Transit Visitor Visa

There are two types of visas for people who will simply be transiting in the UK:

Direct Airside Transit Visa

This visa is for visa nationals who will be transiting through a UK airport but will not pass through UK border control. You must provide evidence that confirms you have permission to enter the country you will be travelling to from the UK when you apply for the visa.

Visitor in Transit Visa

This visa is for persons who will be changing flights in the UK on their way to another country, but will pass through UK border control. You can spend no more than 48 hours in the UK on this visa. You must also provide evidence that confirms you have permission to enter the country you will be travelling to from the UK when you apply for the visa.
