Short-term study visa Foreign nationals who wish to come to the UK for short-term courses may do so under the Student Visitor visa application. The visa is designed for students who are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland and wish to study a course in the UK which is less than 11 months. For courses that are 12 months or more, applicants should be seeking to apply for the Tier 4 Student visa. Whilst on the Student Visitor visa, applicants are not permitted to work.
UK Visit Visa General Visitor UK Visit Visa Visitors who are coming for tourist purposes or to see family in the Uk will often need to apply for a UK visit visa, or “entry clearance”, before travelling to the UK. The visitor visa is the most popular route for individuals to come to the UK for tourism, business, medical treatment or to visit a family. We have observed however, that the success rate of visit visas is very low when the applicants choose to make the application on their own without the help from the immigration lawyer.
Special Visitor there are a number of visitor types permitted in the UK. One of the more popular special visitor visa types is one which allows one parent of a Tier 4 (Child) visa holder to remain in the UK with their son or daughter until they turn the age of 14. During this period, the parent is not permitted to work in the UK and is subject to a number of other restrictions.
Permitted Paid Engagements an additional category for professionals has been created, which includes lecturers, examiners, qualified lawyers providing advocacy, arbitration or alternative means of dispute resolution, or designated overseas airline pilot examiners. This visa is only for those that will be passing through border and entering the UK beyond the airport.
