Currently, 4 different types of UK visit visas are available;

- Transit Visitor
- Permitted Paid Engagement Visitor
Standard visitor visas are for people visiting the UK for leisure and specific business reasons. For instance, you should opt for a Standard visitor visa if you want to visit your family in the UK. Similarly, this visa would also get you to the UK if you want to attend a business meeting.
The Home Office monitors all standard visitor visa applications closely. Therefore, you should prepare your supporting documents carefully.
The supporting documents you submit with your standard visitor visa application must portray you as a genuine visitor to the Home Office. Plus, they must indicate you will exit the UK after your trip ends. You’ll also be asked to submit evidence of your ties to the country you are currently living in or your home country. Furthermore, you must show proof of your plans of visiting the UK, such as invitation letters. Lastly, you have to provide evidence of having sufficient funds to pay for your return ticket and accommodation in the UK.
