Santa Fe Analysis 

As COVID-19 situation continues to escalate, we recommend all travelers to practice hygiene and safety measures first, and avoid non-essential travels during this time.

If the above policy applies to you, then you no longer need to seek extension of your visa for the time being. For more information, please reach out to your local Santa Fe Consultant.
