Can your visa be extended due to coronavirus?
If you are a migrant in the UK with a leave or visa that expires before 30 septiembre 2021 and intend to return to your home country but haven’t been able to do so due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, you will be able to extend your visa by submitting a request for an exceptional assurance.
What is Exceptional Assurance?
Exceptional Assurance does not grant you leave to remain but acts as a short-term protection against any consequences that may on the other hand arise from overstaying your permission. If your visa allowed you to study, work and rent you will be able to continue to do so during the period of your exceptional assurance.
How do I know that I have been granted Exceptional Assurance?
If your request is successful you will receive an email from the Home Office confirming your exceptional assurance and the date your extension it’s going to terminate.
