Due to the current pandemic processing ability and times have become unknown. This measure will ensure that students and employees can continue in their respective fields whilst applications are decided.

You must meet the following criteria to be eligible;

You can start work/studies before your visa application has been decided if:

 You have been assigned a CoS or CAS. you submitted your application before your current visa expired
