Visitor visa for UK

Recommended Posts

The basic six month visitor visa Thais can get for the UK, is this multi entry or single? 

This is further to my thread about cheap flights to the UK and I'm considering flying Mrs Thinkingallowed over to Blighty for Christmas and doing a trip to Mexico in the middle of the month's holiday.

Cheers Matt. 

According to the British Embassy's website the Standard Visitor Visa replaces quite a few visas including the family visitor one so hopefully multi entry.

Quite excited about the thought of this as I haven't spent Christmas outside Thailand for over ten years.

Meet a criteria it's easy , John42 says its easy I hope he gives his  story... 

No problem if a proper relationship , as I understand his girlfriend has not got a visa yet , but she was not a bar girl so as I see it's a simple process ?

?

he is in for a hell of a ride.i met pukky in wonderful2.funny old world.i have a wonderful wife and family who needed  a leg up.sorted.best thing since sliced bread.why the stigma about meeting a girl in a bar.?.thats pattaya.end of.!!

pukky had to have an interview at the embassy,in the waiting area which has cameras,i made sure she looked smart and ignored other applicants with tattoos etc.they always watch the behavior of the applicants.just a little tip.you must go dressed for business and ignore everybody waiting.

A friend of mine has just been to the UK from Phuket at the beginning of July.  Coming back again in October and she has a 6 month standard tourist that states multi-entry.

All UK visas are multiple-entry unless there a special circumstances, but these are exceptions.

There is no face-to-face interview for Visitor visas.  She will have to submit her application and get her biometrics taken at VFS in Bangkok (The Trendy, Sukhumvit 13) but this is nothing to do with the Embassy who make the decision.  She may get a phone call from an ECO to discuss the application.  Currently visitor visas are being processed within a week.

Was too slow for the very cheap Malaysian tickets but have just booked a flight with BA which has a 2000 baht fee for cancellation in case of problems. 

Have to decide whether she applies in her own right or I or my father sponsors her application. 

Why mention my father? Well I've not lived in the UK myself for that long and by the time the visa application comes about I'll only have been working for my own company for five months, which may complicate things . I have property that I own and another that I have a lease on which I guess helps? 

Possibly it might be easier for dear old dad to invite his daughter-in-law across for a holiday? 

Just throwing stuff out here for feedback and also in the hope that it might help others in the future. 

Matt mentioned having lots of photos helps and to be honest there are very few pics we have with the both of us on in recent years. I mean for God's sake if we're on holiday taking photos one of us is holding the camera!  I'm hoping that the fact both of us still have old passports that show our trips to Malaysia x3, Bali x2, Singapore, Laos, Vietnam x2 and Cambodia x3 will help? Will the fifty plus Thai stamps in my passports help?

 

Now I don't mean to be rude, not that bothered if I am to be honest, but it is possible that as well as helping me this thread may be of use to others in the future. So unless you've something positive or informative to add could the usual suspects please go bitch at each other in parts of the forum that are set out for such "fun".

The travel together stamps help for sure , a pal of mine used them as evidence and got a visa.

Cheers for that, I assumed it might be the case.

If I am in the region would love to meet you in Mexico for a few Corona beers boss.

Corona? Modelo of Pacifico for this dude.

Thinking of going to Puerto Vallarta so we'd have to get messy with Raicilla. 

Good to see you back.

Right, one thing I know I'd have to sort out for Mrs Thinkingallowed is travel insurance. 

First thing I looked at is a policy from World Nomads that would cover her for a month for the UK and Mexico for 4300 baht. One thing I like about this policy is, God forbid, if anything went wrong I'd be talking to an English speaking person on the other end of the phone.

Might it make the visa application easier if a travel insurance document from a western company was presented? If we went down the route of dealing with a Thai company would it have to have it translated?
