I am a 16 year old boy from Albania and I would like to visit my cousin in England who is a British citizen. I have read some information on the uk goverment web page but I am a bit confused with the information. It says that I can visit a family member in UK with a standard visit visa but I don’t know if the word family member includes a cousin? My cousin that lives there will also cover my expenses. Please give me an answer if this kind of visa is suitable for me as a cousin of a British Citizen?

  • Information about Standard Visitor Visa I read at: gov.uk/standard-visitor-visa – Louis Jan 4 at 15:20
  • Standard visitor visa includes that, any family member, friends, business etc. Visiting a cousin would fall under the standard visitor visa category. – BritishSam Jan 4 at 15:25

  • @BritishSam Thank you for your quick answer but I am confused because for as much as I have read there it doesn’t say that with a standard visitor visa you can take a cousin – Louis Jan 4 at 15:29
  • @Louis Anyone who is visiting the UK temporarily for leisure can use the Standard Visitor Visa. The reasons given are just examples. – MJeffryes Jan 4 at 15:31
