I live in India. While filling the application form for tourist visa to UK, I found a field called "Intended travel date". Should the travel date mentioned in this field be the same as my actual travel date or is a difference of 4-5 days ok?
A UK Standard visit visa will usually start from the date indicated in this field, therefore enter the actual or intended date. UKVI does not require you to pre-book travel reservations, so once you receive your visa you can travel whenever you like after the visa start date.
