Application from outside the UK: The validity period of the vignette visa sticker is extended to 90 days
Although not all UK visa application centres located outside the UK are fully open yet, and they are only gradually re-opening, however, the following rule comes into force from today and will be in effect until the end of this year.
If your 30 day visa to travel to the UK for work, study or to join family has expired, or is about to expire, you can request a replacement visa with revised validity dates free of charge until the end of this year.
To make a request, contact the Coronavirus Immigration Help Centre by email [email protected] in English language. You’ll need to include your name, nationality, date of birth and your GWF reference number with ‘REPLACEMENT 30 DAY VISA’ in the subject line.
You’ll be contacted when our VACs reopen to arrange for a replacement visa to be endorsed in your passport.
From 15 June 2020 your replacement visa will be issued and valid for 90 days.
You will not be penalised for being unable collect your BRP while coronavirus measures are in place.
This process will be in place until the end of 2020.
