  • you’re from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland
  • you’re visiting friends or family who aren’t permanent residents in the UK
  • you’re donating an organ to a relative or friend

We assisting with the preparation and submission of a visitor visa application, which can be made up to 3 months before your intended date of travel to the UK. Usually, the decision by the relevant government body is made within 3 weeks of submission.

 

For general visitors, applicants can stay in the UK for up to 6 months.

 

In some cases, visitors may wish to make repetitive trips to the UK over a long-term period. The UK Immigration Rules cater for this requirement and applicants can stay for a maximum of 6 months on each visit, with visas lasting 1, 2, 5 or 10 years.

 

General visitors can also study for up to 30 days, as long as it’s not the main reason for your visit.

 

It should be noted that, whilst on this temporary visa, you are not permitted to:

  • take paid or unpaid work
  • live in the UK for long periods of time through frequent visits
  • marry or register a civil partnership, or give notice of marriage or civil partnership
  • get private medical treatment
  • get public funds

The UK government is becoming increasingly strict on visitors and it is it is important applicants include all the necessary supporting documents in order for the visa to be successful.
