Coronavirus – Immigration and Visas

Thank you for contacting me about immigration and visas as the Coronavirus outbreak continues.

This is of course an unprecedented time and I know the Home Office is working hard to ensure people are not unfairly affected by circumstances beyond their control. You may be pleased to know that the Government is keeping family immigration requirements under review and this includes the minimum income requirement. I have been assured that Ministers will make adjustments where it is necessary.

I understand that the Government has already introduced measures to support and help those with immigration status. If an individual is in the UK and their leave is expiring, their visa will be extended to the 31 May 2020 they are unable to leave the UK due to travel restrictions or self-isolation relating to Coronavirus.
