Applications for a visa to visit the UK are considered on their individual merits, in accordance with the requirements set out in Appendix V to the Immigration Rules, taking into account the information and supporting documents provided in the application. It is for the applicant to satisfy the decision maker that they meet those requirements, including that they are a genuine visitor who will leave the UK at the end of the visit.
