How could Brexit impact the processing of Tier 1 visa of the U.K.?

I am currently preparing my application for the Tier 1 visa. However, with the uncertainty of Brexit, I am wondering if I should hurry up to submit the application before October 31, or wait after this Brexit deadline to see what changes are made to this program. Please advise.

    Unfortunately, there are no details available yet on how Brexit will affect tier 1 visa applications. Most likely, the impact will be minimal since some major changes already took place. For example, there is a substitution of the tier 1 entrepreneur category with the start-up and unnovator visas, as well as certain changes to the investor visa.

    You should apply as soon as possible. If you’re not an EEA national, the Brexit deadline will not impact you in any way. If you’re making a tier 1 investor visa, the key issue that you need to address is source of funds.
