The UK began piloting in China, from 11 January 2016, two-year multiple entry visitor visas at the same price as the current standard six month visitor visa. China has made the same offer for British citizens. There are no plans to introduce this in other countries.

The UK has an excellent visa service in India for the increasing number of visitor visa applicants, which makes it quick and easy to apply for a visa. We have more Visa Application Centres in India than in any other country and we have continued to expand our premium and priority services
