    Apply for your visa online:
    Next, you’ll fill in the online visa application form before visiting your nearest facility to have your biometrics data collected (we’re talking fingerprints!). After that, your application and passport will be sent to the UK Consulate for processing, which can take up to 8 weeks.

    Once your visa’s arranged, it’s time to get excited! Booking flights is a breeze with the help of our in-house travel agency, STA Travel. Give them a call on 1-800-781-4040.



You will need to be in your home country, unless you already have a visa to live/study somewhere other than the UK that is for over 6 months and is affixed to your passport. You should allow yourself around 10 weeks to complete the application process.
