If you are in the UK with Tier 1 Investor visa granted as a result of your initial application for entry clearance or switching into Tier 1 Investor visa, you can apply for an extension of your Tier 1 Investor visa. If successful, you will be granted a leave to remain for further 2 years.

Extension of Investor Visa Where Initial Leave Was Granted Under The Rules In Place From 6 November 2014

If you were granted initial Tier 1 (Investor) entry clearance, leave to enter or leave to remain under the Rules in place on or after 6 November 2014, to extend your leave as a Tier 1 Investor you must have invested not less than £2 million in the UK by way of UK Government bonds, share capital or loan capital in active and trading UK registered companies. The investment referred to above must have been made:

  • within 3 months of your entry to the UK, if you were granted entry clearance as a Tier 1 (Investor) Migrant and there is evidence to establish your date of entry to the UK, unless there are exceptionally compelling reasons for the delay in investing, or
  • within 3 months of the date of the grant of entry clearance or leave to remain as a Tier 1 (Investor) Migrant, unless there are exceptionally compelling reasons for the delay in investing, or
  • where the investment was made prior to the first grant of leave as a Tier 1 (Investor) no earlier than 12 months before the date of the application which led to the first grant of leave as a Tier 1 (Investor) Migrant,

and in each case the level of investment has at least been maintained for the whole of the remaining period of that leave.

If there is a delay in making the investment, the reason must be unforeseeable and outside of your control. Delays caused by you failing to take timely action will not be accepted by the Home Office, UKVI. You must take reasonable steps to mitigate any delays.
