UK Visitor Visas

If you want to visit the UK for up to six months to conduct business, study a short course, or see friends and family, you may need to apply for a Standard Visitor visa. Our specialist immigration lawyers will assess your visa requirements and help you navigate the application process.

The Home Office keeps a list of published nationalities that require a visa before arrival; all other nationalities are classed as ‘non-visa nationals’ and can normally enter as a visitor on entry. However, it’s important to note that non-visa nationals will still need to meet the requirements of the Standard Visitor Visa, so legal guidance may be beneficial even if you do not need to go through the visa application process.

At Lexus Law we have extensive experience in preparing corporate and private clients for short visits to the UK. Our Legal 500-recognised lawyers will provide direction on the type of visa required for your visit and will guide you through the challenging application process.

  • We will assess your situation and ensure that you meet all of the requirements for a Standard Visitor visa. This includes verifying you are able to financially support yourself and any dependants during your stay, as well as having funds to pay for your return/onward journey before your visa expires.
  • We will aid with all aspects of the Standard Visitor visa application to make sure that all documentation is submitted fully and accurately and your entry to the UK is as smooth as possible. 
  • If you need to stay in the UK for longer than six months due to business obligations or ambitions, we can advise on the appropriate work or business visa.
