A common question we get is:
“Can I switch to another immigration category?”
Switching’ visa status is where you try to apply for further leave to remain from inside the UK to stay in another visa category. Certain Visa Categories allow you to switch immigration categories under the Immigration Rules. Other do not. Therefore the application you make for variation of leave to remain may not succeed. It is, therefore, important to get this right when switching to another visa category from within the UK.
Switching visa categories in the UK can easily be checked below. Please check whether you qualify to switch to another visa.
