Do I need a visa?
Find out which is the appropriate UK visa for you.
All non-European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA)/Swiss nationals need permission to enter or remain in the UK.
Nationals of most countries must apply for a visa in order to travel to and enter the UK. We refer to these nationals as ‘visa nationals’.
If you are a visa national, you must have been granted a UK visa before you travel to the UK.
Nationals of certain countries do not need to apply for permission to enter the UK until they arrive in the UK.
We refer to these nationals as ‘non-visa nationals’. If you are a non-visa national, you do not need to have a UK visa before you travel to the UK.
Information for non-EU/EEA/Swiss Nationals

Information for EU/EEA/Swiss Nationals
If you are a national of an EU/EEA country, or Switzerland you do not need permission to live, work or study in the UK.
You should ensure that you travel to the UK using your EU/EEA/Swiss passport or national ID card.
If your main purpose for living in the UK is study, you are required to have comprehensive sickness insurance (CSI).
If you will only stay in the UK temporarily, a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will be acceptable evidence of comprehensive sickness insurance.
