THE FAMILY VISIT VISA FOR THE UK HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE STANDARD VISIT VISA. THE INFORMATION BELOW STILL APPLIES BUT THE APPLICATION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE STANDARD UK VISIT VISA.

Visiting  family in the UK only requires a Family Visitor Visa. The basic requirements are as follows:

  • You’re visiting a family member in the UK;
  • You’re from outside the EEA (European Economic Area).

You can apply for a UK visitor visa up to 3 months before your date of travel to the UK.

Also, you can stay in the UK for 6 months on a Family Visitor Visa or is possible to apply to extend your visa up to 6 months if it’s for less than 6 months. There are a number of pitfalls in applying for a Family Visitor Visa. Our trained Specialist Immigration Lawyers will take you through the process simply and efficiently.

Some other tips is to apply for a multiple entry family visit visa if you have been granted entry clearance 2 or 3 times before. Additionally, your chances of success increase if you have travelled to Tier 1 countries such as the US, UK, France, Belgium, Canada and a select few other countries. Please read the guide to the right for more info.

Once instructed, we will provide you with a full family visit documents request list. To start your application, please complete our UK Visit Visa form and then a member of the UK immigration team will be in touch to discuss your application with your advisor. Alternatively, you can schedule a immigration consultation to discuss your requirements:
