My Visa is going to run out during lockdown. What do I do?
Covid-19 continues around the globe, but many have concerns around their visa as it may run out before the pandemic retreats.
With self-isolation, travel restrictions and border closures in force across the globe many whose visa will expire in this time cannot return home.
Home Secretary Priti Patel announced yesterday (24 March) that all visas that have expired since 24 January will be extended until 31 May. This will be under regular review as it is unknown if another extension will need to be granted if Covid-19 continues.
