Minimum Income Requirement concession due to COVID-19

Changes to the minimum income and adequate maintenance requirement


This is the latest update from the Home Office on income requirements for visa applications. The Gov website states the following:


"If you’ve experienced a loss of income due to coronavirus up to 1 January 2021, we will consider employment income for the period immediately before the loss of income, provided the minimum income requirement was met for at least 6 months immediately before the date the income was lost.


If your salary has reduced because you’re furloughed, we will take account of your income as though you’re earning 100% of your salary.


If you’re self-employed, a loss of annual income due to coronavirus between 1 March 2020 and 1 January 2021 will usually be disregarded, along with the impact on employment income from the same period for future applications."


This is a difficult area in normal time COVID just made it a bit harder just like most other things in life these day. We are here to help and support where possible, just reach out.
