Information for International Travelers

Entry into the UK

Citizens from most countries do not need a visa, but will be required to show a valid passport for a stay in the UK of six months or less. Citizens from some countries may need to apply for a visa; this should be done well in advance of traveling. If you need an invitation letter to include with your visa application, please email ISPD Headquarters.
