If you wish to come to the UK, may it be for a quick holiday, a couple of years of study or permanent settlement, you must get the approval from the Home Office first.
There are a couple of exceptions.
This includes citizens from certain countries who are exempt from the visa requirement if they wish to simply visit the UK for a period for less than 6 months and citizens from the EEA and Switzerland.
Citizens from these countries can currently freely move to the UK, work and study without restrictions on stay.
The Visa Application Process
Applying for a visa can be more complex than you may think.
The Home Office is very strict, as they will refuse a visa on as little as the wrong order of the provided documentation or other minor administrative errors.
You must provide evidence to support all the claims that you make in your application and being caught in a lie on your application forms on supporting documents can land you a prison sentence up to two years.
Another element that causes confusion and frustration is the large variety of visas from which to choose. You must select the visa that is right for you.
If you accidentally choose the wrong type of visa, and as a result not meet all the eligibility requirements, your application will be rejected. Even if you would have been successful on a similar visa for which you do meet all the requirements.
Appealing a Refusal
With certain visas you may be entitled to appeal the Home Office decision. This again is a lengthy process and can take up anywhere between six months and a year.
It is therefore highly recommended to get your first application right.
Each visa application has a different set of requirements with a different application process and tailored application form.
Some visas are easier to apply for than others, however accepting support and guidance from immigration solicitors is advisable in generally most cases.
