Switch to or extend a Tier 1 (Investor) visa if you want to invest £2 million or more in the UK.
If you are extending
You should also include any dependants who are on your current visa or leave to remain on your application to extend – including children who have turned 18 during your stay.
If you are switching
Your dependants can apply to extend or switch their visas to stay with you if they are already in the UK. They can do this as part of your application or on their own.
Before you apply
Before you begin your application, read the guidance on:
- how to apply and required documents
How long it takes you to complete the application will depend on your particular situation. You will be able to save your application and come back to it at another time if you need to.
If you are inactive for 25 minutes you will be automatically logged out.
If your visa application allows you to stay in the UK for more than 6 months at a time, as part of the application process, you are also required to apply for a biometric immigration document, commonly known as a biometric residence permit (BRP).
How we use your data
The Home Office will use the personal information you provide to consider your application. We may also share your information with other public and private sector organisations in the UK and overseas. For more detail please see the Privacy Notice for the Border, Immigration and Citizenship system. This also sets out your rights under the Data Protection Act 2018 and explains how you can access your personal information and complain if you have concerns about how we are using it.
You will only be considered for Tier 1 (Investor). You will not be considered for any other type of leave to remain. You must use a different form if you want to stay for another reason.
