Director of a UK business - Tier 1 Entrepreneur

A business based overseas with a UK presence developed prototypes of electric motors to be used in large vehicles.The client approached us for a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa extension as they had a complication in the fact that the director had not met all the rules.

They had contacted various firms, RE was the only one that found a practical way to extend the visa from within the UK. The Director needed approximately two months beyond his visa status expiration to meet the employment requirement of the rules. RE lodged a “holding application” which allowed
the business and Tier 1 migrant to continue running whilst the decision was pending. He could then continue to employ the required staff and meet the requirements. Once the two
months complete, RE “varied” the application to the desired Tier 1 Entrepreneur extension, achieving a positive result.
