A practical guide to immigration law and Tier 1 Entrepreneur applications within the Points-Based System.

The Immigration Rules for Tier 1 Entrepreneur applicants have become a real minefield to work through. From numerous changes to incredibly precise and complex substantive and evidential requirements, preparing successful applications and challenging refusals can often be very difficult.

This guide will help practitioners to navigate through the relevant rules and the Home Office guidance. It will also include an analysis of the ‘genuineness’ test, which is applied at all levels of Tier 1 Entrepreneur applications as well as an overview of how practitioners may be able to make use of the ‘evidential flexibility’ provisions when seeking to challenge refusals by the Home Office. Where relevant, the guide will cross-refer to applicable case-law and will also feature short case-studies as examples.
