UK T1 Investor Visa route closed | 英国T1投资移民签证关停说明



根据目前英国内政部最新发布的消息,受俄罗斯乌克兰局势的影响,英国出于对于俄罗斯大量资金通过投资移民流入英国、进行非法金融活动的担忧,目前英国的T1投资移民签证申请通道已于2022年2月17日英国时间下午16.00正式关闭,不再接受新的申请。根据目前披露的消息,您已经持有的投资移民签证不会受到影响,但是接下来需要注意两个时间点:

According to the latest news released by the UK Home Office, considering the intense situation between Russia and Ukraine, the UK is concerned about a large amount of Russian dirty money flowing into the UK through T1 Investor route and conducting illegal financial activities. The visa route officially closed at 16.00pm UK time on 17th February and no new applications will be accepted. According to the information disclosed so far, the T1 Investor visa you already hold will not be affected, but you need to pay attention to the following two dates:


1. T1投资移民路径下的续签申请, 最晚于2026年2月17日前申请;

2. T1投资移民路径下的永居申请,最晚于2028年2月17日前申请;

1. Extension applications under the T1 Investor route should be applied before February 17, 2026 at the latest;

2. Indefinite leave to remain applications under the T1 Investor route should be applied before February 17, 2028 at the latest;


即:如果您考虑通过5年路径获得英国永居身份,您最晚需要从2023年2月17日开始必须满足在英国的居住时间要求,在连续的365天内不能离开英国超过180天,否则之后不再有继续申请续签和永居的补救机会。

That means: if you are considering obtaining UK indefinite leave to remain through the 5-year route, you must meet the residency requirement in the UK from 17 February 2023 at the latest, and cannot leave the UK for more than 180 days in any continuous 365 days, otherwise there is no longer any remedial opportunity to continue to apply for extension and indefinite leave to remain.


如果您希望更快让您的英国移民身份尘埃落定,避免后续政策上再产生任何变化,您依旧可以通过以下方式,加速获得永居:

If you want to get your settlement status faster and avoid any subsequent policy changes, you can still speed up your indefinite leave to remain application by:


1. 增加投资至 £5million,自投资额达标起满足3年的居住条件,主申请人即可申请永居;

2. 增加投资至 £10million,自投资额达标起满足2年的居住条件,主申请人即可申请永居;

1. Increase the investment to £5million, and the main applicant can apply for ILR after meeting the residence conditions for 3 years after the investment amount reaches the standard;

2. Increase the investment to £10million, and the main applicant can apply for ILR after meeting the residence conditions for 2 years after the investment amount reaches the standard;


如果您目前已经持有T1投资移民签证但还未开始投资,或是已有200万英镑投资,但希望通过增加投资额的方式加速获得永久居留权,欢迎您随时联系我们,我们依然可以为您提供全方位的协助。

If you currently hold a T1 Investor visa but have not yet started investing, or you have invested £2 million and want to accelerate your ILR by increasing your investment level, you are welcome to contact us at any time, we can still help you provide comprehensive assistance.


关于家属签证:

目前所有的投资移民其配偶和孩子的签证,不会受到投资移民签证关停的影响,Dependent Visa依旧可以正常申请。

Regarding dependant visa:

At present, the visas of all investors and their spouses and children will not be affected by the closure of route, and Dependent Visas can still be applied as usual.
