I am a 21 year old from Canada applying for a Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa.

This is my travel history in the UK:

1: October 20th 2017 - Mid January 2018

2: Approx January 29th 2018 - January 31st 2018 (was in UK for around 2-3 days just catching a flight from London to Norway

3: March 15th - April 31st 2018

On my application it asks for my two most recent trips to the UK. I can ONLY list two maximum. I cannot list all three.

Should I not include my transit trip as it was so minor?

Basically should I list my March and January trips?

Or should I list my March and October trips?

I don't want to seem like I'm hiding my October history. But I want to do what's best.

Thank you!


A three day trip was not a transit trip. To you it appears so, to UK immigration it is not. UK specifically limits transit to 48 hours

Visitor in Transit visa

You might need a Visitor in Transit visa if you’re from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland and you’ll:

  • be changing flights in the UK on your way to another country

  • go through immigration control, for example to check in your luggage for a connecting flight

  • leave the UK within 48 hours

  • not work or study while in the UK

List the last two.
