UK Visitor/tourist Visa: Requirements and Application Process

- Parents’ names and dates of birth (if known)
- Income information (if applicable)
- Details of any criminal, civil, or immigration offences
Depending on your circumstances, you may also need to provide additional documents such as a travel history for the past 10 years or a tuberculosis (TB) test certificate.
The Home Office fees for a Standard Visitor visa application are £100 for a 6-month visa. If you visit the UK regularly, you may want to apply for a long-term Standard Visitor visa instead.
If your UK Visitor visa application is refused, you cannot challenge or appeal the decision. However, you can challenge the refusal by way of the Pre-action Protocol (PAP) and Judicial Review (JR).
In some cases, it may be best to reapply for a UK Visitor visa rather than challenging the previous refusal. If you choose this option, you will need to address the reasons for the previous refusal in your new application.
