6yrs in UK can I return on Tourist visa?

Post by azzawor » Fri Nov 22, 2019 11:34 am

Hello,

Australian Citizen here.

I have lived in the UK continuously for 6+ years (4 years on Tier 2 ICT + 2 Years on Tier 5 YMS). There are a number of reasons for this which I won't get into. I'm currently on the Tier 5 YMS which expires on the 31st of Dec 2019.

My question is simple. Can I return to the UK on a tourist visa in Jan 2020?

Reasoning: I have quit my job recently (Last day will be Dec 1st 2019). I am returning home (Australia) for Christmas but I plan to return to the UK to in January 2020 purely to sort out my things before I leave for good. I rent a flat, own car, have possessions.

Is there any advice you can give? I plan to bring documents proving I am no longer employed in the UK, I own registered vehicle, I have a lease agreement.

Thanks in advance - Much appreciated.

Yes, for a genuine short visit.

As an Australian national you use the eGates so only your passport is needed.
I do not give immigration advice. I refer you to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor.
