How to Apply for a UK Visa

Whether you are traveling to the UK for business or pleasure from Dubai, you will need to apply for a visa.  You can apply up to 3 months before your date of travel to the UK. You must be prepared to clearly state when you intend to travel and when you would like the visa to be valid from. Before you apply you must:

  • Prepare the supporting documents that you will need,
  • Be ready to submit your visa application,
  • Submit your your fingerprints and photograph , and
  • Be able to pay the visa application fee. 

If you are applying under the points-based system, you should provide all the documents required for your visa category. For each document, you should also provide backup information or an explanation.  For every document that you provide, you must include the original document and a photocopy. This includes a copy of your passport bio-data page (the page containing your photograph). Please make sure that the photocopies are of good quality and can be read easily.
