Extension of 30 Day Visa

People whose 30 day visa for work, study or to join family has expired or about to expire, can request a replacement visa with revised validity dates free of charge until the end of this year. The replacement visa will be valid for a period of 90 days which suggests that the replacement visa could itself be replaced before the end of the year.

Updated advice for accommodation providers

Businesses providing holiday accommodation can now provide rooms to those required to self-isolate because they have arrived in England from outside the UK, or arrived in England from elsewhere in the UK but have within the preceding 14 days been outside the UK. Accommodation for these purposes should adhere to the same guidelines as for other permitted stays, including on social distancing and cleaning.
