COVID-19 has put the Earth in a situation it has never seen before. With many of the countries having closed their borders, many people are stranded in places that aren’t their “homes”. If you are an Indian citizen in the United Kingdom who couldn’t make it on that last flight, don’t despair. You’re probably a student whose college has been shut, or a visitor on a short term visa.
Indian National Students Association (INSA) UK, has set up a volunteer team on Indian based in the UK. My friend Arun Patil is in this team, that has multi-lingual capability. They’re in touch with the High Commission of India, UK, and the National Health Service (NHS), and in a position to give you reliable advice and guidance.
Please feel free to contact any one in the team for concerns on visa expiry, health, personal safety, accommodation, food, or anything else. They’re reachable on mobile, Whatsapp and email. Timings are UK local time.
Stay safe. Practice social distancing. Once the travel restrictions are lifted, you’ll be back home.
