The Evaluation Committee, which is responsible for determining applications made under the Immigrant Investor Programme/Start Up Entrepreneur Programme, meets every two to three months. Therefore, depending on how far in advance of a meeting an application is received, the overall processing time could take from one to four months.

The Department will contact the Deputy with regard to a dedicated contact point.
