I am an NHS worker, am I entitled to an automatic extension of my visa?
Frontline NHS workers and their dependents, including midwives, radiographers, social workers and pharmacists, with visas due to expire before 1 October 2020 will receive an automatic one-year extension. Those benefitting from this extension will be identified by health and care employers across the UK.
Any NHS workers who have paid for an unresolved application will be offered the option of a refund. The Home Secretary has also confirmed family members and dependants of healthcare workers who pass away as result of coronavirus will be offered immediate indefinite leave to remain.
