How do I get an extension to give biometrics if I’m a Ukrainian or a family member of a Ukrainian?

You don’t need to contact us to get a new biometric instruction letter or to ask for an extension if you’re either

  • a Ukrainian national, or
  • a family member of a Ukrainian national

Your deadline to give your biometrics will be automatically extended until you can book an appointment and visit a biometrics collection site.

Your application will not be affected if you’re unable to give your biometrics by the expiry date in your biometric instruction letter. However, we can’t process your application without your biometrics.

You need to bring your biometric instruction letter with you when you give your biometrics.
