Can my Thai girlfriend apply for a UK visa if she has been rejected in the past?

Can my Thai girlfriend apply for a UK visa if she has been rejected in the past?

The simple answer to this question is “yes, in almost all circumstances”. The most common reason for a UK Tourist Visa being rejected is because the paperwork was incorrectly completed. However, if you use a professional company such as Thai Visa Express and you are prepared to sponsor your Thai girlfriend’s trip to the UK, the chances are, she will be able to get a visa when she applies again.


What does my Thai girlfriend need to get a UK Tourist Visa?


The requirements for your Thai girl’s visa are relatively straightforward, but you must remember that it is her that the British Embassy in Bangkok will be interested in and not you. Your Thai girlfriend must have:

  • A valid passport with at least 12 months remaining
  • Enough funds to be able to support herself while in the UK
  • A solid reason to return to Thailand
  • She means to return to Thailand or leave the UK when her visa expires
  • Somewhere to stay while in the UK
  • Evidence of travel dates
  • Details of her income


How long will she be able to stay in the UK?


Assuming that your girlfriend is granted a UK Tourist Visa on this occasion, the visa will generally be valid for twelve months, although, in some circumstances, she may be granted a visa for up to ten years. However, it would be best if you understood that your Thai girlfriend will only be able to stay in the UK for a maximum of six months out of the twelve, and she will not be allowed to work or have recourse to public funds.
