When extending your Tier 1 General Visa you have the option whether to send your application off via post or to secure a same day appointment, and get your visa renewed on the day. Same day appointments are highly sought after, and with demand well exceeding supply it’s highly advised you make appropriate arrangements well in advance of your desired appointment date. We’re sometimes able to secure appointments at extremely short notice, so if you’re nearing the expiration of your current Tier 1 visa, we still may be able to assist you in securing that same day appointment date you require.

The entire process is based on the points scored by the applicant based on their performance in various areas of assessment.
