I am an Indian citizen, with Irish short stay visa (under BIVS). I am going from Delhi to LHR, and then Stansted to Dublin. So I need to change airport. In that case do I need a UK transit visa? I got this from the UK embassy website, but I am a little confused. Can anyone please confirm this?
What if I’m flying to Ireland first, but my flight transits through a UK airport?
That is fine, and you can do that with a BIVS visa issued by Ireland. You will need to complete the transit and travel to an official port of entry in Ireland within 24 hours of arriving at the UK airport.
