I'm in US on a student visa, currently expired; my last entry was 3 years ago. I do have an approved I-797 (H1-B). Can I travel through London without a transit visa? BTW, the layover is 3 hours and I don't need to change the terminal.

I tried applying for transit visa on UK Embassy portal but, with my expired student visa on my passport, it doesn't let me go to next step.

Since I can't transit without visa and I need a visa for the UK connection, what should I do?

  • Did you most recently enter the US less than six months before your anticipated transit? – phoog Nov 25 '18 at 19:07
  • No, it's been 3 years since my last US entry – Nickhalden Nov 25 '18 at 19:18
  • Sorry to close your question, but the conditions allowing transit without visa (both direct airside transit and "landside" transit) are listed at the duplicate question, and you do not seem to meet any of them. Your problem, therefore, is whether you can apply for a DATV in the US and, if so, how. Perhaps you could ask a new question about that. This is of course if you do not have a nationality that allows visa-free entry to the UK, but I assume you've already taken that into account and determined that you do not. – phoog Nov 25 '18 at 19:20
  • unfortunately I didn't find answers in any of the posts you mentioned. See ,y question, I asked also for "I tried applying for transit visa on UK embassy portal, but with my expired student visa on my passport, it doesn't let me go to next step." – Nickhalden Nov 25 '18 at 19:23
  • I wish I could post a picture, it doesn't let me here – Nickhalden Nov 25 '18 at 19:25
