UK transit visa

Post by Manikandan » Sat Jun 09, 2018 1:04 pm

Hi guys,

I’m currently working in Ireland. I’m traveling back to India to meet my family and stay with them for a short period of time. I’m transmitting through UK. My flight details are like DUB->LHR (T5) and my outward connection flight is from (T3) to Delhi. I’m very much confused whether or not I’m in need of a Direct Air side transit visa. Can you guys please help me with this.

Tons of Thanks,
Mani

You don't need the transit Visa for the UK if you have the GNIB card with you.

you don't need visa, guess you are taking Virgin Atlantic flight from LHR to Delhi.
you don't even go near to immigration for this terminal change.

Thanks for the information guys.

What about the return trip. Does this time I need a DATV. I will be traveling from Delhi to London heathrow and London to Dublin with change in terminals. Only confusion with the result are we do not have a BC or BIVS remarks in comments section. I checked the UK transit visa requirements and found the below results. Could you guys please advise on this.

You’ll need a visa to pass through the UK (unless you’re exempt)
You’ll usually need to apply for a UK standard visitor visa.

Transiting without a visa
You might be eligible for ‘transit without visa’ if:

you arrive and depart by air
have a confirmed onward flight that leaves on the day you arrive or before midnight on the day after you arrive
have the right documents for your destination (for example a visa for that country)
You must also have an Irish biometric visa (marked ‘BC’ or ‘BC BIVS’ in the ‘Remarks’ section) and an onward flight ticket to the Republic of Ireland.

E-visas or e-residence permits are not acceptable for transiting through immigration control without a visa.

All visas and residence permits must be valid.

You won’t be able to transit without a visa if a Border Force officer decides you don’t qualify under the immigration rules.

Thanks,
mani
