Visa Information

Visa Information for Travel to the UK

It is the travelers responsibility to check and confirm current visa requirements to enter United Kingdom. You may check with the UK Border Agency whether you need a visa and how to obtain one if necessary.

Whether or not you need a visa depends on your nationality. The United Kingdom has specific visa requirements for visitors, and it's essential to check if your country is on the visa-exempt list.

Applying for a Visa
  • Check Your Eligibility: Before applying for a visa, make sure you meet the eligibility criteria outlined by the UK government.
  • Online Application: Complete the visa application form online through the official UK government website.
  • Book an Appointment: Schedule an appointment at the nearest UK embassy or consulate to submit your application and biometric information.
  • Supporting Documents: Prepare all necessary documents, including your invitation letter, proof of accommodation, and travel itinerary.
  • Visa Fee: Pay the visa application fee, which varies depending on the type and duration of the visa.
  • Processing Time: Allow sufficient time for the processing of your visa application. Processing times may vary, so it's advisable to apply well in advance of the conference dates.
