Standart Visitor Visas

A Standard Visitor Visa is a non-immigrant visa for a foreign national who wish to visit the UK for a specific period of time. A foreign national can visit the UK for: tourism (i.e. on a holiday or to see family and friends); certain business activities (i.e. attending a meeting); to do a short course of study (i.e. language course); to take part in research or an exchange programme as an academic; and for medical reasons (i.e. to receive private medical treatment). This type of visa does not allow the visitor to switch another type of UK visa. A foreign national can only extend their stay under a Standard Visitor Visa for specific reasons, such as needing further private medical treatment.
Standard Visitor Visa can be granted for up to 6 months. However:
— If you are coming to the UK for private medical treatment – it can be granted for up to 11 months; or
—If you need to visit the UK regularly you can apply for a Long-Term Standard Visitor Visa that lasts 2, 5 or 10 years. However, you can stary for a maximum of 6 months on each visit.
