Tier 1 Investment Visas

What is a Tier 1 Investment Visa?

If you are looking for a long-term Visa option for the UK then you can apply to the UK or the Isle of Man (IoM).  This will give you the ability to stay in the UK and apply for the IRR (Indefinite Right to Remain) and then a Passport.


Secret Hills (IOM) Ltd is a company operated and controlled from its base in the Isle of Man, developing and operating a hotel resort in Cyprus. The hotel investment not only qualifies as your investment vehicle for your Tier 1 Investment Visa, but allows you to benefit from the extremely low tax rates in IoM.

Summary of the criteria

  • Invest £2,000,000 or more in active and trading Isle of Man registered companies (such as Secret Hills)

  • You can work or study in the IoM or the UK

  • After 5 years you can apply to settle (the IRR) and apply for a passport

    • Or apply in just 2 years if you invest £10 million

    • Or 3 years if you invest £5 million

  • You must be 18 or over to apply for this visa


So Why use Isle of Man Visa and not go direct to UK?


  • IoM Visa & Settlement – includes UK and common travel areas

  • Same travel options as UK direct Visa

  • Quick decision and turnaround time

  • Dedicated legal advisor taking you through the whole process

  • Good access to decision makers

  • 0% Corporation Tax

  • No Capital Gains Tax

  • Low rates for personal tax


Your Tier 1 Investor Visa in the Isle of Man

The Isle of Man is an island in the Irish sea, at high level you can see England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland from the same point.  The island is a self-governing British Crown Dependency. The Visa rules are however very similar to the UK.  The Visa applies to the Common Travel Area, which includes the IoM and the rest of the UK.

An Isle of Man Visa holder (and eventually passport holder) has access to the ‘Common Travel Areas’ which includes the UK, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. This will allow you to live, work, study and travel anywhere in the UK during and after your successful application for Visa and IRR (Indefinite Right to Remain).
