Coronavirus - ситуация с визами - новости
#1
Возникла ситуация, когда есть иммиграционная виза в Великобританию, а прилететь не получается, т.е. из-за коронавируса отменены все рейсы.

Home Office дал автоматическое продление виз/BRP гражданам Китая, чьи визы заканчиваются в том случае, если эти лица находятся в Великобритании.

Но что же делать тем кто, например, получил визу жены и не может въехать в Великобританию из Украины (все рейсы отменяются с 17 марта 2020 года). Как известно, рабочие, студенческие и др. иммиграционные визы выдаются на период в 30 дней для въезда в Великобританию, чтобы потом, на территории Великобритании, забрать долгосрочную BRP карточку.

Пока никакой информации из Home Office нет.

По мере поступления информации я буду выкладывать ее здесь.

Только что брал слот на сдачу биометрики клиентке на следующий понедельник в Лондоне.

Вчера брали слот другой клиентке в Шотландии на эту субботу.

Пока слоты есть.

COVID19 and the Home Office - Immigration

A bit of "fun" today - messages from Sopra Steria first cancelling the client's biometric and then sending the email to say that we need to ignore the previous Email (Central London Premium Lounge):

EMAIL 1

Dear Applicant,

Due to Library closures initiated by Local Authorities, your UKVI appointment has been postponed. We have reallocated you a new appointment in approximately 6 weeks from your current booking date.

Your new appointment date and time will be available to view via your UKVI account within the next 24 to 48 hrs.

Please log into your UKVI account after the above date period to view your new appointment.

Should your allocated location remain closed beyond your new appointment date, we will look to reallocate you to a further date should this occur. Please continue to monitor your email and online account for further updates to your booking.

If the appointment offered is not suitable, you will be able to cancel this appointment via the online booking system, however please note that you will be required to rebook an alternative appointment through the online booking system by selecting an alternative date and location.
Due to the high number of postponed appointments, we are unable to guarantee alternative appointment availability or look to reschedule appointments via our helpline. This can only be done through the online booking system.

Sopra Steria and your Local Authority Libraries are continuously following advice from the Government to ensure public safety. We appreciate that during this time of uncertainty, your visa application may be delayed. We assure you that we are working closely with the Home Office to inform them of any delays to your application process.
Yours sincerely
UKVCAS Customer Services


EMAIL2

Hi,

Please ignore previous email. All appointments in Mark Lane Premium Lounge today will be going ahead
Yours sincerely
UKVCAS Customer Services


The UKVAC's response to the client's query in relation on what to do - the EC (Appendix FM) is expiring during the flight ban:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

Thank you for contacting UK Visas and Immigration International Contact Centre.

With regards to your enquiry, I am sorry, there is no official information about your enquiry, but you can follow the UK official web site - Coronavirus (COVID-19). https://www.gov.uk/

In theory, you will not get a refund if your visa application is successful but you do not come to the UK, https://www.gov.uk/healthcare-immigratio...on/refunds

Vignette transfer usually delays your entry period by another 3 months, https://www.gov.uk/transfer-visa

Alternatively, if you wish, you can go through a complaint procedure via the link below, visit https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati...-procedure

Regards,
Yang

23 March 2020 - Part 2 – Just useful and interesting UK & EEA Immigration Law news and updates from the Legal Centre – Open 7 days a week - www.legalcentre.org - +44(0)3300010342, +44(0)7791145023 (WhatsApp/Viber)

>>> Coronavirus and UK Immigration Update

First Tier Tribunal

The Fisrt Tier Tribunal (FTT IAC) is currently processing the adjournment of cases from Wednesday, the 25th March, onwards, and notifying lawyers and appellants of the same.

Subject Access Requests (SARS)

These can now only be made by email and only electronic records will be provided.

From the UK BA:

"With immediate effect, following the Government’s recent advice, we have instructed all staff to work from home if they can.

This means we can only process SARS made online and provide data held in electronic records (no Home Office Files can be processed). We are not able to process postal requests or correspondence until further notice.

Message from Sopra Steria - biometrics enrollments are still operational - yet follow the web-site

"It is important we share updates as quick as possible and given the recent announcements by HM Government I am writing to explain how these changes may affect our services and what we are doing to meet these unprecedented challenges.

We continue to monitor the well-being of our agents; to support the safety of applicants using our centres and to assess the performance of our operations to deliver appointment availability by minimizing any potential disruption to our service. As part of these regular daily reviews we are updating our UKVCAS website with important information on a daily basis regarding appointment capacity, which may include sites closures across our network for defined periods."

UKVCAS Sites Closure Status: https://www.ukvcas.co.uk/flash-message-d...geId=56249

These are the smaller biometrics enrollment points in the UK for the purpose of the UK Immigration Applications.

The core centres seem to be working fine.

Visas extended util the 31st May 2020 for those currently unable to return home due to COVID-19 : https://www.gov.uk/government/news/visas-extended-for-those-currently-unable-to-return-home-due-to-covid-19?utm_source=e042435d-2e21-4022-a0c4-448c75757472&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications&utm_content=immediate

Обратите внимание на выделенную фразу, а именно КОМУ будут продлеваться визы автоматом и ДЛЯ ЧЕГО. Чуда не произошло.

И поэтому :

"Those who contact the Home Office for these visa extensions will be expected to return to their home countries as soon as possible once flight and border restrictions are lifted."

То есть для тех, кто здесь по рабочей визе, супружеской визе, подает на продление, ПМЖ и т.п. - должны подавать стандартные заявления.

В то же время, временно разрешен нестандартный переход с визы на визу, без выезда из UK:

"People can apply to switch routes, such as from Tier 4 (student) to Tier 2 (General Worker), whilst remaining in the UK. UKVI will continue to process applications as quickly as possible, however some applications may take longer than usual due to COVID-19 related operational pressures."

Детальный анализ - завтра.

Детальная информация по текущий ситуации, т.н. "Guidance": https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-...=immediate

В дополнение к вчерашней новости вот этот пункт вызывает интерес, т.к. в период до 31 мая 2020 года разрешает переход на иммиграционную категорию без выезда за пределы Великобритании:


"If you’re applying to stay in the UK long-term

During these unique circumstances you’ll be able to apply from the UK to switch to a long-term UK visa until 31 May. This includes applications where you would usually need to apply for a visa from your home country.

You’ll need to meet the same visa requirements and pay the UK application fee.

This includes those whose leave has already been automatically extended to 31 March 2020.

You can apply online. The terms of your leave will remain the same until your application is decided."


Но, как всегда, нет четкости и списка кому это можно сделать. Например, подразумевается что возможно перейти с гостевой визы на визу жены британца или рабочую визу, или студенческую визу, или визу престарелого родителя и т.п.
