I am applying for a UK Standard Visitor visa for myself and family. I understand we have to fill in separate application forms for each family member. Can I pay the visa fee with my credit card for my wife and two minor children?

  • Of course you can. Nobody expects a minor child to pay his or her own visa fee. By extension it is surely accepted for a single person to pay for all of a family's applications.

  • Don't forget to tell your bank that an irregular payment is coming through so they will not block it

Yes, this is widely accepted in most visa applications. I do it all the time for my friends when we apply for visa as a group.
