UK visitor visas are normally valid for six months and permit multiple entries into the country. You can find out more about who needs to apply for a visit visa and what sort of activities you can do in the UK on our Visiting the UK information page.

Who can apply for a Visit visa?

Only ‘Visa Nationals’ need to apply to visit the UK for up to 6 months at a time. A list of Visa National countries can be found here in, Appendix Visitor: Visa national list. If your country is not mentioned in this list, you can visit the UK visa-free for up to 6 months. However, you may need to carry important documents with you if you are a Non-Visa National coming to the UK to carry out certain activities, such as performing at a festival or speaking at a conference. More information can be found in our Visting the UK information page (link?).

To be able to travel to the UK on a Visit visa, you must be able to show that:

  • You intend to leave the UK at the end of your visit;
  • You do not plan to stay for more than six months;
  • You are able to support and accommodate yourself without working;
  • You are able to meet the cost of your return journey home.
