UK Child Visa
The UK Child Visa is a type of Standard Visitor Visa will allow a child to visit friends and family or receive education in the United Kingdom for up to six months.
Due to safety concerns regarding children, this is an extremely difficult visa application process. It is very important to have legal guidance at every stage. Our expert lawyers will closely work with you and guide you through the UK Child Visa application process to ensure that it is filled out to the highest standard, giving you the best chance of a successful application. During your application, we will also be in contact with the relevant authorities, so there will be much less for you to worry about than if you were applying on your own.
If a child is a visa national, they must provide proof of valid Entry Clearance which identifies their accompanying or explains that the child is unaccompanied. Requirements for a Child Visa are as follows, but not always limited to:
The applicant child being under the age of 18 years old when applying
Having adequate arrangements for the child, including for healthcare, travel, care, maintenance, accommodation and more. You must also be able to give require details on all arrangements beforehand.
The applicant child having parents or guardians in another country that can be easily contacted.
If the application is required for somebody under the age of 17 wishing to study in the United Kingdom for longer than 6 months, you may need a Tier 4 Child Student Visa. If the child is 16 or 17, they may apply either for a Child Student Visa or the regular Student Visa. Either visa will allow Non-EEA nationals to study in the UK so long as they have already got an offer to study from an educational facility in the UK. ASL will work with you to help you understand what the best visa method is to suit you.
