If you are already in the UK on Tier 5 International Agreement vsia, you may be able to apply for renewal of your visa from inside the UK. You should apply for renewal of your Tier 5 International Agreement visa within 28 days before the expiry of your existing Tier 5 International Agreement visa.

To apply for extension, you must continue to meet the eligibility rules.

Eligibility

You can apply for a Tier 5 (Temporary Worker - International Agreement) visa if you have:

  • a certificate of sponsorship (CoS) reference number
  • £945 in savings - this is to prove you can support yourself and you must have had this in your bank account for 90 days before you apply. You won’t need £945 in savings if your fully approved (‘A-rated’) sponsor has stated on your certificate of sponsorship that they’ll certify your maintenance and that you won’t claim benefits during your stay.

How Long You Can Stay?

You can apply to extend your visa for up to 2 years at a time up to a total maximum stay of 6 years unless:

  • you are a private servant in a diplomatic household and applied for your visa on or after 5 April 2012 - your total maximum stay can only be 5 years or until the last date of your employer’s posting, whichever is shorter
  • you are a contractual service supplier or independent professional - you can only stay in the UK for a maximum of 6 months in any 12 month period.
