If you need further support with obtaining a visa at this time, contact the Visa & International Student Advice team. See the section ‘What visa/immigration support can I access while at King’s?’ for more information.
Do I need to request a new CAS?
A CAS is usually valid for 6 months, so you will need to check if it is still valid. If it has expired, UKVI may still allow you to use it depending on when it was issued.
Contacting your faculty/department
If you are having difficulties returning to the UK, you should inform your faculty/department, in addition to contacting the Visa & International Student Advice team.
