Most people are refused a UK visitor visa the first time because they do not have a strong enough, valid reason for going to the UK. If the reason is to visit a lover, then you have a far better chance if you can prove that you have had a 'continuing relationship' for at least six months. At this stage of the proceedings, all your efforts should be directed at validating the reason for your visit or proving your relationship.

If you want to holiday or visit family in Australia, unless you are a New Zealand citizen, you will need to obtain an Australian visa before you travel. The type of visa you will need broadly depends on what you intend to do in Australia, your nationality and the length of time you want to stay in Australia, but you will probably need either an Electronic Travel Authority (Visitor) or a Tourist visa or a Sponsored Family Visitor visa. Whichever the case, you should apply for the full period of time that you want to remain in Australia, because once there, it is possible that you will be unable to extend your visa.

You may apply for a Tourist Visa whether you are inside or outside Australia and the duration will usually be 3 or 6 months but can sometimes extend to 12 months if you can prove your ability to support yourself during your stay. Applications for Tourist Visas may be made via the Internet if you are a passport holder of an eligible country, or via a registered travel agent, airline or service provider, a list of which can be found on the website mentioned above.

Many individuals come to the UK to study with one thing in mind; to be educated in one of the excellent educational institutions in the world. Individuals that are educated in the UK are revered and respected because of the back breaking standards and once you survive, you can definitely land a top paying job anywhere else. Some individuals come to the UK to improve their English language skills. In this case, you may apply for a UK visitor as a student. The UK immigration law insists that a student should accomplish the requirements which you will find below.

There are requirements for those who wish to study in the UK. If your course will take lesser than six months to finish then the application will fall under the visitor visa. To those who have longer courses, then an entry clearance is required. You should visit the UK Border agency website to find the list of countries that requires its citizens to apply for a visa to come to the UK. If you have other concerns about visa applications, it is wise to consider seeking the advice of a UK solicitor, who is experts on the matter.

If you are a visitor on business and you have a family member or relatives in the UK, you also have to declare it on the form. It is important that you must let the Agency know that you intend to visit them so that you will be forwarded with the Family Visitor form to fill out your relatives or family's name, addresses and immigration status and whether or not you will be staying with them during your stay in the country. If you have any concern, you can always seek the advice of the expert UK Solicitors who can guide you with the processes. The Visa costs 205 pounds and provides your travel documents such as passport, a letter of invitation from the company, and photographs as required by the UK Border Agency.
