From outside the UK
If you are applying from outside the UK, you must apply online. You will be required to have your fingerprints and photograph taken at a visa application in order to obtain a biometric residence permit which is part of your application. Thereafter, you will have to collect your biometric residence permit within 10 days of when you initially stated that you would arrive in the UK.
You will be able to apply while being in the UK if you switch to a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa. You will be able to switch to this visa if you meet the eligibility requirements and you are already in the UK under one of the following categories:
- Tier 1 (General);
- Tier 1 (Investor);
- Tier 1 (Graduate entrepreneur);
- Highly Skilled Migrant Programme;
- Tier 2
Additionally, you can also switch to a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa if you have specific types of funding and you are on Tier 1 (General) or Tier 4.
