of students in the UK graduate from high school.

Getting a United Kingdom citizenship will enable you to enjoy the public-school system which is free. Additionally, there are countless private school options to choose from.

The housing market in the UK has been surging since 2016, with the average home rising just over 5%. The average home cost is now £242,415 ($310,000 USD), but real estate investors wouldn’t find this to be a hotspot for rental income, which sits at a poor 3%. Of course, location can play a large role in both price and rental yield. Prices in the capital of London are much higher than in smaller neighboring cities.

We don’t recommend obtaining a United Kingdom passport if you’re looking to invest in lots of real estate; there are many better second passport options out there.

The healthcare system in the UK is divided amongst its territories, meaning England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales each have their own system of public-funded healthcare, each with its own rules and regulations.

Simply put, those with United Kingdom citizenship benefit from some of the best healthcare in the world, ranking at the top for quality of care, access to care, efficiency and equity.
