A Tier 2 General visa holder is eligible to apply for an extension of the same as and when the initial visa expires, or a new Certificate of Sponsorship is issued in the name of the applicant. The extension must be applied for within 3 months of receiving the Certificate of Sponsorship from the employer.
The onus of proving this continued eligibility for a Tier 2 General extension is in the hands of the applicant. To be eligible for Tier 2 extension the applicant must have permission to enter or stay in UK and must be present in the UK at the time of applying for extension.
The visa processing for a Tier 2 extension application typically takes around 8 weeks. However, the priority services furnish a decision in 5 working days and the super priority services provide a decision in 1 working day.
The applicant must be mindful to include dependants while applying for extension. The dependants have to provide a submit application but can apply along with the main applicant. The process of a Tier 2 extension is relatively slow and patience is all it takes till the Home Office finally provides a decision.
