2012 Olympic Games

From 1 January 2012 UKBA will begin processing visitor visas for those coming from outside the UK to watch the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Games will be the biggest event that the UK has hosted and many extra visitors will arrive during the busy summer period in 2012. UKBA has announced that if a visa is to be issued , you will have a start date that will cover you for the whole Olympic and Paralympic Games period although the announcement does state that the visa will normally be valid for the usual 6 month duration. See UKBA web link for further details. http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/newsarticles/2011/december/70-olympics-visas
