hi I am currently in a Tier 1 visa. I first obtained my visa in May 2009. I came to the country in May 2009. After that, I could not get a job and left in June 2009. I came back again in November 2010 and have since lived in this country. My first tier 1 extension was submitted in May 2012. It was rejected because I did not show national insurance contributiions. I successfully appealed and got my visa extended in June 2013 until June 2015. Now, I need to extend my visa until Nov 2015 to apply fro ILR. I contacted UKBA who informed that I can submit an extension under FLR(0). does anyone know if this is the proper procedure or shall I get an extension under Tier 1.

Dear Experts
I have a query regarding the Tier1 General Visa extension. Currently I am holding Tier1 General visa valid visa till Feb 2017 but I am short of time to complete 5 years. As now the Tier 1 General is going to close on 6th April 2015, So Can I apply for extension although I am having current valid visa until Feb 2017.
Please need your experts advice. Please give me your good suggestion or any one experienced these days having valid visa for more then a year and get extension for 3 years.

Thanks and waiting for your urgent response.

Hi,

Yes if you think you will be short of five years by the end of current extension, then you must apply asap. I applied in May 2014 for 2nd extension while my 1st extension was expiring in Jun 2015, so I got three years extension till May 2017.

Hello,
I have posted my visa application as stated in my post approximately 1 month back. I have enrolled for biometrics as well. Its seems that most of the members are getting their visas in 2 weeks after biometric enrolment. I still have not received my visa. Even though UKBA/ HomeOffice say that they process the visa within 8 weeks is there any number or email we can enquire about visa.

Thanks

Hi all,

I posted my Tier 1 renewal application on Mar 24th -- using SPECIAL DELIVERY to the COURIER ADDRESS.

It was received and signed by someone on Mar 25th 7:30am.

And it is March 27 today --- so my application has been sitting in the office for 2 days but no payment has been debited on the credit card. I also called them up to see if the application would track on their computerized system but it doesn't yet appear.

I'm a bit concerned as next week is the last week before they close the Tier 1 renewal.

- Anyone else recently posted their application?
- What could I possibly do at this stage?

Any advice would be appreciated!
Thanks
Ash

@ash241

It could take a couple of days for it reflect on your credit card account. You should look whether the credit limit has gone down.
That happens in real time.

@lezzfrancis -- Thanks for the tip! My concern was that the payment hadn't even been attempted in over 3 days - but finally I could see the charge authorization come on Friday afternoon and payment was finally posted on Sat. And I was able to track it real time using what you suggested so thanks for that! :) Appreciate the quick response. Will post my case details over the next few days.
