Applicants do not need to have friends or family in the UK in order to visit the country. An Electronic Visa Waiver (EVW) allows nationals of Kuwait, Oman, Qatar or the United Arab Emirates to travel to the UK for leisure, business, study, visit family and friends, take part in sports and creative events, receive private medical treatment or purely to visit the country for up to six (6) months. The UK is extremely diverse in its landscape and people and has a wealth of culture, history and scenic beauty that can be discovered and explored. The application is completed online and authorizations will generally be granted within a several hours.
