The government encourages visitors to integrate fully into British society if the options of staying here permanently become available. Those who take an active part in the community are now able to obtain citizenship and extend their UK visa.
In order to extend a visa to a work permit, active citizenship must be demonstrated. A migrant worker may volunteer in charitable work or take part in an activity that advances education or health, community welfare or the natural environment. Active citizenship may also be recognised if the person takes part in voluntary work that benefits children, teenagers, or vulnerable groups.
Active citizenship is encouraged before a work permit is presented. This helps integration by encouraging greater contact with society and provides them with new experiences which could then become beneficial.Click Here to Start Your Citizenship
