Is UK your next travel destination? Wondering how to get your UK visa? Continue reading as we unfold the UK visa process and tips for you.

The UK is one of the most important nations from the view – Why are we calling it important and not only favourite. Because even from an economic point of view, UK is house to several top-notch universities like the Cambridge and the Oxford and further, it offers employment to people across the globe. London is surely one of the most beautiful cities in the world and surely, people love spending a week in London and it's also one of the most powerful economies in the world. In this article, we'll give you a gist about how to get a UK visa from the UAE.

It's common knowledge that the UK immigration is very selective and careful about the people that they have to let in, given the international scenario about terrorism and the attacks in the UK itself. And the one document that you surely know about that you need to have in order to get into any country these days is the visa, besides the passport of course. So while the passport is issued to you by your country of origin, the visa is issued to you by the country you want to visit.

UK visa documents

In the case of the residents or citizens of the UAE, there are multiple options for visas. Depending upon your purpose of visit in the UAE, there can be one or several different kinds of visas that you may be eligible for. If you need a UK tourist visa, you can simply apply for the Standard Visitor Visa which allows you to stay in the UK for 6 months. If you are looking forward to a UK Study Visa, you can apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa which allows you to remain in the country for 6 months again. However, if you have a passport from either Kuwait, Oman, Qatar or the UAE, you are qualified to get an electronic visa waiver to enter the UK. This is not the ordinary visa, but as the name suggests, a visa waiver. Known in short as the EVW, the Electronic Visa Waiver can be used if you require to stay in the UK for a definite purpose for a maximum of 6 months. So, if you are from Dubai or Sharjah, and are looking forward to a stay in the UK for tourism, business, study or medical treatment (the four listed purposes for which you can get an EVW), you can apply for the EVW.

The steps to get an EVW for the passport holders from the UAE is much simpler than getting a regular visa.

Steps to get EVM to the UK from UAE are involved in the process:

  • In order to get an EVW for the residents of Dubai, Sharjah or other UAE locations, you need not visit a visa application centre like the VFS Global Centre. All you need to do is complete an online form which you can get easily online or from us. This is a very cheap option because all you need to pay is 15 GBP by either debit or credit card. And instead of applying for 3 months in advance, all you need to ensure is you have filled up the online form 58 hours before your trip to the UK.

    The documents required for your EVW or sometimes known as the shortcut UK Visa are your current passport and the address in the UK where you plan to stay for the length of the duration of your stay in the country.

  • After filling up the detailed form, you need to upload the image of your passport photo page. There should be a complete similarity in the details present in your passport and the details you fill into the form. If everything goes fine, you'll get your EVW within 24 hours which you can download and get ready to fly.

The area where knowledge with maximum clarity is required is the documents that you need to submit and the steps involved in the process.
