With ever evolving legislation, and the impact of Brexit, the law surrounding immigration is complex. To be able to work and reside in the UK expert advice is needed to ensure specific requirements are met and strict timeline adhered to.

Forsters offers an expert and efficient UK immigration and nationality law service for high net worth clients and their families. In particular, we can advise on investor, entrepreneur and student visas, covering initial applications, renewals, permanent residency and British citizenship.

Individuals and families considering relocating to the UK will also require UK tax advice and we are able to combine this with our immigration advice to provide a fully integrated service.

The UK Tier 1 (Investor) Visa route offers high net worth individuals and their families the opportunity to apply to reside in the UK by making a substantial investment of at least £2 million in the UK. The investment must be made in UK Government Bonds or shares/bonds in active and trading UK companies. Successful applicants are permitted to live, work or study in the UK. They may also later qualify for permanent residency in the UK and British citizenship.

We have extensive experience in advising clients on all aspects of the Tier 1 (Investor) Visa route preparing and submitting initial, extension and permanent residency applications.

The team also has experience of a number of global immigration programs and often works with individuals and families in determining what country, if not the UK, is most appropriate from an immigration perspective and assists in applying for such program.

Forsters' Private Client practice is top ranked in the latest edition of The Chambers HNW Guide.
