When you are going to apply for a child visa to the UK, you need to figure out many issues and questions. You may think that applying for a visa for a child to the UK is much easier than for an adult, but, unfortunately, this is not right. The UK Embassy сonsideres children's documents very carefully. The visa officer, when deciding to issue a visa to a child, must be sure that the child will be under guardianship in the UK and all financial costs will be covered by the parents or other sponsors of the trip.
When you are starting the process of applying for a visa to the UK, you must decide what type and category of visa your child needs. How to choose the right type of the UK visa for your child:
A child visa to the UK is divided into the following categories: Accompanied and Unaccompanied.
A child visa to the UK of the category Accompanied means that the child will be travelling with adults. The details of the adult / adults will be indicated on the child's visa. When you apply for a visa, you can specify the details of a maximum of two adults who plan to accompany the child. Adults who will accompany the child may be: parents, legal guardians, grandparents, other close relatives, school group leaders, etc. If the child is traveling with one of the parents or accompanied by other relatives / people, it is necessary to provide notarized permission for the child to travel abroad from one of the parents or from both parents.
The visa to the UK of the category unaccompanied allows for children to travel without being accompanied by adults. In this case both parents or legal guardians must provide a notarized permission for the child to travel abroad.
