Last Entry Date on Visa Vignette Expiring due to COVID-19

Post by nishupandey » Fri Mar 27, 2020 8:50 am

Hi,
I have been granted Tier 2 general dependent Visa. Initially I have received a 30 days Visa Vignette where the last date of entry is mentioned as 12th April,2020. Since it is complete lock down of domestic and international flights from India till 14th April, I will not be able to travel by the date mentioned in the Visa Vignette. Can I request your guidance about the provision in this case.

I can understand there is chargeable "transfer of condition" available but that is applicable in normal circumstances .Is there any special provision of extension on the arrival date ,due to COVID -19 ? Can I enter UK using the same visa vignette ?

Thank You.
Nishu

A host of people are in similar situation. HO has just started providing information about considerations being made to accommodate some changes due to COVID-19, hoping they get to addressing matters about people with vignette that are unable to make entry into UK within the validity.
Keep up with news and do check this forum as the able moderators and or forum members will post when there is such info.

Hi Nishu,

Did you get any further update on the outside UK vignette extension ?

I have sent emails to CIH@homeofffice.gov.uk and it's been more than 5 days with no reply.

The priority for HO at the moment and for who the email address is mainly for, is for those in the UK with expired or soon to expire visas and unable to travel or leave the UK. Those outside the UK applying for or with entry clearance visas are not top priority at this stage.

Hi,

No update over it. no reply from CIH but called on helpline number. After 1 and a half hour got connected and got a reply that there is no provision/extension made for such case yet. Will be updated on gov site once something comes up.

Do keep posted of any update you get.

Thanks

Hi,

Can you help with when we can apply for visa vignette transfer? Can it be applied after last entry date expires?
