We (myself, wife and two children) are planning to visit UK in the summer (I have already started to regret it!!).

I have some visa related questions:

  1. Does each applicant have to create their own login/password and create an application?
  2. Do minors need their own login/password and application ? do they need their own email address?
  3. Do I have to make four separate payments, one for each of us?
  4. If I submit four separate applications, what is the guarantee that I will get a same-day appointment for all of us. Obviously, I hate to make four separate trips to the interview center which means my wife and I have to take time off from work four times.
  5. Is the visa fee for children the same as for adults?
  • There's information on how to apply for multiple people including children in this Q&A. Perhaps review it, and then edit your question to focus on what is still unclear. Normally, there should be 1 question only. – mkennedy Mar 16 '17 at 17:09
  • Hi,Thanks for responding. I already read the earlier link that you mentioned but i still wasn't clear. I am not sure where Part 7 and 9 are in the visa apply process. The sections are not numbered. I am trying to apply for visa through www.gov.uk website which is a sorry excuse for a website. – Anand Doraiswamy Mar 16 '17 at 17:53
  • Hi, I saw these 2 points in the previous link are these: 1. Children need their own login and password. 2. A single email address can be used for the entire family. The 2 points seem to contradict each other. If point #1 is true, then how can point #2 be true too ? I tried to use my own email address for one of my sons and every time I login, it keeps taking me to my application as the primary and I am not able to create my son's application. So, it's clear that my 2 sons need their own email addresses and logins. – Anand Doraiswamy Mar 16 '17 at 18:26
  • Did you use your email for the login name? Don't, basically. The login names must be different, but the email you use within the login can be the same. (I'm assuming). – mkennedy Mar 16 '17 at 22:33
  • Hi Mkenndy, On the gov.uk website, there is no such thing as "login name". To create a new application, they only ask for an "email address" and a password. if you use an existing email address, it just takes you to the existing application instead of creating a new application. It sucks! obviously gov.uk is a newly designed system and they are still evolving it. – Anand Doraiswamy Mar 17 '17 at 16:54
