Visa Requirements

To check if you need a Visa, and to apply if you do, see the UK Visas and Immigration Website.

Invitation letters

If you require an invitation letter we will provide one only after we have received:

  1. A scanned copy of your passport
  2. Your accommodation and travel plans
  3. A physical address so we can send you a hard copy of the invitation letter
  4. Payment of the registration fees. If you apply for a Visa and are unsuccessful, we will issue a 50% refund after receiving proof of your unsuccessful application which should be sent to

If addition, if you are travelling with accompanying persons (e.g. child dependants) we will also need:

  • A scanned copy of their passports
  • Details of their connection to you and their reason for travel
