Thread: Would i need a UK Visa???

  1. #1
    Hello Friends,
    Just had a quick question. Me and my wife are traveling to India in Oct and I have a 5-6 hour stopover in London (and on return as well) I was wondering do I need a UK transit visa? I am an Indian citizen and a US Permanent Resident (Green-card holder) and my wife is a USC. Thanks for all your help friends. I really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Well Raju, if you do not want to go out of the air port at UK then you do not need a UK visa as long as your Permanent Resident Card is valid. Even if you want to stay there for less than 24 hours you can request the immigration officer at the port of entry in UK. They usually let the people go out for less than 24 hours, having a valid US visa or green card.

    Hello RationalE,ProudUSC,Someone12,Jake01
    Thank you for your response. Well after reading UK consulate visa page it looks like people need transit visa if their green-card was issued BEFORE April 1998. Well mine was issued in Aug 2005 and is valid till 2015 so I guess I don't need a visa. Thank you so much for your response friends I really appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

    Hello Young Man,
    Thank you for your response. No me and my wife will be in London airport for just few hour or so then we fly to India so no time to go out of the airport. Thank god I don't need a visa waste of time and money. Thanks for your response. I really appreciate it.

    It will probably take 6 hrs just to get to your next terminal and gate! lol
    You are right though, you would really not have time to leave the airport anyway, and security takes ages to get back through.

    Have a safe trip
