Can I extend my Tier 2 visa?

In most cases you will be able to extend your Tier 2 visa from inside the UK, up to a maximum period of 6 years in this category; the applicant is usually eligible for settlement upon completion of 5 years. The Tier 2 (Inter-Company Transfer) visa is an exception to this rule and only allows leave up to a maximum of 5 years, although this is not a route that leads to settlement.
