Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX do not quality for DATV as I don't hold any of the 13 requirements, plus I will need to exit the heathrow airport and get to Gatwick Airport:
Additionally, if you are a national of country covered by the DATV system, you (or a person with whom you arrive in the UK) must hold:
1) a valid entry visa for Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA, and a valid airline ticket for travel via the UK, as part of a journey to or from one of those countries; or2) a valid airline ticket for travel via the UK as part of a journey from Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA, if you are transiting the UK no more than 6 months after the date when you last entered Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the USA with a valid entry visa for that country; or3) a valid USA I-551 permanent resident card issued on or after 21 April 1998; or4) an expired I-551 permanent resident card issued on or after 21 April 1998, accompanied by an I-797 extension letter issued by the Bureau of Citizenship; or5) a valid Canadian permanent resident card issued on or after 28 June 2002; or6) a valid Australian or New Zealand residence visa; or7) a valid uniform format category D visa for entry to a state in the European Economic Area (EEA); or8) a valid uniform format residence permit issued by an EEA state under Council Regulation (EC) number 1030/2002; or9) a valid UK residence card; or10) a valid EEA family permit issued by the UK government; or11) a diplomatic or service passport issued by the People's Republic of China; or12) a diplomatic or official passport issued by India; or13) a diplomatic or official passport issued by Vietnam.
Sorry, yes, I meant to say landside. You say to have all parts of trip evidenced, however, I don't want to buy plane tickets until I know I get the visa, as they are non-refundable. Would they need to see the proof of plane tickets? And under which circumstances would they generally deny me this kind of visa? Thank you.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX see that the application for this visa requires some proof of work and bank account statements showing transactions for 3-6 months... I cannot show the bank statements, and my work is a internet based company based in the USA, who I do customer service for from Belarus. Is this going to be a problem?
nevermind, I was looking at wrong document list, they don't require bank statements for this visa.
Isn't a roundtrip to barbados through UK a low risk to the fact that I may not return? I would think going to USA would be higher risk.
Thank you. I'd also like to add that I'm going to Barbados with a friend, who is coming from US, and they may be paying for my expenses. Im curious if it's wise to state and show that someone else is paying for my trip, or is it better if I'm doing it myself? Thank you.
