UK short-term visa

Introduction
Most people coming to the UK for a short visit (eg. for an exchange) need a "general visitor" visa.

For those under 18 years of age, a "child visitor" visa is required, but the rules are similar.

More information about "visitor" visas can be found at the following address: https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration/tourist-short-stay-visas.

UK Border Agency - visa application customer satisfaction survey

The UK Border Agency has launched a visa application customer satisfaction survey.

At the moment it only applies to people applying from within the UK but from December 2013, it will apply to people applying from outside the UK too.

The survey is only for applicants. Unfortunately, that means that if you are a sponsor or a host, you cannot respond to the survey.

Applicants will be provided with a weblink when they receive their visa decision letter. They can follow this link to complete the survey. The survey is short - it is expected to take 10 minutes.
