Do Vietnamese citizens need a Standard Visitor Visa for the United Kingdom?

Yes, as a Vietnamese citizen, you need a valid visa to visit the United Kingdom. This applies whether you're planning a short vacation, a business trip, or a visit to see your friends and family in the UK.

What is the UK Standard Visitor Visa?

The UK Standard Visitor Visa is an official travel document that permits foreign individuals to enter the United Kingdom for a limited period.

It's designed for various purposes, such as tourism, business meetings, academic gatherings, or medical treatments.

However, if this visa doesn't cover your travel purposes, you may need to look at other types of UK visas that better suit your needs. Please note that the visa requirements may vary depending on the specific type of visa and your situation.

How long can Vietnamese citizens stay in the UK with the Visitor Visa?

With a UK Standard Visitor Visa, Vietnamese passport holders can stay in the UK for up to 180 days in Total. We help you apply for a Multiple Entry visa that is valid for 180 days after issued.

Your visa clearly outlines the length of your stay, and it's vital to adhere to it. Overstaying might result in penalties and complicate future visits to the United Kingdom.

You can extend your stay in unique circumstances, such as receiving medical treatment or undertaking academic activities. However, this isn't guaranteed - you'll need to obtain approval from UK immigration authorities and submit a new application.

UK Standard Visitor Visa: Eligibility criteria for Vietnamese citizens

Are you eligible for a UK Standard Visitor Visa as a Vietnamese citizen? Here's what you need to know:

  • Valid passport: Your passport should be valid for your stay in the UK.

  • Travel purpose: You must clearly state why you're visiting—maybe for tourism, a business meeting, or visiting family. Remember, you can't study for more than 30 days or work in the country.

  • Enough funds: You must show enough money to support yourself during your stay without working or accessing public funds.

  • Return or onward ticket: It's essential to prove that you'll leave the UK at the end of your visit. An onward or return ticket can help with this; however, this is optional.

  • Previous travel history: Your previous travel history and adhering to previous visa limits can strengthen your application.

Every application is different. But don't worry; we're here to help guide you through it

UK Standard Visitor Visa required documents for citizens of Vietnam

Getting your UK Standard Visitor Visa involves several important documents. Here's a handy checklist to get you started:

  • Valid Vietnamese passport: Your passport should be valid for your entire stay in the UK.

  • Proof of enough funds: Bank statements or payslips can show that you have enough money to cover your trip.

  • Travel itinerary: A trip plan that includes details like places you'll visit and accommodation bookings.

  • Proof of ties to home: Documents that show you have reasons to return to your home country - like a letter from your employer or proof of property ownership.

  • Invitation letter: If you're visiting friends or family, a letter from them can help. You might need a letter from the UK company if you're traveling to the UK for business.

  • Medical documents: If you're going to the UK for treatment, you'll need a letter from your doctor outlining the treatment.

  • Previous travel history: If you have old passports that show your travel history, include them too.

  • Passport photos: You must provide two recent photographs meeting UK photo requirements.

Depending on your circumstances and the purpose of your visit, you may need to provide additional documents. Dependent children may also require birth certificates, etc., to apply.
