The UK visitor visa is for those Thai nationals who wish to visit the UK for a holiday. Note that you need to apply for the UK visitor visa in Thailand before you leave for the UK and it is always best to speak to a lawyer in Bangkok first to determine if you are allowed an entry into the country. Note that when the visitor visa is granted, you are allowed to travel and stay in the UK for a period of 6 months.
Also note that during this time you are not allowed to work or generate any income in the UK. Note that if you stay in the UK for longer than what you are allowed this is illegal and obtaining another visa will be very difficult. If you need an extension then you need to speak to the UK Border Agency or the Home Office and apply for an extension of stay based on your compelling circumstances.
As the visa applicant in Thailand, you would have to show the following as your ties to Thailand which gives the British government the assurance as well as the visa officer in Bangkok that you are coming back after your allowed visit in the United Kingdom.
- – Stable employment
- – Assets and Properties
- – Savings
- – Copy of Itinerary
- – Dependents
