What is the Best Time of Year to Take My Thai Girlfriend to the UK?

What is the best time of year to take my Thai girlfriend to the UK? Most Thais visit the UK in the winter months, so they can see snow.

If you are planning to take your Thai girlfriend to the UK, you will no doubt be wondering what the best time of year is. Although Thai girls often say that they like the cold, they may not be fully aware of how cold the UK gets in winter. If they can stand the cold, this will be quite a good time to take them, especially if you live in an area of the UK that frequently gets snow. However, if cold weather is not something that appeals to your girlfriend, the summer months are by far the best option. She cannot travel to the EU on this visa; she would need a Schengen visa to travel to the European Union.


What visa would my Thai girlfriend need to visit the UK?


Your girlfriend would require a UK general visitor visa to visit the UK, regardless of the time of year. While it is one of the easier UK visas to obtain, the process should not be taken lightly. It is vital to ensure that all the application forms are filled out correctly and accompanied by the necessary supporting documents.


Requirements for a UK Tourist Visa


Your Thai girlfriend will need to prove:

  • That she has the means to support herself in the UK.
  • That she has the means to leave the UK when her visa expires.
  • That she intends to and has reason to leave when her visa expires.
  • That she has somewhere suitable to stay.
  • She does not need travel insurance, but it may be a good idea to buy some.
