Windfarm Concession – EXTENDED

Today’s news of the wind farm concession being extended until 30th April 2023 for foreign nationals who are joining vessels engaged in the construction and maintenance of offshore wind projects in UK territorial waters will be a welcome relief to many. However, it may be bitter sweet for some organisations, who are left feeling like they have been penalised for being prepared and already spending time, effort and cost on alternative visa options that will be irrelevant for the next 6 months.
