I already have a (now expired) 6 months long standard Visitor visa stamp/vignette in my passport. If I apply again for a new standard visitor visa, will I get a new stamp/vignette in my passport like the last time (with the issue date and expiry date) or the same old stamp/vignette would be modified/altered/stamped to denote the new visa?

So my main question is, for standard UK visitor visa, will the person get a new stamp/vignette each time they are given the visa or the earliest one is somehow used each time?

I am asking this because I applied for a Standard Visitor Visa again this year and received my passport back. But I didn't get any rejection letter nor a new stamp/vignette in my passport. So I was really confused if this was the mistake by the Visa and Immigration office or I am not understanding how this works.

  • @JonathanReez I received my passport back for my second visa application and didn't receive any rejection letter nor any new stamp in my passport. So I wanted to know if this was their mistake or not. – Zephyr Jun 9 '17 at 7:23
  • @Zephyr OK, so your actual question is why you have neither a rejection nor a new visa. Please edit the question so it asks what you actually want to know. – David Richerby Jun 9 '17 at 8:14
  • What were the start and end dates on your first Visa? What are the dates of travel you were asking for a new Visa? – simon at rcl Jun 9 '17 at 15:00
  • @simonatrcl my first visa was between Nov 2015 till May 2016.For new visa I was asking for June till Nov 2017. – Zephyr Jun 9 '17 at 15:33

The old visa will not be re-used. You will get a new one.
