Immigration issues for international students while in by 5MXmv0J


									How to send your application to the Home Office
You can apply to extend you visa by post or ‘in person’.

ALWAYS keep photocopies of your application form, passport and any
other documents you send.

Applying by post
It costs £295 to apply by post. It may be between four and fourteen weeks before
the Home Office returns your passport (It may take longer in late 2008). Always
send it by Special Delivery post, and keep the grey receipt which the Post Office
gives you safely to show that you have sent your application in time. It is very
important to send your application before your visa ends.

Applying at a Home Office Public Enquiry Office (PEO)
If you apply ‘in person’, this is the ‘Premium’ service, and costs £500. If you
need to keep your passport, you can go to the Home Office yourself and they will
look at most applications on the same day. To go yourself you must first make
an appointment by telephoning the Home Office on 0870 606 7766. You can
either make an appointment to go to the Croydon PEO or the Birmingham PEO.
If you apply at the Croydon (PEO), the Home Office will also ask for your
biometric details, which include fingerprints.

If they give an appointment for a date that is after your visa ends, do not take it.
Contact ISAS tel: 01865 484681 for advice. If you apply too late, you will lose
your right to appeal.

For up to date information about applying in person at each PEO, and how to find
them, go to the Home Office website at click on, ‘Contact’
and ‘Applying in person’.
