Covid-19 Pandemic – Update for clients

We’re living through unpredictable times, with a constantly changing situation around the COVID-19 virus. We have set up this page to provide our clients with up to date information regarding our operations and updates on UK Immigration guidance.

Our Operations

Following the UK Government advice, where possible our team are working currently from home. We are in a fortunate position, as we normally undertake full case management of client matters electronically on cloud and no physical files are needed. We  have full access to our systems and will continue to offer our clients the same help and support via PhoneEmail, Video Conferencing or Web chat. Our office will remain closed temporarily from 23rd March 2020 until further notice and no face to face meetings will be possible during his time.

UK Visa Extensions

If you’re in the UK and your leave expires between 24 January 2020 and 31 July 2020, your visa will be extended to 31 July 2020 if you cannot leave the UK because of travel restrictions or self-isolation related to corona virus (COVID-19). Please click here to update your records with the Home Office. If you have already had your visa extended to 31 May 2020, your visa will be extended automatically to 31 July 2020.

Clients can now apply from the UK to switch to a long-term UK visa until 31 July 2020 if their leave expires between 24 January 2020 and 31 July 2020. This includes applications where you would usually need to apply for a visa from your home country, but will need to meet the requirements of the route applying for and pay the UK application fee.
