The IAS Visa Wizard is the easy way to find the correct visa for you
If you have started a successful business in the UK and built your life here, you are likely to want to stay in the country to continue your business. For those currently on the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa, the best course of action would be an Entrepreneur Visa extension.
Your business must have been financially successful to apply for an Entrepreneur Visa Extension. The timing for this application is very important. You will need to apply at least eight weeks before your current leave is set to expire. You can apply to extend your leave for up to two years, after which you may be eligible to settle in the UK. Extending this type of visa can be difficult. You must continue to meet all the expectations of your previous application and prove that your business has been a success. Your application will be closely scrutinized by the Home Office.
We can help you prepare the relevant business documents, future forecasts, and other evidence. Your lawyer will also prepare a Letter of Representation to submit with your application. This document provides information on your case and cites relevant UK immigration law to support you. With our services, your chances of receiving an Entrepreneur Visa extension will be maximized. Get in touch today on +1844 290 6312 or make an inquiry online to speak to an expert immigration lawyer.
The Entrepreneur Visa extension requires you to prove that your business has been a success for your initial time in the UK. You will need to provide evidence that you:
The business must also have been beneficial to the UK economy.
You must have proof that you have correctly invested the entire £50,000 or £200,000 from your initial application.
The business you are applying with must also be the same business from the business plan you entered the country with.
You will also need to prove that you continue to meet the other Tier 1 regulations under the points-based system.
You will need to prove that your business has provided at least two full-time paying jobs for employees settled in the UK.
You will also need to prove that you intend to continue running the same business during your extended leave.
It is important to note that an application for an Entrepreneur Visa extension is different when in the country to being elsewhere.
You can apply by post for an extension if you are in the country, from outside you can only apply online.
There are many things which will affect your Entrepreneur Visa extension. If your situation changes, you may be asked to attend another Home Office interview or to supply more evidence.
The important thing to remember when applying for an extension is you must apply before your Tier 1 Visa expires.
If your visa extension application is not approved before the end of your current leave, you will be considered an over-stayer. You will then be subject to immigration penalties or removal from the country.
If you would like to extend your Entrepreneur Visa, you must ensure that you submit your application before your current visa ends.
