Visa Waiver for Oman, Qatar and the UAE nationals

16 December 2013

A new visa regime was introduced for the nationals of Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates willing to visit the United Kingdom. From 1 January 2014 it is possible for the applicants from the 3 countries to travel to the UK under the Electronic Visa Waiver (EVW) valid for visits of up to 6 months. The EVW offers a simplified visa process and is an alternative for the existing visit visa.

The application form is available from 9 December 2013 and can be downloaded from the visa applications system: www.visa4uk.fco.gov.uk.  The EVW must be completed at least 48 hours before the planned travel to the UK and is only valid for the visit immigration category. Therefore, applicants who wish to come to the UK for work or study must follow the appropriate visa application process.

If you have any questions related to the Electronic Visa Waiver please contact one of our immigration specialists.
