Individuals can travel to the UK for the specific purpose of visiting friends and family who live in the UK.
UK family members can sponsor the applicant by providing an invitation letter to confirm the relationship, purpose of the visit, and also the support they will be providing in terms of financial assistance and/or accommodation.
Applicants in this category must prove to the UK Immigration Authorities that they can financially maintain and accommodate themselves in the UK with or without assistance from a family member(s) living in the UK but without resource to public funding or employment.
To qualify for a Standard Visitor visa for family visit purposes there are basic requirements which must be met. Applicants must only visit the UK for a maximum of six (6) months, show that they will be able to financially support themselves (if necessary with the support of friends and family) and meet the cost of their onward journey. They must not take up any paid or unpaid employment in the UK.
This visa entitles holders to visit the UK for up to a maximum of six (6) months, allowing them to experience the life and culture in the UK. They may also be allowed multiple entries during the six (6) month period.
