The Coalition Government is currently considering a number of changes to the Investor and Entrepreneur routes under Tier 1 of the Points Based System. If implemented, these changes are likely to see the introduction of new Investor categories with higher investment criteria, but with an accelerated route to permanent residence, as well as a more sophisticated Entrepreneur category aiming to attract dynamic start-ups to the UK, again with an accelerated path to permanent residence for those who create significant economic benefit to the UK.
