Action against corruption

Yesterday, the UK government closed the Tier 1 Investor visa route with immediate effect, as the first move in a new plan to take firm action to crackdown on corrupt elites and strengthen confidence in our immigration system.

  • The New Plan for Immigration will mean zero tolerance for those wanting to abuse our immigration system and is aimed to stop will corrupt elites to enter the UK using dirty money.
  • That is why we are closing the Tier 1 Investor visa route to all new applicants with immediate effect after reviews revealed that it had been used by people acquiring their wealth illegitimately and associated with wider corruption.

This is just the start of a renewed crackdown on fraud & illicit finance.

An upcoming Fraud Action Plan and the Economic Crime Bill will better protect the taxpayer.
