Family Visit Visa (Standard Visit)

There are many reasons someone might want to visit the UK. Depending on your nationality and the purpose of your visit, you might require a visit visa to come to the UK. Our specialist immigration team specialise in helping individuals with applications for UK visas.

Only nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland need to apply for a UK Visa as family visitors. The reasons might include visiting family, doing business, to get married or for medical reasons.

You can apply for a Standard Visitor visa if you want to visit the UK:

For leisure, for example on holiday or to see your family and friends

You must also be able to show that:
  • You are 18 or over
  • You intend to visit the UK for no more than 6 months
  • You intend to leave the UK at the end of your visit
  • You have enough money to support and accommodate yourself without working or help from public funds, or you and any dependants will be supported and accommodated by relatives or friends
  • You can meet the cost of the return or onward journey
  • You are not in transit to a country outside the ‘Common Travel Area’

Generally, applicants get six months to stay in the UK but those applying as academic visitors or parents of children at school in the UK can stay for 12 months at most.
You can apply for an extension of up to the maximum of 6 months if your original application was for less. You can also apply to come to the UK as a domestic worker for up to six months. There is no right of appeal against the refusal of an application for entry clearance as a Family Visitor and the refusal can only be challenged by way of Judicial Review. An application for permission to apply for Judicial Review must be lodged within 90 days of the date of the refusal of the application.

  • I’ve been dealing with Rosie for a few months now, after withdrawing from a property we continued to use her for the purchase of our new one. Rosie’s changed my perception of solicitors as she always acted in my best interests, always responds very promptly to any questions (regardless of how silly). I will certainly be recommending Rosie to friends and family. I’m sure we will have dealings in the future. Value for money is seconded to none. 
    Thanks again

  • We recently used DV Solicitors for the purchase of a commercial property. Mr Nasar Ali was our solicitor. It isn’t easy with any commercial mortgage especially Lloyds but as Mr Ali’s experience showed he was excellent from start to finish. Always keeping us up to date with what was happening. Probably have about 30+ emails from him lol. Great guy, excellent service, very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use and definitely recommend. 👍

  • We have used Deo Volente for the first time rewriting our wills and making changes to property ownership. Ms Farida Ahmed talked us through the process by telephone in a friendly and helpful manner. Based on our experience I would use their service again and would recommend them.
