9th April 2020
The Secretary of State for the Home Department announced on 24 March 2020, that any foreign nationals who are unable to return home as a result of COVID-19 will be able to extend their visas.
This applies to anyone who’s visas expired after 24.01.2020, and for those who cannot leave due to travel restrictions in their respective countries or self-isolation.
However, you will be required to leave as soon as possible once flight and border restrictions are lifted.
The Home Office have stated that extensions will last until 31 May 2020, and will be updated as necessary. If you are in this situation please contact us on 02034754321 or email us at email@example.com with your details.
Failure to inform the Home Office will result in immigration enforcement actions, and you will be deemed an overstayer. Forced deportation actions will result in a 10-year ban from the United Kingdom.
All other visas and switching
For migrants on any other types of visas, and migrants who are in the United Kingdom long term, you will need to extend your visas before the visa expiry date. Any migrants who are switching visas, the Home Office has expanded in-country switching provisions, and you will still be required to switch your visas before the date of expiry.
Failure to extend visas will result in immigration enforcement actions, and you will be deemed an overstayer. You will be asked to leave the United Kingdom. If forcefully deported, you will face a 10-year ban from the United Kingdom.
