UK visa for Turkish citizen who already has shengen visa

Hi everybody,

Has anyone experience how to get a UK visa for a Turkish citizen which already has a shengen (EU) visa?

In september we will visit Belgium and my wife has a shengen visa valid till end of october 2014.

We would like to visit her sister in London for 1 or 2 days.

As she has an shengen visa, it must not be too difficult to get a short term UK visa I suppose?

Any advice welcome.

Thanks

İt makes no odds whatsoever the Brits do not recognise schengen. You need to apply seperately and the process if neither easy or quick for a trip of two or three days you will need loads of documents. İf you like pm me and İ will send you what we have used successfully.

As beyazbayan says. A UK visa does not let you into Belgium neither.

The UK has changed the company handling the visa applications so make sure you apply to the correct company.

Also be aware that you have to enter your credit card first and any questions you ask will be charged. Ther consul or embassy do not answer visa questions you have to use their private agent. The embassy guide lines do not list all the documents you need and they expect you to know what they want. Refusals are expensive.

Re: UK visa for Turkish citizen who already has shengen visa

Thanks a lot for the advice beyazbayan and bickern.

I don't think we will bother then as it would be just for a 1 or 2 day visit.

Anyway I have sworn a few years ago never to set foot on UK grounds again after me and my brother (2 Belgian citizens) have been treated like criminals by UK police at the chunnel checkpoint in Calais Fr

I won't break my oath then haha.

Thanks again and take care,

W.
