The maximum stay with as a Skilled worker visa in the UK is up to 5 years and 14 days, or the time given on the issued certificate of sponsorship plus 1 month, whichever is shorter. The applicant needs to make sure that the duration of new CoS does not exceed total of 5 years of his stay in the UK as a skilled worker.

Dependents of Skilled Workers

The dependents of skilled workers already residing in the UK would be able to become part of the main skilled worker’s visa extension application.


Refusal of Leave to Remain

If the further leave to remain application is refused by the Home Office, the applicant is granted right of administrative review that must be exercised within 14 days of the date of service of decision.
