Tier 1 investor visa extension

If you are currently in the UK with a Tier 1 Investor Visa you can apply to stay longer in the UK by applying for a Tier 1 Investor Visa extension.

You will be able to do this, as long as you can prove that you have invested at least £750,000 within your first three months of living in the UK. If you are successful, your Tier 1 Investor extension will allow you to continue to reside in the UK for another two years. This is provided you continue to invest in active UK companies during this time.

Our expert immigration lawyers have vast experience working with high net-worth individuals who want to invest in the UK. One of our immigration lawyers can work with you to assess your investment options and eligibility for a Tier 1 Investor Visa extension. He/she will work around your busy schedule and take full responsibility for completing your application form to the best possible standard.

Your lawyer will also prepare a Letter of Representation providing the virtues of your case to support your application. With IAS, applying for a Tier 1 Investor Visa extension is made simple. Get in touch today on 0333 363 8577 or make an enquiry online to discuss your case.

Tier 1 investor visa extension FAQs

Am I eligible to extend my Tier 1 Investor Visa?

If you were granted your Tier 1 Investor Visa before 6th November 2014, you can extend your visa if you meet the following requirements:

  • You have at least £1 million of accessible funds in your name
  • You have invested a minimum of £750,000 into government bonds, share capital or loan capital in UK companies
  • You invested this sum within three months of your ‘investor start date’

If you were granted your Tier 1 Investor Visa on or after 6th November, you can extend your visa if you meet the following requirements:

  • You have at least £2 million of accessible funds in your name
  • You have invested this amount in UK government bonds, share capital or loan capital in UK companies
  • You invested this sum within three months of your ‘investor start date’

When can I apply for an extension on my Tier 1 Investor Visa?

To extend your visa, a successful application must be made before your current Investor Visa has expired.

This is very important. If your visa expires and is not renewed and you do not have another valid UK visa, the Home Office will consider you an over-stayer.

This could result in your removal, caution or detainment by UK Immigration Authorities.
