Switch to this visa
You may switch to the UK Startup Visa before your current UK Immigration visa expires, provided you meet the UK visa requirements and you’re already in the UK on one of the following visas :
- Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur)
- Any Tier 2 visa
- Tier 4 (General) Student Visa
- Standard Visitor Visa – if you came to the UK to get funding and had a supporting letter from an endorsing body.
In addition, you must meet all UK visa requirements.
