Hi sir I had Tier 1 visa but not traveled. It was expired can I use now

Areas of Expertise: 

Public Answer: 

Please could you advise which Tier 1 application you made and the reason that you did not travel prior to your leave expiring. Generally if you have not travelled during the period of time prior to your leave expiring you will not be able to obtain a new grant of leave without making a fresh application. However, there are some exceptions.
