If you are planning to take your Thai girlfriend or Thai wife back to the UK for either a holiday or to live, there will inevitably be a lot of anxiety regarding the outcome of the visa application. It is certainly far from a formality that they will be granted either a UK Tourist Visa or a UK Spouse Visa and the red tape which is involved can be off-putting, not to mention stressful. It is for this reason that using a professional agent is advisable to ensure that you do everything correctly, giving you the best chances of success.
UK Tourist Visa

- Be 18 years of age or older
- Have proof that you intend to return to Thailand when your visa expires
- Have the financial means to support yourself in the UK
- Have means to leave the country when your visa expires
- Have somewhere suitable to stay
UK Spouse Visa
