No individual of any nationality whose leave has expired or is due to expire between 24 January 2020 and 31 July 2020, and who cannot leave the UK because of COVID-19, will be regarded as an overstayer or suffer any detriment in the future.
If you have already had your visa extended to 31 May 2020 your visa will be extended automatically to 31 July 2020, there is no need to resubmit this form.
If you already have leave in the UK and planned to extend your leave when it expires, you do not need to complete this form. Please continue to apply using the appropriate online application form.
If you were not intending to apply to extend your leave and cannot leave the UK because of travel restrictions related to COVID-19, please use the form below to provide us with your details. If you’re eligible for an extension of leave to 31 July 2020, we’ll update your immigration records to reflect your circumstances.
Please complete the form, in English only, with as much information as possible. If you’re unable to provide any of the information or it’s not applicable to you (for instance if you entered the UK without needing a visa), please enter ‘Not known’ or ‘Not applicable’ in the relevant box.
You may wish to take a screenshot of the completed form before submitting it, for your own records.
If your email address is entered correctly, soon after submitting the form you’ll receive an email asking you to confirm your email address. Once that’s done you don’t need to contact the Coronavirus Immigration Helpline or mailbox and we’ll respond to you within 5 working days.
