Syrian nationals – Renewal of the immigration concession

Syrian Renewal

Until 28 February 2015, the Government has renewed the immigration concession for Syrian nationals.

There are two options available to you, if you are a Syrian national and your permission to stay in the UK (leave to remain) is about to expire, or has expired in the last 28 days, and you wish to stay in the UK:

Extend your visa – If you are here on a visa for a limited period you can ask for this to be extended for the same length of time as you were originally granted. For example, if you have a 6 month visit visa, you may be given permission to stay for a further 6 months.

Switch into a different visa category in the UK – Normally you would be required to leave the UK to switch to another visa category. Under this concession you may apply to switch from inside the UK. There are restrictions on which categories you can apply to switch into. You cannot switch into any settlement routes.

You must meet the requirements of the category that you are applying under. You must apply whilst your current visa is valid or within 28 days of it expiring and pay the correct fee applicable for that route.

<< If there are any documents which you would normally be expected to provide, but you cannot because of the conflict in Syria, then you should explain why in your application. >>

Don’t travel if is not safe. Syrian nationals are also advised to monitor the travel advice for Syria, and make arrangements to return only when it is safe to do so.
