UK visitor visa is for a person who wants to come to the UK, usually for up to six months, for a temporary purpose, for example as a tourist, to visit friends or family or to carry out a business activity. Visitors cannot work or study in the UK unless this is allowed by the permitted activities that are set out in these Visitor Rules.

Each visitor must meet the requirements of Appendix V of the Immigration Rules, even if they are travelling as, for example, a family group, a tour group or a school party. All visitor visa applications are decided based on the information provided by the applicant and any other relevant circumstances at the date of decision.

It is not possible to switch to become a visitor while in the UK where a person is in the UK in breach of immigration laws or has entry clearance or leave to enter or remain for another purpose.

As specialist visitor visa solicitors, we can provide expert immigration advice and representations for following matters involving visitor visas:

FAQs - Challenging Refusal Of Visitor Visa UK

I have pending Judicial Review (JR) against the refusal of my visitor visa application which is taking too long. Can I submit a fresh application whilst the Judicial Review (JR) is pending in the court?

You can make a fresh application whilst you have pending Judicial Review in the Upper Tribunal against the refusal of your previous visitor visa application. However, if you are granted visitor visa as a result of fresh application, you will have to withdraw the Judicial Review from the Upper Tribunal (UT) and you may have some legal costs implications.
