If you are a Turkish citizen and you want to establish yourself in business in the United Kingdom, you can apply to come to the UK under the Turkish ECAA business category. The UKBA will consider your application under the business provisions that were in force in 1973.

To qualify for a visa as a Turkish ECAA businessperson, you must show that:

  • you have the skills and ability to establish in your proposed business;
  • you will be bringing sufficient funds to establish your business;
  • you will be able to bear your share of the costs of running the business (its liabilities); and
  • your share of the profits will be enough to support you and any dependants you have without you needing to find other employment for which a work permit would normally be required.

If you want to join an existing partnership or company, you must also:

  • show that you will have an active part in running the business;
  • show that there is a genuine need for your services and investment; and
  • provide previous years' accounts for the business.

Successful applicants should be granted entry clearance for 12 months. There may be circumstances in which an applicant does have a genuine intention to establish in business in accordance with the 1973 business provisions, but the content of their application does not fully support their business proposal. In such cases entry clearance officers may consider issuing entry clearance for a period of 2 months to allow the applicant to establish their business in the UK and finalise their proposal.
