Can I extend my Tier 5 visa?
Some categories under Tier 5 allow for the option of extending leave, up to the maximum period (either 12 or 24 months). Applications made under Tier 5 are for ‘temporary workers’, so do not lead to settlement. Examples of workers in this category include charity workers, entertainers, diplomatic staff, and sportspeople. Some categories do not allow you to switch into another route from inside the UK.
