UK Standard Visitor visa required documents

To prove your eligibility for the UK visitor visa, it is important to provide the Home Office with evidence of the general requirements for eligibility as part of your UK visit visa requirements and application. As a non-EEA visa national, you will need to prove that:

  • You have full intention to leave the UK at the end of your visit and do not plan to stay for longer than six months.
  • You have evidence of any activities you intend to perform while in the UK, including business and other activities.
  • You can afford your inward and outward journey including flights.
  • You have access to sufficient funds to support and house yourself and any dependents throughout your stay without accessing or relying on public funds.

Immigration rules are strict, and the Home Office refuses a lot of visas because of a lack of supporting evidence. Visit visa requirements for UK travel can be confusing, but we at Rex Law Chambers are always on hand to provide guidance and assistance when you need it.

To have your visa approved, you will need to give details about your current and previous passport numbers or an alternative valid travel identification. Also, if any of the supporting documents are not in English or Welsh, the documentation needs to be accompanied by a certified translation.

Additional documents you might need to provide can include:

  • Travel documents that detail the dates on which you plan to travel.
  • An immigration record and history of international travel. Visa UK laws require a lot of information to be provided.
  • An estimate for the cost of your visit as well proof of sufficient funds such as bank statements.
  • Your overseas contact details and address.
  • Details of any overseas employer company for which you are travelling to the UK.

There is no limit to the amount of supporting evidence that can help prove your eligibility and support your case. If you feel a little overwhelmed and want some support in putting your application together then look no further and get in touch with us. We at Rex Law Chambers are fully qualified and well experienced to deal with UK visitor visa applications. We believe that no one is better placed to help guide you to visa approval.
