The list of documents for obtaining a visa to the UK

Posted by Avisa:   20.02.2020

If you plan to travel to the UK to see family or friends, meet business partners or attend a conference or exhibition, take part in a sporting event, get counselling or receive treatment for a short term in the UK, you need to apply for a Standard Visitor Visa. This type of short-term visa is issued for a period of 6 months to 10 years, with the possibility of staying in the country up to 180 days in one year. The cost of a visa to England will depend on the length of time you want the visa. The embassy's paperwork takes between 5 and 15 business days, depending on whether you choose a priority consideration or standard process. The documents you collect can be submitted in three ways: through the Visa Center for an additional fee, by scanning them yourself and putting them on the agency’s site or by going through a visa agency. To get a visa to England you must provide:

  • completed online questionnaire,
  • all valid and expired  passports,
  • confirmation of income,
  • bank statement for the last 3-6 months,
  • the current balance on the account,
  • documents confirming your attachment to the homeland,
  • confirmation of the purpose of the trip, such as an invitation from relatives or friends, or a business invitation, the itinerary of the trip, etc.

This general list of documents fits almost any applicant, however each situation is different and may require more specific information and documentation.

Knowing how to apply for a visa to England is important but there are other factors.  You should know what you are not allowed to do while on such a visa.  For example;

  • work even if you don't have paid work in Ukraine,
  • live in the UK for more than 180 days a year,
  • receive public funds,
  • marry or register a civil marriage

Getting a visa to England for Ukrainians is now very possible.  The main thing is to collect all the required documents and correctly fill out the visa questionnaire.  The questionnaire must be done in such a way that you convince the visa officer that you are not a potential immigrant and a trip to the UK will be short-term.
