Extension of Visit Visas

Sometimes due to some emergency or urgent situation or any other compelling reasons visitors may need to stay in the UK longer that they initially planned. Compelling reasons may include but not limited to the following factors:

  • Health issues of the visitor
  • Any accident or emergency situation

Generally it is not advisable to seek further leave to remain in the UK when the visitor was issued with entry clearance as a visitor on the basis of his declaration that he will return to his home country within a specific period of time. But at times thing do not occur as planned and due to some unforeseen urgent situations, an application may be made to the Home office to seek further leave to remain.

Making Further Leave to Remain Application

You will need to gather all the relevant documents and the information that has led you to decide to remain in the UK longer than you originally planned. We will assess the probabilities of success of such applications on the basis of those documents and advise you accordingly. You will have to pay the home office fee and the immigration health surcharge.

Probabilities of Success

It all depends on the reasons of your application, the documents and information that you provide and also on any representations made in support of this application. The Home office shall consider all those factors in order to reach on a decision. If the situation is really compelling the home office may consider granting further leave to remain for some time.

Effect on Further Entry Clearance Applications

It does not matter whether your application to extend your stay in the UK is approved or refused, any further entry clearance applications that you may wish to make later would be scrutinized more cautiously by the visa officer (the ECO) to assess whether you are a genuine applicant and would return to your home country as you intend.
