I currently have a valid UK and US Business visit Visa (Both are multiple entry visa's). I will be travelling to Portugal next month and my flights are from Mumbai through London to finally Porto. My travel agent was booking a ticket for a flight which will be landing in London heathrow airport and then get on another plane from Gatwick airport (with 5 hrs transit to get to gatwick)... my question is ...do I need get a transit visa or can I manage with the UK business visa which I already have and have been granted a business visit visa to enter UK.... It would be few hours in London just to get to another airport within London. I will be getting a Schengen visa to enter Portugal. .

    No need for a transit visa for the UK if you already hold a more senior visa – Gayot Fow Jun 15 '15 at 13:14

    Is there a documentation on any government website to say it. Just wanted to make sure so that i don't run into a situation with the immigration official. – RAVINDRA NAVADA Jun 15 '15 at 13:23
  • No, it's not a duplicate of that question, exactly. – Michael Hampton Jun 15 '15 at 23:06
  • @RAVINDRANAVADA Do you have a multientry or a single entry visa? – Karlson Jun 21 '15 at 18:54
