Thanks for your question. I will try to help.

Generally, most models asked to come to the UK for modelling assignments are expected to apply for a permitted engagements visa in order to allow them to come to the UK to carry out the modelling assignment.

The webpage on these visas are here:

This visa may only be granted for one month, because the home office are mindful that such assignments take less than a month. However, this would be the normal form of visa that a model would apply for in such circumstances.,

There is not another appropriate form of visas to last longer than 1 months so you would probably have to proceed on the basis of know that 1 months is the maximum and diarise models/engagements appropriately.

My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back. Please remember to leave positive feedback using the stars at the top of the page.

Kind regards,
