I am planning to travel from Chicago to Delhi via London with intention of ~36 hrs in transit.

I am Indian resident, with valid US visa (until 2015).

Going by UK border agency information here I will be needing land side visa.

I have following queries:

  1. Is it possible to get the land side visa on arrival or do I need to apply prior to leaving US?
  2. If it is on arrival, and for some reason I am denied, will I need to wait for connecting flight within airport for that long?
  3. What is the procedure and fees? I scanned through the UK border agency site, but could not find a procedure, and further details. It seems very scattered.
  4. I see that one of the flight option has 48 hrs 15 min difference. Can landside visa be applied for this case?
