About the UK Electronic Visa Waiver
The UK EVW is a single entry Electronic Travel Authorization, launched in 2014, for eligible travellers who wish to visit the United Kingdom for a stay of up to 6 consecutive months.
Passport holders from Kuwait, Oman, Qatar or the United Arab Emirates can apply for an Electronic Visa Waiver (EVW) prior to travelling to the UK before any short stay up to a total of 6 months.
The UK Electronic Visa Waiver allows holders to travel anywhere in the UK to enjoy a holiday, take in the many tourist attractions, or visit family or friends. Holders of an EVW are also able to register for short courses relating to areas of general interest, self-improvement or to learn English, as well as explore educational opportunities to pursue further studies in the UK.
Finally, holders of a UK EVW are also able to conduct business meetings and negotiations while in the United Kingdom. Although it is not possible to undertake paid employment with an EVW, holders are able to meet with prospective employers or recruiters and seek out employment opportunities during their stay.
An approved UK Electronic Visa Waiver is a single entry travel authorization which permits a single entry to the United Kingdom and is valid for a 6-month stay in the country.
To obtain a UK Electronic Visa Waiver, applicants are able to complete a simple and straightforward online application form, eliminating the need to apply in person. Applicants must provide their personal details, travel information and passport data on the form, answer a few security questions, and pay the EVW fee to receive an approved travel authorization for the UK sent by email.
