    • 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?

      Should I do it?

      London Dec 23, 2016 at 7:05 PM

      I want to send my parents to London....(no, not permanently). Can anyone recommend a hotel which is reasonably priced? It doesnt need to be in the middle of London but not too far away either. They are in their mid 70's and I dont want them to have to walk too far. Thanks so much for your help. Happy Holidays everyone. With Love,

    • Question about a layover

      Heathrow Jan 5, 2017 at 4:00 PM

      I am from the USA and traveling internationally for the first time to Newcastle. I have a layover at Heathrow during the travel. I know in the USA you have to go through immigration and customs at the first port of entry into the country. Do I have to go through immigration and customs before I catch my flight to newcastle? I am traveling with American Airlines for the whole trip.

    • 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.

    • Gluten Allergy

      by VTANDJL Online Now Aug 29, 2008 at 3:08 AM

      I have coeliacs disease (gluten and wheat allergy).

      My husbands family are going to Kalalas in Folkestone for his nephews birthday tomorrow and have asked me to come.

      They have asked the resteraunt if they cater for somebody in my position but they dont even seem to know what gluten is.

      I wonder if you have any further information on this for me?

      Many thanks, Vanessa Lewis

    • Holiday let in Folkestone?

      by bighead_cat Online Now Apr 23, 2007 at 6:07 AM

      We just bought a house on East Cliff in Folkestone. We don't know much about the town, but the view of the house is lovely, we got carried away before thinking of what we can do with it. Is holiday let common in Folkestone? Are these many tourists visiting Folkestone these days? Any comment will be appreciated. Thanks!

      Best hotel for Eurotunnel

      by dangui Online Now Mar 4, 2005 at 12:25 PM

      Need your thoughts - can you suggest a good hotel near the Eurotunnel Station? I think we need to use the one in Ashford? We would like to park the car and take a day trip to Paris...so we need a hotel for 2 nights that's close to the station...the train leaves very early in the morning. Can you suggest a hotel with character, 90 Pounds or less for a double? Thanks for your help.
