Coronavirus (COVID-19) UK Visa Extensions

Coronavirus (COVID-19) UK Visa Extension Solicitors

In light of Covid-19 the Home Office have issued new guidance for UK visa applicants and temporary UK residents.

If you’re in the UK and your leave expires between 24 January 2020 and 31 May 2020 your visa will be extended to 31 May 2020 if you cannot leave the UK because of travel restrictions or self-isolation related to coronavirus (COVID-19).  You must contact the Coronavirus Immigration Team to update your records if your visa is expiring.

During these unique circumstances the Home Office have also said that you can apply from the UK to switch to a long-term UK visa until 31 May. This includes applications where you would usually need to apply for a visa from your home country.

You’ll need to meet the same visa requirements and pay the UK application fee.

Our Immigration Law Specialist is on hand to advise and assist you in updating the Home Office and making an application to switch to a long-term visa.

Immigration is a complex area of law and we can help you navigate the requirements of the Immigration Rules so that you get it right.

Contact specialist Immigration Solicitor Deborah Linford to book an appointment.
