Switching from Tier1 General into Tier 1 Investor

Post by mehdiyhi » Tue Feb 15, 2011 10:27 pm

Hi, appreciate if somebody clarify this: I entered into the UK under HSMP visa and continue-sly worked and working until now in a high skilled position. Extended my visa under Tier 1 (general) in 2009 and has to do another extension in 2012 in order to make total five years/to obtain indefinite leave in 2013. I'm thinking to switch into the investor visa ( as I can do it with my available funds). Should I decide to obtain investor visa will my timing under tier general be counted when i suppose to obtain indefinite leave or not? And what are the other restrictions would impact? Thanks

    (ii) as an Investor.

Thanks for this. I understood this should be considered as "negative"
