VISA APPLICATION

VISA APPLICATION

- What are the visa rules if I am an EEA or Swiss national?

If you are an EEA (European Economic Area) or Swiss national you will not need a visa to come to the UK, because you have the right to live and work in the UK provided that you do not require the help of public money. Nationals of Switzerland were given the same rights as EEA nationals in June 2002.

The UK Visas website has more information for EEA and Swiss Nationals: http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/en/howtoapply/infs/inf18eeaswissnationals

UKCISA produce guidance notes on "EEA and Swiss students studying and living in the UK": http://www.ukcisa.org.uk/student/information_sheets.php.

The UK Visas website has a "Do I need a UK visa?" questionnaire which you can use to find out if you need a visa before coming to the UK: http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk. If you need a visa, this site lists which forms you need to complete, provides electronic copies of these forms (you can print them and use these for your application), and tells you where you need to apply. Depending on where you apply, you may be able to apply in person, by post, through a courier, or online. Check very carefully that you provide all of the necessary documents. You will have to pay an application fee (in your local currency). Note that it can take several weeks to obtain a visa. You may need to travel to your nearest UK Visas office for an interview and to give biometric data (your fingerprints may be scanned, and a digital photograph of your face may be taken).
