Exceptional Talent

Extending your Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) Leave

Extension applications are made to the Home Office.There is only one stage for extension applications.  You should always check the latest guidance before you apply.

If you are applying from inside the UK, you must make a ‘valid’ application.  Further details on how to submit a valid application are provided when you complete your form.

To be approved you must meet the following criteria:

  • The Designated Competent Body thatoriginally endorsed your stage 1 application has not advised the Home Office that this has been withdrawn;and

  • During your mostrecent period of leaveier1 (Exceptional Talent)migrant, you have earned money in the UK as a result of employment or self employment in your fieldof expertise .  This is the field for which the
    Designated Competent Body endorsed you.

As with stage 2 applications, your application will also be subject to General Grounds for Refusal meaning that even if you qualify
under the Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) rules there may be other reasons (such as your immigration history, whether you have previously provided fraudulent documents to the Home Office, whether you have been convicted of a serious crime,etc) thatmay lead to the application being refused. 

Further details on General Grounds for Refusal are available here:
