UK Transit Visa

Post by ChetanOjha » Mon Dec 19, 2016 11:13 am

Hi,

Does anybody know about the UK transit Visa? A friend is travelling from India to UK and have a stopover in London for 8 hours.
I am wondering whether he can apply for UK transit visa so that he can come out of the Immigration and Border Control to meet me (even if it is on the airport). There is no point waiting 8 hours in the Heathrow airside terminal.

Does anybody shade some light on it? Any experience would immensely help.

Thanks.
Chetan

My friend is travelling from India to US. He is having Indian passport. The transit visa is so that he can come out of the airport, instead of waiting in the Airside terminal for 8 hours, and meet me.
