    • how much money do you need to be granted a visa to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks?

      England Dec 25, 2016 at 12:22 PM

      In order to have the visa application approved, you need to show that you have a certain amount of money, the means to look after yourself for the duration of your stay and to get back to your home country on your own. You need to show that you have a reason to return home.. The person who will visit me from morocco is a student who wants to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks, they can also stay with me in my house so there is no need to pay for a hotel or anything like that, even food I would provide everything. But we dont know how much money they must show is in the bank account for the visa to be accepted or denied. There seems to be no guideline about any kind of threshold. Does anyone know more about how much money is needed for the visa application to be accepted?

    • VISA Question

      London Jan 1, 2017 at 5:01 PM

      Hello, guys. Here I have some dilemma. Due to UK's Immigration procedure, citizens of Ukraine need to obtain VISA to step on Her Majesty's soil. But, there are also some rumors that once you have NATIONAL LONG-TERM VISA (in my case, I'm currently holding National Long-term student VISA of Spain) from any EU/Schengen Agreement country, you could travel to GB without another. Please, reply me as soon as you can, because I've tried several times to figure it out both in UK's Government website and Spanish. None of them replied. Thank you in advance.

I have to go through the customs and baggage claim. I have an option on a KLM flight KL1010, which departs at 11:45, is it possible to take this flight or should I wait the next?

      Spending a day or two in Bath on a budget

      by jonathanbarker Online Now Jan 27, 2014 at 3:38 AM

      Next Monday I am travelling to Bath and will be meeting my niece & her boyfriend, who are both twenty years old. I will have a limited budget and although I would like to do the "Touristy" activities, I also want to see the "real" Bath, find cosy pubs where locals go, maybe some local music. I am following many musicians (singer songwriters who are either from the area or now live/study here)
      I am staying in a hostel, (I think they organise a free walking tour).
      I will be meeting the young people about lunch time & I don't want to bore them with too much museum visits, if the weather is fine I want to photo the fine architecture, and in the evening we will want to enjoy a cosy pub with live music.
      I look forward to some suggestions please.

My English colleague painted a bleak picture of park & ride system saying that I would have to wait in the rain for the bus to the city center, that it would be very slow and that I would never find the bus way back. Is it that bleak or park & ride system work as well as promised in the websites ?

      I'm planning on staying in Bath for a three day decompression vacation before some business travel in London and the continent. Anyway I know nothing about Bath and would like some inputs into what to do and esp. where to stay. Since this is a personal part of the trip, I'd like to keep thing relatively simple and cheap -won't have a car so keeping things in walking distance is important and lodging in the 50 pd area seems about right.

      Good pubs, restaurants and things to do during the day would be most helpful. I'll be there Thursday, Friday and part of Saturday then off to London.

      DAY 1:
      We ride the National Coach Bus to Bath, which will arrive at 12:50pm
      Go to hotel
      Royal Crescent
      Royal Crescent Museum
      Victoria Park
      Day 2:

      Roman Baths
      Bath Abbey
      Parade Gardens

      Day 3:
      Our coach bus doesn't leave till 3:25pm, so we were thinking we'd go somewhere? But with our luggages with us, it might not be a good idea. Any ideas of how to spend the day after checking out from the hotel till 3 in the afternoon?
