  Extending a visa If an individual already has leave in the UK and planned to remain and apply to extend their leave when it expired, they must continue to do this.  No individual who is in the UK legally and whose visa expired after 24 January 2020, or is due to expire, will be regarded as an overstayer or suffer any detriment in the future if they cannot  leave the UK because of travel restrictions related to COVID-19.

Updated 21 April 2020 With lives at risk, jobs lost, and people under temporary confinement, marriage may be the last thing on many people’s minds. However for those here on a 6 month fiancé(e) visa who cannot marry due to closure of Registry Offices in Scotland (and likely in England and Wales too), this is an additional concern.
