    Services we Provide

    Child Visitor Visa

    A Child Visitor Visa allows someone under the age of 18 to travel to the UK, to visit friends/family or be educated. This type of visa falls under the Standard Visitor Visa category and is valid for up to six months.

    If you (or your child) are applying in this category you must be able to prove that you have suitable accommodation and care during your stay. You must also prove that you have a parent or guardian in your home country who is otherwise responsible for your well-being.

    Our team of highly-qualified lawyers can assist you with your application for a Child Visitor Visa. One of our lawyers will work with you to assess your eligibility and complete your application to the highest standard. Your lawyer will also perform a comprehensive document check and produce a supporting Letter of Representation. This Letter highlights the merits of your case, references your supporting documentation and cites UK immigration law in support of your application.

    Contact us online or call free on 0333 363 8577 to arrange your first meeting with an immigration lawyer today. You can speak with our LondonManchester, or Birmingham immigration lawyers, or use the office finder to find your closest office.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    If you or your child want to come to the UK for less than six months, you can apply under the Child Visitor category of the Standard Visitor Visa. This visa also permits you to study whilst here.

    To come to the UK as a Child Visitor you must be able to show that you:

    • are under the age of 18 years at the time of applying;
    • have suitable arrangements in place (i.e. for your travel, care maintenance etc) and can disclose full details of them;
    • have a parent or guardian in your home country who is accountable for your care and can offer their address and landline contact number;
    • if accepted on a course of study, are at a learning institute that is on the register of education and training providers. It cannot be state funded.

    Child Visitors who are visa nationals must have a valid Entry Clearance which identifies the adult accompanying the child visitor, or states that the child visitor is unaccompanied. If they do not have proof that they are able to travel alone, the Child Visitor Visa will only be valid if the named adult physically escorts the child.

    If you/your child want to study in the UK for a period longer than six months, you can apply for a Tier 4 Child Student Visa under the points-based-system.

    If you (or your child) visit the UK as a child visitor you are only allowed to stay for a maximum of six months. If you were granted leave to enter the UK for three months then this will be noted in your passport.

    If you wish to apply for a Child Visitor extension you can do so by using the FLR(O) application.

    You are not allowed to stay in the UK as a visitor for more than six months and you are expected to return to your home country when your visa expires.

    You may appeal a decision to refuse entry clearance if you are visiting a close family member. An immigration officer will say which members of the family qualify for this appeal.

    We recommend that you apply for Entry Clearance in your country of residence before travelling to the UK.

    No – with a visa in a visitor category, you will not have to prove a knowledge of the English Language or site the Life in the UK Test.

    But if you are studying here, the course you study may have independent English Language requirements.

    At IAS, our team of expert advisers can help assist and support you through each stage of your visa application process.

    Our services include:

    • advising you on your child’s eligibility under the UK immigration rules;
    • assessing and collating your documents, ensuring they are sufficient for the application;
    • professionally completing and compiling all necessary paperwork;
    • producing a tailored Letter of Representation highlighting the merits of your case, referring to supporting; documentation and citing UK immigration law;
    • liaising with the Home Office until a decision is reached.
