My first cousin (child of my aunt) is actually my biological sister who was adopted by my aunt in India.
When applying for her visa to UK should i apply using family visitor form or general visitor form.

The family visitor eligibility says the following

To come to the UK as a family visitor, you must be able to show that you will be visiting the following family members in the UK:

  • spouse, civil partner, father, mother, son, daughter, brother or sister;
  • spouse or civil partner's father, mother, brother or sister;
  • stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother or stepsister;


It does not say anything about first cousin or biological sibling.

Can someone please advice.
Thanks
Baljeet

Legally she is a cousin. It's tricky though.

Thanks Vicky. It makes sense.
I will apply for the general visitor visa for her.
