This will last until 31 May but will be kept under regular review in case further extensions are needed.
A specialized COVID-19 immigration team has been founded within United Kingdom Visa and Immigration (UKVI) to make the procedure as simple as possible. Any individual in this condition is required to just get in touch with this team, via this email address CIH@homeoffice.gov.uk, to inform them about their visa expiration and they will be granted an extension.

This denotes that individuals can apply to switch visa routes, such as from Tier 4 (student) to Tier 2 (General Worker), while staying inside the United Kingdom. United Kingdom Visa and Immigration will carry on processing visa applications as fast as possible, nevertheless few visa applications may take longer than usual due to COVID-19 linked operational difficulties.
Priti Patel stated:
The United Kingdom will keep on putting the wellbeing and health of people first and no one will be penalised for conditions which are beyond their control.
By extending visas, we are providing foreign nationals composure and also making sure that those in essential services can continue their work.
Those individuals who get in touch with the Home Office for these visa extensions will be anticipated to go back to their country of origin as soon as possible once flight and border limitations are cancelled. No immigration enforcement action will commence during this period for those foreign nationals who email the Home Office as mentioned in this video.
Bearing in mind the present recommendation on self-isolation and social distancing, the United Kingdom Home Office is also putting aside a number of obligations on visa sponsors, for example permitting non-EU nationals in the United Kingdom on work or study visa routes to continue their work or study from their home.
