The Home Office has launched a pilot, in partnership with Capita, to 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 depart before their permission to stay expires. They will receive further reminders one month, and then seven days before their leave expires.
The Home Office will continue to work closely with Capita to ensure information provided is accurate. If they receive evidence to show that an individual's leave is not due to expire in the next two months, they have already applied to extend their leave, or they have left the UK, the Home Office will update their records.
