At the London Institute of Business and Technology (LIBT), we are enthusiastic about supporting the Department for Enterprise’s initiative to attract talented entrepreneurs to the Isle of Man through our innovative hub, Launchpad. As part of our commitment to fostering business innovation and entrepreneurial success, LIBT assists prospective entrepreneurs in navigating the application process and establishing their ventures on this strategically positioned island.

Seamless Integration into the Common Travel Area

The Isle of Man is part of the Common Travel Area, which includes the UK, Ireland, and the Channel Islands, allowing for seamless travel and residence for those living and working here. Establishing a business in the Isle of Man offers entrepreneurs almost the same lifestyle benefits as residing in the UK, with added financial and regulatory advantages.

Why the Isle of Man is an Ideal Place to Live and Work

The Isle of Man boasts a high quality of life, scenic landscapes, and a safe, community-oriented environment. Its robust economy, favourable tax regime, and supportive government policies make it an attractive destination for startups and established businesses alike. The island also offers excellent educational facilities, healthcare services, and recreational activities, making it an ideal place for both singles and families.

Endorsement and Visa Application Support

The Department for Enterprise is the sole endorsing body for the Business Migrant route as detailed in Appendix X of the Isle of Man Immigration Rules. Entrepreneurs must secure a Letter of Endorsement from the Department, which is essential for the visa application. This endorsement is granted after a detailed assessment of proposed business ventures, ensuring they align with the current Endorsement Policy.

Categories of Business Migrant Opportunities

Start-Up Sub-Category:
Ideal for migrants looking to launch an innovative, viable, and scalable business. This category provides a residency period of 2 years and 4 months, specially designed to nurture and develop burgeoning enterprises. Although it does not lead directly to indefinite leave to remain, participants may transition to the Innovator sub-category to extend their entrepreneurial journey.

Innovator Sub-Category:
Tailored for experienced business professionals who wish to establish, join, or take over one or more businesses in the Isle of Man. This category is suited for those ready to invest a minimum of £50,000 in their venture. Migrants in this category must demonstrate a business idea that is not only innovative and viable but also scalable. Successful participation in this category paves the way for indefinite leave to remain, offering long-term opportunities on the island.

How LIBT Supports Your Journey

Through Launchpad, LIBT provides tailored guidance to help you understand the necessary steps and requirements for both sub-categories. Our team offers insights into local resources, including connections with Isle of Man Advocates who specialise in immigration law. We are here to support you from the initial idea phase through to the successful establishment of your business.
