Travelling to the UK for countries not participating in the visa waiver program is now easier than one might think. Thanks to the introduction of the electronic visa system, some nationalities can go through an online application quickly to obtain an electronic visa and additionally avoid unnecessary stress related to Embassy visits.
With an eVisa citizens of a few countries can visit the United Kingdom without having to go through so much stress. The UK eVisa is designed to serve business, tourist, medical and transit purposes.
What is eVisa to United Kingdom ( UK)
The UK eVisa is a permit dedicated only to 4 nationalities (citizens of Oman, Qatar, the UAE and Kuwait) who wish to enter the UK for different purposes. The UK authorities implemented this visa policy to provide eligible visitors a more convenient option to obtain an entry permit when travelling to their country.
Serving as a single-entry permit, it gives visitors the option of a 6 month stay when they visit the UK. Since this UK eVisa process can be done online, there is no need to leave the comfort of home to obtain a visa.
Once you have completed the online form, you only have to relax and wait for an approval mail which contains your eVisa in a PDF format.
Holders of eVisa to the UK can:
- visit family or friends, go for holidays, explore the UK as tourists
- make a transit stop in the UK on their way to another country
- make a business-related trip
- visit the country for medical treatment
