I am currently outside of the UK and unable to return. Am I able to extend my leave from outside of the country using the Covid-19 extension form?

The Home Office website has confirmed that a short break in continuous residence will be overlooked if you are unable to travel back to the UK to extend your leave. However it is advisable to make every effort to return as soon as possible and submit an in-country application.

If you are currently outside of the UK, and your leave is expiring, please contact one of our experts to discuss your options.
