What are the requirements for a child visitor visa?
If you or your child want to come to the UK for less than six months, you can apply under the Child Visitor category of the Standard Visitor Visa. This visa also permits you to study whilst here.
To come to the UK as a Child Visitor you must be able to show that you:
are under the age of 18 years at the time of applying;
have suitable arrangements in place (i.e. for your travel, care maintenance etc) and can disclose full details of them;
have a parent or guardian in your home country who is accountable for your care and can offer their address and landline contact number;
if accepted on a course of study, are at a learning institute that is on the register of education and training providers. It cannot be state funded.
Child Visitors who are visa nationals must have a valid Entry Clearance which identifies the adult accompanying the child visitor, or states that the child visitor is unaccompanied. If they do not have proof that they are able to travel alone, the Child Visitor Visa will only be valid if the named adult physically escorts the child.
