The Q1 and Q2 statistics for UK Investor Visa applications have been released by the Home Office. During Q2, the UK began to remove certain COVID restrictions, and the data released certainly reflects this.
Applicants from Hong Kong and China continue to dominate, accounting for a third of all investor visas issued, followed by Russia and the United States. Q1 2021 saw a mirrored number of applicants from Q1 2020 with 45 in total issued. Q2 2020 saw 23 visas issued (we can expect this low number to be due to the strict, worldwide COVID restrictions at the time), but Q2 2021 however has seen a total of 66 Investor Visas issued.
