Before you apply
- You should apply well in advance and at the latest 15 days before you plan to travel. You can submit your application up to three months before your planned departure.
- We recommend that you do not buy your ticket until a visa has been granted.
- Before you can hand in the required documentation, you must register your application online. When you come to hand in your documentation, you will be asked to provide fingerprints.
- You may be asked to provide additional documentation or to come for an interview.
In most cases you will get the result of your application within 15 days after the embassy has received the application.
In order to apply for a visa from the UK you must legally reside here.
