    This is advice for visa customers and applicants in the UK, visa customers outside of the UK, and British nationals overseas who need to apply for a passport affected by travel restrictions associated with coronavirus.

    If you’re in the UK

    You are expected to take all reasonable steps to leave the UK where it is possible to do so or apply to regularise your stay in the UK. You are allowed to access Visa and Immigration services as these are considered an essential public service. You must follow current COVID-19 rules for where you live, in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

    If you intend to leave the UK to return to a country or territory but have not been able to do so and you have a visa, leave, or ‘exceptional assurance’ that expires before 31 January 2022 you may request additional time to stay, known as ‘exceptional assurance’.

    This is for individuals whose country of residence is red-listed or exceptional cases where you may be unable to return to a country or territory where that nation has closed its borders or where quarantine facilities are temporarily over-subscribed.
