one year time visa extension has been granted for all MTI participants who have inadvertently been impacted by the pandemic, and not just those whose visas expire by 1/10/20. This offer will also apply to dependents of these doctors. We are aware the Home Office is unable to cover the costs of the visa extension, and in addition the doctor will need to pay the immigration health surcharge at the point of application, however the doctor and their dependents will be eligible to apply for reimbursement from  the DHSC scheme which is due to launch in October. We are collating details of all those doctors eligible for the extension and will send them to UKVI.
