The United Kingdom government allotted just 100 visas to arrive to the United Kingdom last month after visa application centres were temporarily shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the official figures published by the United Kingdom Home Office. #ukvisa2020 #ukimmigration2020 #borisjohnson The statistics compare to an average of over 258,000 a month in the year to March. Three-quarters of those last year were for visit visas, 6% were to work, 7% for other reasons, and 2% were for family. New figures reveal how the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions have intensely stopped the flow of people into the United Kingdom, including business passengers, migrants, refugees, tourists and asylum seekers. According to a Home Office report, the number of travellers coming in the United Kingdom by air dropped from around 7.1 million in January to 3.8 million in March United Kingdom visa applications and decisions have been brutally curbed by the closure of United Kingdom government visa application centres by the end of March 2020. Approximately, 250 applications were submitted in April 2020, and only 100 of them were approved. The stats also show the number of United Kingdom visa extensions in April 2020 was down 77% as compared to 2019. The United Kingdom government not long ago announced foreign nationals unable to go back home due to the Covid-19 pandemic could stay in the United Kingdom until 31 July 2020, however advised United Kingdom temporary visa holders to return home “as soon as it is safe.” According to the latest Home Office report on Thursday, “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the United Kingdom immigration system, both in terms of limiting migrant movements to and from the United Kingdom and the influence on operational capacity”. Asylum applications and initial decisions have also dropped, with only 300 decisions in the first four weeks of lockdown in the United Kingdom. This is approximately one sixth of the level in the month before the lockdown. The majority of the decision-making including interviews were discontinued soon after lockdown, while workforce absence over COVID-19 has also affected processing. Travelling limits meanwhile have reduced asylum seekers’ ability to apply to live in the United Kingdom. Home office officials announced that asylum decisions have now restarted “following the execution of measures to allow for safe working,” and remote interviewing is under discussion. The report also says that in the meantime refugee resettlement has discontinued, with all planned arrivals prior to the crisis withdrawn. The statistics come as the United Kingdom government pursues ahead with a fundamental transformation of Britain’s immigration system. It won a Commons vote on taking Britain out of the European Union’s free movement rules last month. Britain’s ex-immigration minister, Caroline Nokes, cautioned rolling out amends from the start of 2021 endangers leaving shortages in roles on the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Conservative Minister of parliament pleaded the United Kingdom government not to roll out extensive reforms “in a big-bang style in just seven months’ time” as Britain tackles with COVID-19 pandemic.
