Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa Extension

The hard work and funds that go into setting up a successful business in the UK is a big achievement that you may wish to continue with once your visa expires. This is when you would apply for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa extension that will allow you remain in the UK for up to two years with the possibility of settlement in the UK after this.

You would need to apply at least eight weeks before you current visa expires as this is the processing time it usually takes for such applications; possibly longer if the Home Office require further information or evidence.

You need to demonstrate you have registered as self-employed or a director within six months of being granted your current Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, created jobs that have existed for a minimum of twelve months and you have invested a minimum of £50,000 in a UK business. You should include any dependents that are on your current visa on your application form, even if they are now over 18. 

We recommend you speak to an Immigration expert as the extension of a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa can be complicated as you need to satisfy that you meet the comprehensive financial requirements.

One of our experts will work with you to ensure a strong, comprehensive application is being made, along with the documents to demonstrate all eligibility requirements. Your application will be accompanied by a Letter of Representation highlighting the merits of your case, referring it to relevant UK immigration law. Your caseworker will make certain that your application will have the maximum chance of success.
