Family Visits to the UK

If you need help getting a visa to visit family in the UK, our immigration lawyers can guide you through the process and provide legal guidance in complex cases, particularly where you have faced past refusals.


Who can visit the UK?

Anyone can apply to visit the UK, but some nationalities require prior entry clearance (a visitor visa) before travelling even for a short period. UK visitor visas are normally valid for six months and permit multiple entries into the country.

To be able to travel to the UK on a visitor visa, you must:

  • intend to leave at the end of your visit;
  • plan to stay for no more than six months;
  • be able to support and accommodate yourself without working;
  • be able to meet the cost of your return journey.

What our clients say…

The long road to permanent residence

Me and Fady want to thank you and your team for helping us throughout the past 8 years with Fady's immigration issues and finally getting him to live a life without worries and struggles. We just came back from Egypt where we visited his family after 8 years of Fady not seeing them. This wouldn't have been possible without your help and who knows where we would be today if it wasn't for you helping us.

Successful family visa applications following two earlier refusals

[T]he moment I talked to you, you gave me great confidence in you and when I read the covering letter, I was extremely impressed by the way you presented my case. I only made three main phone calls to Latitude and the advice I received from you was quite clear and was without a shadow of doubt...

You’re a great team and I thank you all for your time and effort which helped me to join my family after 20 months of stress due to two visa refusals from May 2017 onwards, and a 7 months separation from my family since June 2018.
