I have a son in UK and was wondering if I could get a long term UK visa.
Searching on the web I hear that long-term visas (2, 5, 10 years) are almost never given and you have to show you have an ongoing need to travel to UK which is unlikely to change in the future.
I have never applied for a UK visa but my son works there and I would like to go on weekends to visit him.
Do you think I should apply for a 2, 5 year visa or just a standard 6 month visa?
Also, do you know if the standard 6 month allows me for multiple entries or only 1 entry for a stay up to 6 months?
