These are extraordinary times and the Government has been clear no one will have a negative outcome through the immigration system due to circumstances beyond their control.

The Government is doing all it can to protect jobs and has announced a range of measures to support sponsored workers in Tier 2. Details are published on Gov.uk at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-immigration-and-borders

We will keep our policies under review and a dedicated coronavirus immigration helpline has been set up to help those who have been affected by the current situation.
