New arrangements for visitor visas
Today different visitor visa routes are replaced by four visit visa categories:
- Visit Standard
- Marriage/Civil Partnership Visit
- Permitted Paid Engagement Visa
- Transit Visa
The parent of a child at school route and student visit visa route are being removed from the visit visa subcategories as they are not visit visa.
Applicants who want to come to the UK under these two categories must take a TB test and pay Immigration Health Surcharge.
