I am extending my visa to write up a thesis, do I need a new ATAS?
If your course requires ATAS and you need to extend your visa to write up a thesis, the date on which your original visa was issued determines whether you need to apply for a new ATAS certificate:
- Visa issued before 30 November 2007: you don't need to apply for ATAS
- Visa issued on or after 30 November 2007: you must apply for ATAS
