The Entrepreneur visa is now closed for new applicants seeking entry under this route. However, those who are already in the UK with leave as a Tier 1 Entrepreneur or dependent family member of a Tier 1 Entrepreneur can extend their visa until 5 April 2023.

Applications for extension or settlement can be made by a single Entrepreneur or two individuals as part of an Entrepreneur team if they had previously been granted leave as an Entrepreneur team.
