Tourist Visa

The UK Standard Visitor visa welcomes non-EEA visa nationals for tourism, business, short courses, and approved activities. Securing this visa involves fulfilling specific requirements, substantiating intentions, and providing essential documentation.

Eligibility Requirements

To meet eligibility of Standard Visitor Visa, you must demonstrate: 
  • Departure Intent: Clear intention to exit the UK within six months, without exceeding the stipulated period. 
  • Purpose of Visit: Substantiate your planned activities in the UK, encompassing business engagements and other approved endeavours. 
  • Financial Capability: Display the ability to fund your round-trip journey, covering travel expenses. 
  • Sufficient Funds: Exhibit access to ample funds for self-support and accommodation during your stay, without resorting to public funds

Documentation Requirements

Approval necessitates furnishing pertinent details, including passport numbers and valid travel identification. Non-English/Welsh documents require certified translations. Additional essentials include: 

  • Travel Itinerary: Precise travel dates and plans. 
  • Immigration History: A record of past international travel, complying with UK visa regulations. 
  • Financial Estimate: Estimation of trip costs, substantiated by bank statements. 
  • Contact Information: Overseas contact details and address. 


While knowing the requisites is important, executing them effectively is crucial. Stricter immigration rules lead to many rejections due to inadequate documentation.  If you have any confusion during your application for the standard visitor visa, just get in touch.
