New Zealand just reformed their immigration system last March 2014 bringing a new Entrepreneur work visa in hope to better attract global entrepreneurs in the tech industry. Italy introduced a ground breaking fast track visa for innovative startups and entrepreneurs. Similarly, Canada launched an ambitious immigration policy initiative towards entrepreneurs and investors, providing permanent residency to those who apply successfully to it. Canada is also reforming the way they process application from highly skilled migrants.

+ The “cheapest” Entrepreneur visa is in Chile where you are not asked to bring investment to the country, quite the opposite: they give you money! This said, it does not mean it is easy to get because you will have to get accepted in the very selective Start up Chile Accelerator.

+ Only Canada offers a permanent resident visa, compared to all other countries which offer a temporary visa. Basically, if you are an entrepreneur and apply successfully, you are at home in Canada then on without any need to renew your visa, and possibly without any immigration hassle in the future. It is a big welcome and attractive policy for an entrepreneur, along with the requirements that offer different threshold of investment to prove according to the source of the funding capital when applying to the visa.

+ Funding requirement varies across countries and still some similarities can be exposed: for countries without the need for entrepreneurs to show initial investment or funding, those applicants will likely have to have been accepted in an accelerator recognized by the country state. The UK only offers to “lower” the minimum amount of initial investment startup capital the applicants have to show if accepted by an accelerator.

+ Italy with a fast track route for Entrepreneurs and startups linked to major tax breaks and a supportive system of incubators is one visa and country to watch carefully if one is interested to start in Europe

@Ms Ngan

Very informative writeups and impressive website..

1/ What can/would you be doing for the workers who have overstayed and has become illegal migrant workers?
2/ Do you have a representative office in Kuala Lumpur.? If yes, do post their details here.. Very little is known about agents from Vietnam. Your countrymen MAY have, often been "fleeced" by "other types" of "agents".

Thank you
