The Home Office has announced a further visa extension until Friday 31 July 2020 for those currently in the UK who cannot return to their home country due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It applies to anyone whose leave expired after 24 January 2020 and builds on the previous extension until 31 May 2020. Anyone needing to extend their visa should contact the Coronavirus Immigration Team and they will be issued with an extension.
Those granted an extension should aim to go home as soon as travel and border restrictions are lifted. In addition, those wishing to switch to a long-term visa such as Tier 4 can do this from within the UK at any time up to Friday 31 July 2020.
