The Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa route closed to new applicants on 29 March 2019.
However, if you entered the category prior to this date, a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa extension application is still a requirement.
We emphasise the importance of ensuring that a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa extension application is supported by the right documents, in the right format.
Tier 1 Extensions
All Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa holders seeking to extend will also need to demonstrate that they have created two distinct, full-time positions for settled workers, each of which must have lasted for a 12 month period at the point that the extension/ILTR application is submitted.
To extend a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa the visa holder will need to demonstrate that:
Visa holders are still able to combine two or more part-time jobs that add up to 30 hours per week (provided each job lasted for at least 12 months), as has been permitted for Tier 1 (Entrepreneurs) regardless of the date that they first entered the route.
Appendix A to the Immigration Rules sets out various strict requirements in terms of the documents that must be provided in support of a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa extension application. Two recent decisions from the Court of Appeal and Administrative Court have demonstrated the need to pay close and particular attention to the specified evidence requirements as prescribed in Appendix A of the Immigration Rules.
Indefinite Leave to Remain Applications
There are fewer specified documents in ILTR applications than extensions, as the ‘investment’ element of the application will already have been assessed.
However, it is very important to prepare applications carefully as there are still specified documents relating to employment and the subjective ‘genuineness’ element of an application also requires careful attention with a business plan document.
