You can apply for a Standard Visitor visa if you want to visit the UK:
- for leisure, for example on holiday or to see your family and friends
- for business, or to take part in sports or creative events
- for another reason, for example to receive private medical treatment
When applying for a Visitor Visa, the earliest time is 3 months prior to your visit and you would be able to remain in the UK for approximately 6 months. You could also be issued a Visitor Visa for a longer duration i.e. 5 to 10 years, but with this specific visa, you would only be permitted a visit in the UK for 6 months at one given time.
If you are in the UK for a private medical treatment, the stay could be extended for up to 11 months. You could be eligible to stay in the UK for up to 12 months if you are reasoning is for study or research.
