Uk Visa For Parents- General Vs Family?
Posted 20 December 2012 - 09:47 PM
I wish to apply for UK Visitor visa for my Parents living in India. I'm in UK since Aug 2012 on Tier 2 ICT (Short Term Migrant) visa expiring in Aug 2013.
Should I apply under General Visitor or Family Visitor (Earlier it would have been Family visa, but there have been some rule changes I hear). Could anyone please confirm?

Family visit visa would be better - there will be a right of appeal if the application is refused. Remember to include evidence of the family relationship (ie. your birth certificate showing your parents' names and an English translation).

On the site; the criteria for Family Visitor have below conditions
Additionally the family member you are visiting must :
- be a British citizen;
- be settled in the UK;
- have been granted asylum in the UK; or
- have Humanitarian Protection status.

So just a final confirmation, I should apply under General Visitor category
