Efficient and experienced

You can no longer apply for a new Tier 1 (Investor) visa. If you already have this visa (or had one in the last 12 months and it was your most recent visa), you can still apply:

  • to settle in the UK (indefinite leave to remain)
  • to extend your visa for 2 years
  • for family members to join you

You may be able to extend your Tier 1 (Investor) visa for 2 years. Your family members (‘dependants’) will need to apply separately to extend their visa. They can either apply at the same time as you, or at any time before their current visa expires. You should apply before your current visa expires.

Extensions and Indefinite Leave to Remain

  • In the case of an investment of £2million, the Investor will be eligible to apply for an extension of stay for a further two years at the end of the initial period of three years, subject to proof that he or she has complied with the Investor Rules. At the end of five years, the Investor will be eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain in the UK, subject to proof of complying with the Rules throughout the period of the investment
  • An Investor who has invested £10million in the UK will be eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain after two years of residence, subject to proving compliance with the Rules throughout this period
  • An Investor who has invested £5million in the UK will be eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain after three years residence in the UK, subject to compliance of the Rules throughout this period
