Uk visa extension?


My partner and child arrived in the UK from Laos February 5th on a 6 month standard visa which runs out June 26th.

The visa was valid from December 26th which was when they were meant to fly but flights got cancelled etc over Xmas so come June 26th they wouldnt of been here the full 6 months.

I've read that you can extend your visa so that you have been here a full 6 months (so in our case im assuming that could be August 5) but when I try to extend this online it seems to be for a long term visa rather than just extending for another 6 weeks or so.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how I can do this and if its even possible or Ive misunderstood what I've read on the UK gov website.

Thank you

currently the visa expires on 26 june. so you will have to contact the uk immigration authorities. and do not forget that there could well be restrictions on her flights , even in june.
