Tier 1 Entrepreneur Processing Time (Visa after 10 months)

Post by arvind_2443 » Fri Mar 10, 2017 12:05 pm

I am very pleased to announce that I have received my Tier 1 entrepreneur visa extension after 10 months.
Tha application was for me and my partner

Application date: 05/2016
Interview: 08/2016
Pre action letter (paid £100 to solicitor): 03/2017
Visa granted (BMR cards) : 03/2017 (with in a week of Pre action letter)

I will advice everyone who has received their Tier 1 Ent. extension, to continue with their business like 2 employees, VAT on time, Corporation tax on time, to avoid any disturbance during ILR.

I will also advice not to forget the minimum balance for at least 90 days (the mistake i made), at the time of ILR.

Thank you

can you comment why it took so long. You mentioned 90 days, I assume you didnt have correct maintenance so how did u overcome that?

Thanks Zamaha - A pre action letter is a reminder to UKBA and they have to make a decision for your application in 14-21 days. Ask your solicitor to prepare it. You can also email your local MP and seek advice for your plea. I will recommend pre action letter. All the best.

I have no idea why it took so long. I did a mistake. I thought that if i am investing 50k i don't need to maintain money for 90 days. Since my spouse visa was dependent on me, so roughly i need to maintain over 1600 GBP in my account for 90 days. I was running short of 5 days:

1) Went back to India and i had few funds available in Indian account (Indian bank should be under guide lines of UKBA)
2) had a letter from Indian bank manager that i had all access for funds (for those deficit 5 days)
3) OANDA currency conversion letter that proves that INR amount is equivalent to 1600 GBP for 5 deficit days.
4) Original Indian bank passbook
5) Indian bank money should not be pension or any benefit amount

Hope this helps - Thanks

Hi
Just wondering if anyone else is still waiting who applied in May/June and had an interview in the middle?

Also is anyone here who received a visa after 9/10 months of waiting?
Thanks
