Fatima Ansari started this petition to home office

Exceptional assurance (i.e. extension of leave in light of problems arising from the global Covid-19 pandemic) has been denied to me, defeating the purpose of this mechanism in the first place. I am unable to travel to my home country India at the moment given the catastrophic second wave of the coronavirus there and the prospect of a deadly third wave. I had requested Home Office for four months' leave, citing it as a requirement by the Dutch High Commission in London where I meant to apply for a work visa to the Netherlands, providing evidence of this requirement in my email. I was denied an extension (on no grounds by the way) - the email said only that according to current policy they could provide an extension only until the end of this month, completely disregarding my special circumstances. I am unemployed, unable to return to India and now without the prospect of work in the Netherlands. Why must extraordinary measures to alleviate some of our extraordinary problems in these terribly challenging times be too much to ask? I now seek your help to make this unfair treatment of my special circumstances dealt with in a manner consistent with the attention it deserves.

If you sign this petition, it will be a nod towards the UK government's increasingly hostile immigration policy and your contribution towards making things fairer for immigrants such as myself. If we garner enough support, I will be enabled to make an application for work at the Dutch High Commission in London without having to thwart that possibility by returning to India, where the Covid-19 crisis is escalating so rapidly I could be prevented from travelling to the Netherlands for what may be a very long time. 

Your signature would mean the world to me, and I would be infinitely thankful for your support.
