Coronavirus has been at the front of everyone’s mind over the past few weeks. It is a scary situation when an illness like this one begins to spread, and it is very easy for people to start thinking the worst and panicking.

 

One thing that has been done to reduce the spreading of coronavirus is the limitation on travel to and from China, the country where the virus is thought to have originated.

 

Due to travel restrictions because of coronavirus some individuals may be facing uncertainty in relation to the expiry date of their current visa or leave to remain in the United Kingdom.

 

Subject to the below guidance which is taken from the Home Office’s website, most people in the UK whose immigration status is affected by the coronavirus outbreak will get an automatic extension of their visa until 31 March 2020.
