Visit Visa All Types & Family Visits Visa

You can apply for a visitor visa to come to the UK, usually only up to 6 months for the purpose of a temporary visit. There are different types of visas available for the UK, depending on the reason that you are coming to the UK for:

  • Standard visitor visa. 
  • Business visitor visa. 
  • Medical grounds visit visa. 
  • Academic visit visa. 
  • Study visit visa. 

The most important part of a visit visa is that you need to show and prove that you will leave the UK at the end of your visit and not remain in the UK beyond the validity of your stay. The Home Office will look closely at your previous immigration history and your background (whether you’re working or commitments back home).

Understanding Visit Visas and Family Visit Visas

At BPA Immigration Lawyers, we recognise the intricacies involved in navigating the UK’s visit visa framework, particularly when it comes to family visits. The UK offers several types of visit visas, each designed for specific purposes. The Standard Visitor Visa, for instance, is versatile, covering tourism, business, short study periods, and medical treatments. On the other hand, the Marriage Visitor Visa is tailored for those intending to marry in the UK without plans to remain afterwards. Each visa type has distinct requirements and costs, with the Standard Visitor Visa costing £95 for six months, and similar pricing for the Marriage Visitor Visa.

For those looking to visit family members residing permanently in the UK, the Family Visit Visa is specifically designed. This visa requires applicants to prove their relationship with the UK resident, who must be a British citizen or have similar settled status. The application must include a formal invitation from the family member, detailing their relationship and willingness to accommodate the visitor. Importantly, this visa also costs £95 for a six-month period but does not permit work or public fund claims.

Our team at BPA Immigration Lawyers excels in simplifying this complex application process. We provide comprehensive support, from verifying document accuracy to crafting a compelling Letter of Representation. Understanding each visa’s nuances, from the required proofs such as financial stability and genuine visitor evidence to navigating application pitfalls like incomplete forms or discrepancies, is crucial for success.

Common Challenges in Visa Application Processes

Navigating the visa application process can be fraught with challenges that, if not carefully managed, may lead to delays or denials. At BPA Immigration Lawyers, we are intimately familiar with these pitfalls and adept at guiding our clients through them efficiently. Here are some of the most common issues encountered during the application process:

Human Error and Deliberate Deceptions

  1. Human Error: Simple mistakes such as typos or incorrect dates are common but can be significant enough to jeopardise a visa application. These errors often stem from misunderstandings or oversight.
  2. Deliberate Deceptions: More severe are the implications of deliberately deceptive actions, such as providing false documents or failing to disclose previous visa denials. Such actions can lead to immediate visa refusal and potential bans on future applications.

Consequences of Errors

Errors in the visa application can lead to a range of adverse outcomes:

  • Immediate Rejection: Even minor mistakes can result in the refusal of a visa application.
  • Revocation of Visa: If errors are discovered after a visa has been granted, it may be revoked, and the applicant could face a ban on re-entry.
  • Legal Repercussions: Submitting false information or forged documents can lead to legal actions beyond mere application denial.

Incomplete Applications and Insufficient Documentation

  • Incomplete Forms: Failing to complete all sections of the application form accurately is a common reason for visa refusal.
  • Inadequate Documentation: Not providing sufficient documentation to support the application, such as proof of financial stability or a genuine relationship, frequently results in visa denials.
