Home Office Grenfell immigration policies

Survivors’ policy

The deadline for the Grenfell survivors’ immigration policy scheme has now passed. However, if you were directly affected by the tragedy, then we want to help and support you. If you think you would have been eligible for the scheme and have a good reason for not coming forward before 31 January 2018, you can discuss your circumstances with the Home Office. The Home Office will not use this tragedy as a reason to conduct immigration checks on those who have been directly affected by the tragedy.

The Grenfell survivors’ immigration policy is available on GOV.UK.

Relatives’ policy

Relatives of those directly affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy, may be able to extend their stay in the UK for up to six months at a time if they have core participant status in the Grenfell Public Inquiry.

The Grenfell relatives’ immigration policy is available on GOV.UK.

Further information

You will not have to pay an application fee to extend your stay under the Grenfell immigration policies.

Information and announcements on the Grenfell immigration policies.

If you don’t qualify for leave under the Grenfell survivors’ or relatives’ policies, you may wish to consider whether you are eligible to make an application under the Immigration Rules if you wish to remain in the UK. You may also wish to consider whether you would be eligible to apply for leave on the FLR (HRO) application form to remain in the UK under our existing leave outside the Rules policy, which caters for exceptional circumstances.
