British Foreign Office: Visas extended for Ukrainians unable to return home due to COVID-19.

Visa nationals who cannot return home due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be able to extend their visa, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has reported.

“Visa nationals who cannot return home due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be able to extend their visa. This will last until 31 May but will be kept under regular review in case further extensions are needed,” reads a statement.

A dedicated COVID-19 immigration team has been set up within UKVI to make the process as straightforward as possible. Anyone in this situation just needs to contact this team, via this email address, to let them know their visa has expired and they will be issued with an extension.

Those who contact the Home Office for these visa extensions will be expected to return to their home countries as soon as possible once flight and border restrictions are lifted. No immigration enforcement action will be undertaken during this time for those who email the Home Office as outlined above.

On March 23, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the introduction of serious restrictions in the country over the coronavirus outbreak.

In addition, Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers introduced the emergency situation regime in the entire territory of Ukraine to prevent the spread of Covid-19 until April 24.

As of March 25, Ukraine had 145 laboratory-confirmed coronavirus cases, including five deaths. One patient recovered.
