UK visa information

Some visitors will require a visa in order to visit the United Kingdom. 

With history, culture and glorious countryside in abundance, it’s no wonder the UK is so popular with visitors.

UK visa requirements vary. For example, since mid-2009 South Africans require a visa to enter even if they have previously travelled to the UK.

Not to worry! The UK Government has a website,, which will let you know if you need a visa (and let you apply online if you do).
