It is expected that Immigration Rules will change as of April 2014 so that (i) £2 million of cash funds are required rather than £1 million; (ii) through the premium route, 100 visas will be auctioned with a reserve price of £2.5 million with the benefit that applicants obtain Indefinite Leave to Remain after 2 years and  need only stay in the UK for 90 days per year; and (iii) the range of investments will be broadened with the possibility that investing in gilts are to be reduced or prohibited. These changes will be analysed by professional immigration lawyers and how this will affect investment from Chinese citizens. Alan Ma and Daniel Cheung of Maxwell Alves Solicitors, a leading firm for providing specialist legal advice to the Chinese, will be available to answer any questions you might have.


The UK is a favoured location for investors from China. Its infrastructure, innovation, education, standard of living and political stability is attractive to many investors.  To ensure the visa application is successful to enter and remain in the UK, it is essential to keep up-to-date with the ever changing immigration rules.  Once the necessary entry clearance is obtained, it is equally important to ensure that investment is effectively put in-place for maximum growth and return.
