UK Visas: Tier 1 Visa (General)

The Tier 1 (General) category was closed to new applicants on 5th April 2011.  However existing HSMP and Tier 1 (General) visa holders may apply to extend their visas up to 5 April 2015.

What points you have to score to extend your HSMP or Tier 1 (General) visa.

To extend your Tier 1 (General) visa you must score the same number of points that you were required to score when you originally applied, so a total of 95 or 100 points, as follows.
