This guidance tells UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and Immigration Enforcement (IE) staff how to consider applications for further leave to remain from individuals granted leave under the Grenfell Tower immigration policy for survivors.

The policy is intended to provide support and stability to those directly affected by the Grenfell tragedy.

It explains:

  • what the requirements were to be granted an initial 12 months’ leave under the dedicated Grenfell immigration policy for survivors of the devastating tragedy before the 31 January 2018 closing date
  • how to consider applications for further leave to remain from those granted leave under the dedicated Grenfell survivors’ immigration policy

This guidance does not cover:

  • anyone outside the UK
  • anyone who does not already have leave under the dedicated Grenfell immigration policy
  • relatives of those directly affected by the fire
