:: Passport valid for six months on exit
:: Two blank visa pages in passport
:: Colour photocopy of passport information page
:: One recent passport photograph
Please write your name on the reverse of the photograph in block capital letters, then attach it to the application form with a paper clip – do not use glue or staples.
:: Completed application form
The application form must be completed in blue or black ink, using block capital letters. Please also ensure you answer all of the required questions; failure to do so may result in your application being rejected. Once the form is completed and signed, please submit both the original and a good-quality photocopy.
:: Proof of residence
Non-UK passport holders must submit an original, valid UK residence card/permit, or have proof of residence in their passport.
EU nationals should instead provide a utility or council tax bill showing their current UK address OR a letter from their employer or school. Bank statements will not be accepted as proof of residence.
:: Proof of travel
This must be provided as a copy of your onward or return flight ticket. Please do not submit the original ticket, as the embassy cannot take responsibility for any items lost in transit.
