Travelling to UK

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband has his Conditonal PR Card and we are discussing travelling overseas to see his family. We want to take over our daughter (infant) and myself to see the folks. I know our daughter and I both have to get passports, but what other documentation do we need to carry. He still has his UKC valid passport.

We've been reading the UK website and kind of amazed at what all you must have for the "General Visitor Visa".

If anyone can offer advice for travelling, I sure would appreciate it.

You dont need anything other than your US passport. My husband and I have been back to the UK many times over the last few years all you need to do is complete the landing card that is given out on the flight and hand that to the immigration officer in the UK. I go with my husband through the NON- UK/EU line and just hand my UK passport (I am a duel Citizen) and my husbands US passport to the officer and they ask how long we are staying and then stamp my husbans passport with the visa wavier allowing him to stay in the UK/EU for 6 months..

We have nevr had any problems at any of the UK airports...

Thanks for you both, for such a quick response and answer. I feel a lot more at ease now and will get on with making some plans for the future. :)

Looks a lot like what our UK SOs are sometimes asked for when they come to visit during the visa process. Others have gotten the third degree by UK immigration as well. Apparently the UK thinks as much of themselves and people wanting to come there to stay as the US does. :D

In general, for the vast majority of people the experience is as the above, especially if you are planning a short visit like you are. :)


K-1:

January 28, 2009: NOA1

June 4, 2009: Interview - APPROVED!!!

October 11, 2009: Wedding

AOS:

December 23, 2009: NOA1!

January 22, 2010: Bogus RFE corrected through congressional inquiry "EAD waiting on biometrics only" Read about it here.

March 15, 2010: AOS interview - RFE for I-693 vaccination supplement - CS signed part 6!

March 27, 2010: Green Card recieved

ROC:

March 1, 2012: Mailed ROC package

March 7, 2012: Tracking says "notice left"...after a phone call to post office.

More detailed time line in profile.

Just want to add that I have been asked once for proof of US ties when entering the UK. I was carrying a bank statement and my lease at the time which did the trick.
