Yes you do. Your UK leave to remain visa is only valid in and for the UK.

A visa can take a couple of weeks sometimes a couple of months.

Thank you. I've emailed the embassy. Hopefully i'll get a response back. I must say the website is not user friendly. Slightly painful to use.

You apply online I think, you will be interviewed and if there is any illegal stay or anything adverse in your history, unlikely you will get the visa, which I understand also costs over £100.

You also need evidence of funds, proof of travel, who you are visiting, evidence of ties in the UK etc.

Is the purpose of your trip a holiday or......?

Great stuff, I understand I need to complete B1 form and go for interview. Going for a short break for xmas shopping.

Thank you very much for your help.

Going for Christmas shopping to the US? Wow, so you should have no problem showing some pre-booked accommodation and strong work ties back to your home country.
Good luck.
