I have received my tourist visa with as a fixed date from: 7/6/19 to: 7/12/19 Type: C number of entries: Multiple Duration of stay: 180

Issued in:: UKV102

On: 7/6/19

My simple question is that I am flying on 7/13 arriving in London 7/14/19 and return flight 8/1/19

Am I going to be ok traveling after the fixed date posted on my visa????

Thank you for the input

    Are you confusing the dates (UK date style vs USA)? Your visa starts 7th June and expires on 7th Dec 2019, your flight out of the U.K. departs on 1st August? You can enter on or after 7th June; you must leave on or before 7th Dec – Traveller Jun 26 at 18:08
  • Dates in passports and visas are printed in day-month-year order, not American month-day-year order. Even US passports and visas use D-M-Y. – Michael Hampton Jun 26 at 18:30
  • Michael, I think that was my confusion I was looking an an American month/day/year order and NOT day/month/year!!!! thank you for clarifying this !!!! – GAOS Jun 27 at 14:47
  • @MichaelHampton except for the MRZ, US passports and visas use letters for the month so knowing what order it is is unimportant. – phoog Jun 27 at 19:06

Since today is the 26th of June, we can conclude without ambiguity that the issue date of your visa, 7/6/19, is in day-month-year order, because you have the visa in your possession, meaning it was issued in the past, yet July 6th is in the future. Your visa was issued on June 7th.

Additional evidence in support of this conclusion is that the day-month-year order is the usual order used in the United Kingdom.

Furthermore, a multiple-entry visa that allows a 180-day stay but has only 7 days' validity would be nonsensical.

You must travel before the date on your visa. That date is 7 December 2019. You must leave the UK on or before 7 December 2019 unless you obtain a different visa.

The trip you're asking about, however, is therefore fine.

  • thank you for your response!!! It makes sense of course!!! – GAOS Jun 27 at 14:48
