Automatic extension of leave for doctors, nurses and paramedics whose leave will expire before 1st October 2020

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the Government has announced that frontline NHS workers will automatically have their leave extended for a year if their leave is due to expire before 1st October this year.

They will not need to pay an expensive Home Office fee, nor the Immigration Health Surcharge.

Their family members will be given the same automatic extensions.
