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?
You're not excluded from the Standard Visitor Visa even if you're a close relative of the person you're visiting.
This category is the one most people will use if they are not travelling to the UK for work/business or study. The use of "family" in the description is in my view, an attempt to make the text more understandable. It doesn't mean that you can only visit family. You can visit friends with whom you have no biological relationship, provided of course, you meet the relevant qualifications for the visa and are granted one.
I have had a few members of my extended family visit me using this route.
