How do I get a visa?
A Visitor visa allows applicants to travel to the UK purely to visit the country for up to six (6) months. All applicants in this category must prove to the UK Immigration Authorities that they can financially maintain and accommodate themselves in the UK without recourse to public funding or working. They can show however that they have assistance from family member (s) living in the UK.
TOURIST VISITOR VISA BASIC REQUIREMENTS
To qualify under a Visitor visa category there are basic requirements which must be met. Applicants must only visit the UK for a maximum of six (6) months, show that they will be able to financially support themselves (if necessary with the support of friends and family) and meet the cost of their onward journey. The applicant must not take up any paid or unpaid employment in the UK. If you apply for a visa, you should provide these documents with your visa application. If you travel to the UK without a visa, you should bring them with you so that you can show them to the officers at the border.
Nationals or citizens of the following countries or territorial entities need a visa for the United Kingdom: Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, Ethiopia, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Pakistan.
You should provide as many relevant documents as you can to show that you qualify for entry to the UK. If you do not provide them, your application may be refused.
You must decide which documents will best support your application.
We advise you to consider providing documents that contain:
- Information about you
- Information about your finances and employment
- Your accommodation and travel details
- Information about your visit to the UK
TIP: Apply for more time than you need as the UK visitor’s visa runs from the day it is granted, but you may not be able to get a flight straight away. You will probably also be required to return to the issuing UK embassy when you arrive back to have the UK visitor’s visa cancelled; after all, it is a multiple entry, 180-day visa that could be used to return to the UK without the sponsor’s knowledge, so try not to arrive back on a Saturday unless you want a holiday in the capital.

DUBAI VISA REQUIREMENTS
Most travelers need to obtain a visa prior to entering the UAE either through their respective embassy, a local UAE sponsor or a local hotel. A full passport, valid for six months from the end of the visit, is also a requirement. Ask your travel agent or the hotel to assist you in planning your trip to the Dubai by providing you with visas services. For up-to-date information on visa requirements, please go to www.dnrd.gov.ae to visit the UAE Department of Naturalisation and Residency website or contact the UAE Embassy or its representation in your country for further details.
It is advisable to review your health insurance policies before travelling to Dubai, as hospital treatment though top-notch, can be expensive.
Specific hotels will arrange private transfers from the airport. Please confirm this with your hotel. However if you have neither a representative or transport provided do not panic as taxis are readily available. Taxis are the most common form of transfer from the airport.
The “visitor” visa is a non-immigrant visa for persons desiring to enter the United States temporarily for business (B-1), for pleasure or medical treatment (B-2), or combination of both (B-1/B-2) purposes.
Business Visitor Visas (B-1) – For example, if the purpose for your planned travel is to consult with business associates, travel for a scientific, educational, and professional or business convention, or conference on specific dates, settle an estate, or negotiate a contract, then a business visitor visa (B-1) would be the appropriate type of visa for your travel.
Applicants must demonstrate that they are properly classifiable as visitors under U.S. law by:
- Evidence which shows the purpose of the trip, intent to depart the United States, and arrangements made to cover the costs of the trip may be provided. It is impossible to specify the exact form the documentation should take since applicants’ circumstances vary greatly.
- Those applicants who do not have sufficient funds to support themselves while in the U.S. must present convincing evidence that an interested person will provide support.
- Depending on individual circumstances, applicants may provide other documentation substantiating the trip’s purpose and specifying the nature of binding obligations, such as family ties or employment, which would compel their return abroad.
