Improving visitor visa chances for charities

An article on Third Force News looks at the practicalities of the new visa system introduced by the government. Written by Diversity Travel, it welcomes new permitted activities added under the standard visa that will benefit charities. These include allowing foreign visitors to undertake incidental charity volunteering, provided it lasts no more than 30 days in total.

The article does however say “it remains to be seen if enough has been done to reduce difficulties experienced by charities trying to obtain visas for their visitors to the UK”. More details and summary advice in Third Force News article, with a fuller guide on “how to maximise your chances of success when making a visa application for your visitors” from Diversity Travel resource page (pdf, 439KB).
