Do I need a Visa?

Travelling to the United Kingdom

The information here is for all travellers who are passing through or crossing our border, including United Kingdom passport holders, residents, and short-term visitors.

We are responsible for protecting the United Kingdom border so that authorised travellers and legitimate goods can pass freely. We do this through the work of our visa staff overseas, and the immigration and customs checks carried out by our border force at ports and airports.

If you are visiting the United Kingdom, you should read Rights and responsibilities for information on whether you can do business while you are here, what medical treatment is available to you, and whether or not you will need to register with the police.
