UVIC律师解读:

由于新冠状病毒导致的访问限制,部分人群可能面临着英国各类签证的多种不确定性。英国内政部就此也做出了应急措施:大多数在英国受冠状病毒疫情影响的人将自动获得签证延期至2020年3月31日

 

根据以下指导,你可以参照实际情况去判断自己的签证是否会自动延期,或者是否需要与内政部设立的冠状病毒移民专线联系。

 

 01 
在英中国公民签证即将或已逾期

 

移民局官方原文

Coronavirus: immigration guidance if you're unable to return to China from the UK

 

Chinese nationals in the UK whose visa has recently expired or is about to expire

 

If you are a Chinese national in the UK and have been compliant with the conditions of your visa prior to the coronavirus outbreak, your leave will be automatically extended to 31 March 2020 if your visa has an expiry date between 24 January 2020 and 30 March 2020.

 

You don’t need to do anything to get this extension.

 

You will be subject to the same immigration conditions as your last visa during the extension period.

 

You will not automatically receive a new visa or Biometric Residence Permit card.

 

Your new expiry date (31 March 2020) will be added to UK Visa Immigration’s systems.

 

If you need a status letter confirming this extension, or a new Biometric Residence Permit with a revised expiry date, you should contact the coronavirus immigration helpline.

 

If you have already applied to extend your visa you don’t need to do anything.

 

If you are intending to apply to extend your stay in the UK before 31 March 2020 you should continue to do so.

 

 

如果你是在英国居住的中国公民,并且你现有的英国签证会在2020年1月24日至2020年3月30日之间过期,那么你不需要执行任何操作,你的英国签证会自动延长到2020年3月31日

 

在签证延长期内,你的移民条件与上一次签证条件相同,你不会获得新的签证或者新的生物居住卡(BRP卡)。

 

你延长的签证到期时间(2020年3月31日)会添加到英国移民局(UK Visas & Immigration)的系统档案当中。

 

如果你需要任何信件或者新的生物居住卡(BRP卡)来证明你在英的身份,你需要联系新冠状病毒移民帮助热线:

08006781767(英国时间周一至周五,上午9点到下午5点)

或发送邮件至CIH@homeoffice.gov.uk

 

在此期间,如果你已经递交了有效的续签申请,你无需做任何处理,如果你本身打算在2020年3月31日前递交新的续签申请,你可以按照你的计划继续进行下去

 

 

 02 

在英的非中国籍、非EEA公民的中国长期居民

 

Non-Chinese, non-EEA nationals in the UK normally resident in China

 

If you are a non-Chinese or non-EEA national in the UK but are normally resident in China and your visa in the UK has an expiry date between 24 January 2020 and 30 March 2020 you should contact the coronavirus immigration helpline.

 

The team will be able to extend your visa to 31 March 2020 if you can demonstrate you are normally resident in China.

 

You will be subject to the same immigration conditions as your last visa during the extension period.

 

 

如果你暂时停留在英国,而且你不是中国籍或者欧盟籍,以及你长期居住国家是在中国的话。若你的英国签证是在2020年1月24日到2020年3月30日期间到期,你需要联系新冠状病毒移民帮助专线:

08006781767(英国时间周一至周五,上午9点到下午5点)

或发送邮件至CIH@homeoffice.gov.uk

 

 
 03 
英国爱尔兰签证计划(BIVS)中国持有者

 

Chinese nationals in the UK whose leave was granted by Irish authorities (British Irish Visa Scheme (BIVS)

 

If you are a Chinese national in the UK with a visa that was granted by the Irish authorities and has an expiry date between 24 January 2020 and 30 March 2020 you should contact the coronavirus immigration helpline to discuss your circumstances.

 

 

如果你目前持有的旅游签是通过爱尔兰当局借由英国爱尔兰签证计划(BIVS)批准下来的,并且你的旅游签是在2020年1月24日至2020年3月30日期间到期,你需要联系新冠状病毒移民帮助热线:

08006781767(英国时间周一至周五,上午9点到下午5点)

或发送邮件至CIH@homeoffice.gov.uk

 

 

 04 

在英国境内转换Tier 2签证

 

Switching to a Tier 2 category in the UK

 

If you are a Chinese national in the UK on a Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer visa and want to switch to a Tier 2 General visa you normally need to return to China to make your application.

