USA and the UK
If you currently have leave to be in the UK on a Tier 1 Investor Visa, you can apply to stay for longer by applying for a Tier 1 Investor Visa Extension.
The main requirement to extend your Tier 1 Investor Visa is proof that you have invested at least £750,000 in your first three months of living in the UK. The Tier 1 Investor Visa extension will allow you to stay for an extra two years. You must also prove that you will continue to invest in UK-based businesses throughout your stay.

If you were granted a Tier 1 Investor Visa before 6th November 2014, you will be able to extend it on the condition that:
- 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 within three months of receiving your Investor Visa
If you were granted your visa on or after 6th November 2014, you can extend your visa if:
- You have at least £2 million on 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’
Usually, you should get a decision on your Tier 1 Investor Visa within three weeks. This is provided your extension is not being made under any special or complex circumstances, in which case it may take longer.
You must apply for an extension before your current Tier 1 Investor Visa expires.
If you do not apply for your Tier 1 Investor Visa extension before your current leave expires, you will be considered an over-stayer. This means that you could face penalties.
This could result in a caution, detainment or even an order for removal by UK Immigration Authorities.
Our team is made up of highly-qualified immigration lawyers who can provide you with expert Tier 1 Investor guidance. As you are restricted by your current leave, we understand the need for a fast, reliable service.
Your lawyer will confirm your eligibility for the Tier 1 Investor Visa extension and support you through each step of the process. Our services include:
- Performing a full document check to ensure you have the correct evidence before applying;
- Writing a Letter of Representation to be submitted with your application;
- Keeping in contact with the Home Office for the duration of your application;
- Ensuring that you can prove you meet the investment requirement;
- Completing all your application forms to the highest possible standard.
