From the British governments perspective, South Africans are defined as non-EU citizens (based on the UK immigration legislation) and therefore South Africans are expected to apply for prior permission to be permitted to pass through the UK border (known as “entry clearance”).
Permission to pass through the UK border is granted in the form of a UK visa.
There is a selection of different types of UK visas. Each visa grants a different set of permission to pass through the UK border. Knowing which UK visa best applies to the applicants (in terms of their intent matching the conditions granted by the relevant visa) is the first of 12 steps involved in the case.
There are 8 broad categories that the UK visas are broken into. The British have then broken each category into separate visas.
| – Visitor visas
– Visiting family and friend
| – Transit Visas
– Direct Airside Transit visa
| – Birth Rights
– UK born applicant
| – Student– Full time studies.
– Tier 4 (General) Student visa
| – Family Dependency– Immediate family members.
– Partners in married like relationships
| – Highly Valued Migrants– Investors and Entrepreneurs.
– Tier 1 (Investor) visa
| – Skilled Migrants– UK Work Permit.
– Tier 2 (General) visa
| – Temporary Work– Charity, Sport and Religious Workers.
– Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) visa