 

You can exceptionally apply to switch from a Tier 2 Intra-Company Transfer to a Tier 2 General visa from within the UK if your visa has an expiry date between 24 January 2020 and 30 March 2020.

 

You will still need to pay the relevant fee and meet all the requirements of a Tier 2 General visa, other than the requirement that you usually have to apply in China.

 

 

如果你现在是Tier 2 公司内部转移签证(Intra-Company Transfer )持有者,并且你的签证即将在2020年1月24日到2020年3月30日期间到期,若你打算转Tier 2 General,你无需回国,直接在英国境内递交相关申请即可

 

不过你仍然需要满足在中国递交申请的要求,并且支付相应的申请费用。

 

 

 05 

护照在英国签证中心的中国或第三国公民

 

Chinese or third country nationals whose passport is at a Visa Application Centre (VAC)

 

UK Visa Application Centres in China are currently closed.

It is not possible to return any documents to customers until the VACs re-open.

 

You should contact the Chinese authorities or your consular representative in China to get an alternative travel document if you need to travel urgently. An urgent visa request can only be considered if you have a valid travel document.

 

The Home Office is monitoring the situation and as soon as we are able to re-open the VACs we will prioritise the return of all documents to our customers.

 

 

在中国的英国签证中心目前处于关闭中。按照目前的形式,英国签证中心在恢复办公之前无法返还任何材料。如果你在恢复营业之前继续旅行证件出国的话,你需要联系中国相关部门去获取旅行证等替代证件。

 

一旦英国签证中心恢复办公,会优先处理需要返还文件的客户需求。

 

 

 06 

英国Tier 2、Tier 5或Tier 4签证的持有者

 

 

Licensed Tier 2, Tier 4 or Tier 5 sponsors: absences due to coronavirus

 

Some Tier 4 students or Tier 2/5 employees may be prevented from attending their studies or employment due to illness, the need to serve a period of quarantine or the inability to travel due to travel restrictions caused by coronavirus.

 

Sponsors do not need to report student or employee absences related to coronavirus which they have authorised.

Sponsors do not need to withdraw sponsorship if they consider there are exceptional circumstances when:

 

  • a student will be unable to attend for more than 60 days

  • an employee is absent from work without pay for four weeks or more

 

Decisions on whether to withdraw a student from their studies or terminate an employment are for sponsors to make. The Home Office recognises the current situation is exceptional and will not take any compliance action against students or employees who are unable to attend their studies/work due to the coronavirus outbreak, or against sponsors which authorise absences and continue to sponsor students or employees despite absences for this reason.

 

The Home Office will keep this under review, especially if the length of absences mean a potential repeat of period of studies become necessary.

 

 

若你因为中国境内封城导致无法按时回到英国的话,一般情况下你的雇主或者学校无需向home office汇报

 

Home office已经承认此现状为特殊情况(exceptional circumstance),所以如果你因为新冠状病毒事件无法按时回来英国的话,英国内政部不会做任何惩戒行动。不过,你的雇主和学校有权去决定是否要撤销对你的担保。

 

以上便是英国移民局针对疫情做出的应急措施,简单总结来看有以下两点

 
 
 

1. 签证在2020年1月24日-3月30日之间过期,有效期自动延长到2020年3月31日。

 

2. 移民局不会对因疫情导致缺勤的Tier 2、Tier 5或Tier 4签证的持有者及担保方做出惩罚行动,但担保方有权决定是否撤销担保。

 

根据以上两点,UVIC移民律师建议大家:

 

  • 就目前情况来说,各类英国签证持有人无需因为签证有效期的问题焦虑,如果实在无法确定自己属于哪类情况可以直接联系移民局官方热线。

     

  • 不过,Tier 2、Tier 5或Tier 4签证的持有者还是需要及时与雇主或学校确认他们自己出台的疫情应对措施

     

  • 这次出台的新政策并未涵括所有的签证种类及特殊情况,因此未被提及到的人要尽快拨打移民局设立的新冠状病毒移民帮助专线,进行报备
