Visas extended for those currently unable to return home due to COVID-19
Tuesday 24th March 2020
The extension, announced today (24 March 2020) by the Home Secretary Priti Patel, will apply to anyone whose leave expired after 24 January and who cannot leave the country because of travel restrictions or self-isolation.
This will last until 31 May but will be kept under regular review in case further extensions are needed.
To help those who want to apply for visas to stay in the UK long-term, the Home Office is also temporarily expanding the in-country switching provisions.
