DT 1423 Tier 1 investors and entrepreneurs (FULL)

2012 has witnessed a plethora of Statements of Changes to the Immigration Rules and ever increasing restrictions on many immigration categories, from raised skills thresholds and extended ‘cooling off’ periods in Tier 2 to onerous financial and specified document requirements in family routes against this background, the Government has continued to assert its intention to encourage investors and entrepreneurs and migrants are increasingly turning to investment-based routes to enter/remain in the UK; accordingly a strong knowledge of Tier 1 categories is an essential part of any immigration practitioner s toolkit.  Post Alvi the incorporation of some (but not all!) aspects of the guidance for Tier 1 investors and entrepreneurs brings further change to wrestle with. The course aims to provide attendees with a comprehensive knowledge and advanced understanding of the Tier 1 Entrepreneur and Investor categories, including recent rule changes and policy developments.   The speakers will provide a highly practical insight and tips from their extensive experience.
