You can come to the UK as a visitor in transit if you will arrive in the UK, pass through immigration control and then leave the UK within 48 hours (or 24 hours if you are travelling under the 'travel without visa' concession). This is called transiting landside. 

If you will arrive on a flight, remain in the arrival lounge of the airport without passing through immigration control, and then depart on another flight from the same airport, you do not need to come here as a visitor in transit. This is called transiting airside. 

To come to the UK as a visitor in transit, you must be able to show that you:

  • are in transit to a final destination outside the Common Travel Area (Ireland, the UK, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands);
  • intend and are able to proceed at once to another country; and
  • are assured of entry there; and
  • intend and are able to leave the UK within 48 hours (or 24 hours) .

You may not take any employment while you are in the UK. If you are a visa national, you will need to obtain UK visa before you come to the UK as a visitor in transit.

If you want to transit the UK on your way to another country in the Common Travel Area, then you cannot come to the UK as a visitor in transit.
