UK Tourist Visa

If you are an adult and you want to come to the UK as a tourist or to visit friends, you should apply to come here as a general visitor. If you want to visit members of your family in the UK, you can apply as a family visitor.

To come to the UK as a general visitor, you must be able to show that:

  • you are 18 or over.
  • you intend to visit the UK for no more than 6 months (or 12 months if you will be accompanying an academic visitor).
  • 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' (Ireland, the UK, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands).

During your visit, you must not intend to:

  • take paid or unpaid employment, produce goods or provide services, including the selling of goods or services directly to members of the public.
  • do a course of study.
  • marry or register a civil partnership, or give notice of marriage or civil partnership.
  • carry out the activities of a business visitor, a sports visitor or an entertainer visitor.
