Exceptional Assurance to End
UKVI have confirmed that Exceptional Assurance (EA) will no longer be granted after 30th November 2022. If you have current permission to stay in the UK with Exceptional Assurance, you may remain until your EA end date. You must make plans to exit the UK on or before your EA end date, to avoid becoming an overstayer. Alternatively, if you have been granted alternative permission to stay, please let us know by completing our Contact Form. Confirmation from UKVI can be found here: Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice for UK visa applicants and temporary UK residents.
