Coronavirus Situation; Immigration update

March 30, 2020 1,039

In common with many other firms and businesses we have had to limit our activities because of the current coronavirus situation.

We have had to close our office and stop seeing clients face-to-face.

And the Home Office has temporarily closed its offices in the UK, and many UK visa centres outside the UK have also temporarily closed. However, online communication routes to the Home Office and UK visa centres are still functioning. Online visa applications and British citizenship applications to the Home Office can still be made, and in some cases will need to be made to prevent migrants from becoming overstayers.

But the Home Office has made some special and exceptional arrangements for migrants in some other cases. If your visa is due to expire soon and you are not able to leave the UK because of coronavirus restrictions you can remain in the UK until 31 May 2020 without penalty (but we do not yet know what will happen after this date). And similarly, if your visa is due to expire soon and you want to switch to a different visa category you may be able to do so in the UK even if the application would normally have to be made outside the UK.

Please be assured that Get UK Visa is still operating and many aspects of our work are carrying on as normal. Our team is still working together. You can still contact us by email and telephone, as before. We can still accept instructions for visa applications, British nationality applications, appeals and asylum claims and prepare your case for you.

If you have already instructed us in your case we will continue to look after it as normal and keep you informed about any arising issues.

We hope that the current restrictions will ease in the next month or two, and we will keep you informed about this.

If you have any queries about this do not hesitate to contact us, and please stay safe.

  • review rating 5  I highly recommend GET UK VISA! My experience with them was amazing. They are accessible and honest which makes you feel instantly at ease. Without their help I will probably still be waiting for my husband visa approval. We are definitely pleased and could have not asked for anything more! If you are looking for an affordable and professional lawer, that makes everything run smoothly, then you have found it! I will always recommend GET UK VISA to anyone needing an immigration lawyer.
