UK visitor visa

Visitor Visas

There are many reasons why people might want to visit the UK: for example tourism, to visit friends or family, to attend an important event, or to attend a business meeting or conference. There are also various specialised categories for visitors: for example sportspeople, entertainers, recipients of private medical treatment, short course students, academic researchers, and a few others.

People from some countries (eg US, Brazil, Japan) can visit the UK without a visitor visa but people from other countries (eg India, Iran, China) must obtain a visitor visa before they can come here, and the applicant must submit the visa application to the relevant British diplomatic post. But in either case the person must show that they meet the requirements for a visitor.

A visitor can only stay in the UK for a limited period; in most cases there is a six-month limit. And in all cases the visitor must demonstrate that they genuinely intend to return home at the end of the visit – ie that they are a “genuine visitor”. With minimal exceptions visitors cannot switch to other kinds of visa in the UK.

And all visitors must prove that there will be sufficient finance and accommodation for them in the UK. If the visitor will be staying with friends or family this may be easier. But if not they will have to show that there will be hotel accommodation available which they can afford. In all cases the visitor must show that they will be able to afford the air fares.

There is no English language requirement for visitors.

If you need to apply for a visitor visa the visa application must be made online and submitted electronically to the British diplomatic post, and then the supporting hardcopy documents must be submitted.

We can prepare your visitor visa application for you, prepare a cover letter for the application, and give you detailed advice about the supporting documents you need to make the strongest application.

  • review rating 5  A great service provided from very professional team. I applied spouse visa after Our visa refused due to my first Solisitor mistake about documents. I came to The Get UK Visa team and received very good service and they showed everything I should know and about documents without any rush and mistake. I already applied for appeal and I was so confused about next step, they really helped me and without any extra charge we withdraw our appeal and apply again. My wife visa granted a few weeks after and I’m so happy about future. I really really appreciate to Adel that was so helpful and compassionate like a brother.
