Once you move to the UK, it's easy to think that your immigration worries are over. Unfortunately, the Immigration Rules change on a regular basis and it is important to stay on top of them in order to be able to extend your visa. For example:
- Some visa extensions require different evidence than your initial application;
- Some visa extensions require you to pass a higher level of English language test;
- Additional rules can apply if you have dependent children, and they are now over 16 or 18 years old; and
- Sometimes visa requirements change completely.
If you aren't aware of these changes, you can find yourself in a difficult situation when applying to extend your visa.
