Visa application forms 

Below you will find all the application forms and guidance notes that you need to make a visa application.  If you have any problems downloading the forms, please use the feedback page to let us know.

Please note that the visa application forms on this page are for use outside the United Kingdom (UK) only. If you are in the UK and making an application to the UK Border Agency you can find application forms on their website or you can call the Application Forms Unit on 0870 241 0645:

UK Border Agency - Find an application form 

Some visa application centres will only accept online applications. To find out if you can apply online please visit the Visa4UK.  If you are not in the UK, and if you cannot apply online you will need to fill in a visa application form. You can get a form, free of charge, from your nearest visa application centre or British mission overseas that offers a visa service, or you can download the form you need from the list of application forms below.

Which form do I need?
You will need to fill in only one application form, according to the type of application you will make.  However, a separate application form must be completed for each person that is travelling with you (for example, if you are travelling with 2 children, you must complete an application form for yourself, as well as an application form for each of the children travelling with you – so in this example 3 forms in total).
