I'm planning to visit the UK next February, and I'm currently in Serbia, soon to travel to Bosnia. I'm a Sri Lankan citizen, and I will be in Bosnia for tourism with visa-free entry, and without a residence visa.
The UK Visa application indicates (although not directly) that I can apply for the visa from a different. I am trying to get my bank to post a bank statement to my address in Bosnia, and I can get other supporting documents in order as well.
My questions is would I be able to apply for the UK Visa from a different country than my residence country. I hold a multi-enter long term Schengen visa which allows me visa-free entry to Bosnia. From the gov.uk web site, it is not 100% clear that a person without a residence can apply for a UK visa from any country.
My major concern would be about the bank statement because it will be from a Sri Lankan bank. The statement will include phone numbers and other ways to contact the bank if the consulate wants to contact them, and signed/stamped by them too.
Would it help if I provide a cover letter indicating why I'm applying from Bosnia? I will be speaking at a conference in UK, and I have another conference a couple weeks before the UK one in Brussels, which makes it difficult for me to visit Brussels, go to my home country Sri Lanka, apply for a UK visa and then travel to UK.
Thank you everyone in advance.
