Come to the British Embassy, he said, the UK visa application process is relatively easy. Although some friends say is quite difficult and may even get rejection.
They say the British visa is valid for six months, and during that period, you are free to enter the UK without the need to re-apply. Even so, we need to learn tips on filing, in order to run smoothly, as described in the sites UK Visas & Immigration.
