Applicants: Reminder pilot launches today

08 April 2013

From today (9 April 2013), the Home Office is launching a pilot, in partnership with Capita, which will remind individuals whose permission to stay in the UK is due to expire that they must either apply for further leave, or depart from the UK

As part of the pilot, Capita will make contact with a randomly selected sample group of migrants whose leave to remain in the UK will expire in June 2013. These migrants will receive a letter, email or SMS reminding them to either apply for further leave to remain in the UK, or to make plans to dep... art before their permission to stay expires. They will receive further reminders 1 month, and then 7 days before their leave expires.

We will continue to work closely with Capita to ensure information provided is accurate. If we receive evidence to show that an individual's leave is not due to expire in the next 2 months, they have already applied to extend their leave, or they have left the UK we will update our records.

If you have been contacted by Capita and wish to speak to an advisor please call 0844 375 4646 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
