Covid-19 is having an unprecedented impact on our daily lives and commercial operations. The Home Office has published some limited guidance for those whose immigration status is impacted by Covid-19 (see here for individual applications and here for Tier 2, 4, 5) but for businesses and education providers, many immigration questions still remain unanswered.
To assist with queries on all aspects of corporate immigration, including sponsor compliance, visa extensions, right to work checks, Tier 4 and the movement of people, we have launched the following Covid-19 response hotlines:
|Opening hours||Telephone number|
|Businesses||Daily from 2-4pm||+44 (0)20 7457 3219|
|Education providers||Thursday from 11am-12pm||+44 (0)20 7457 3143|
We will continue to liaise with the Home Office to make sure that more detailed guidance is published and that the immigration needs of businesses and education providers are not overlooked during this difficult time.
If you need advice, please contact the hotline or your usual Penningtons Manches Cooper immigration adviser. Follow us on Twitter for breaking immigration news.
