eligibility issue for YMV?

Post by far44 » Sun Apr 12, 2020 3:21 pm

I understand eligibility for Tier 5 visa is 30 years. The issue i face is soon i will be 31 and the UK gov has closed all visa processing centers in Australia.Will there any waiver given for time processing centers were closed? I was waiting to get enough money for bank statements but now everything is closed.

Any extension and extra-delay allowed by the Home Office these days are to facilitate the situation of people already in the system. This means people in the UK with specific visas either in hand or with applications in progress.

I don't see them raising eligibility ages in order to take in account the fact that future applicants would have grown older.
