Visitors apply for visit visas to come to the UK for a variety of reasons. Some may come to visit family or sight-see. Others may want to do business in the UK or receive private medical treatment here.
Visitor visa application process
The application process for visit visas can be complicated and the requirements differ depending on the type of visa sought.
It is important that you seek advice to ensure that an application is made on the correct basis and that the necessary evidence is provided to ensure the best chance of success.
