I'm going on an Ocean Liner Cruise from Southampton to New York. I am an Indian citizen and I live in India. I have a valid US visa. I am planning to fly to Southampton a day before the cruise. My question is, do I need to take a visitor visa for the UK? I used the online calculator to see if I need a visa, and it says that I don't need one as long as I am traveling to the US. However, I'm not sure about two things:
- Will I be asked for a visa when boarding my flight to Southampton from Kochi?
- Will I be allowed to actually exit the airport to head to the Southampton port? I know that I will be allowed to stay within the airport, but will I actually be allowed to exit the airport and go to the port?
