Form to extend a transitional 2-year Tier 2 work visa to a total of 5 years in the UK.
Use this form if you are already in the UK with a Tier 2 visa and you want to extend it once to take it up to a total of 5 years in the UK.
This form is not for every Tier 2 worker. It is specifically for people who switched into Tier 2 under transitional arrangements and were given permission to stay for 2 years. These were workers who switched from:
- a business and commercial work permit
- a sports and entertainment work permit
- a Jewish agency employee
- a member of the operational ground staff of an overseas-owned airline
- a minister of religion, missionary or member of a religious order
