The Home Office declined to state as to why they were quick to withdraw their suspension announcement.

Financial Times has reported that the decision to withdraw their announcement on the suspension was due to the legal representation made by the Immigration Law Practitioner’s Association (ILPA) that Barar & Associates are an active member of.

Consequently, the Tier 1 (investor) route remains open and unchanged for now. The Home Office plans to modify the Immigration Rules pertaining to Tier 1 (investor) route around April 2019.
