The Home Office has announced that UK visas will be extended for people unable to leave the country due to coronavirus. Home Secretary, Priti Patel, said that the measure has been put in place to ‘reassure foreign nationals that their immigration status in the UK is safe’, while allowing those working in vital services to continue doing their work.
It’s understood that the measure will apply to foreign nationals whose UK visa expired on or after 24 January, 2020. Extended visas will be valid until 31 May, but the Home Office has said that this will be reviewed at regular intervals in case further extensions are necessary.
