Though the United Kingdom has a number of very specific visa programs that you may look to take advantage of when you want to travel to the UK, some will be required to apply for a special visitor’s visa because they do not fit the criteria or requirements for the other applications.
These specific special visitor visa programs are almost always given to those that need to enter the United Kingdom for very specific and very special reasons (death in the family, attending a wedding, seeing the birth of a child, or a whole host of other special occasions or special reasons) that wouldn’t be encompassed by the traditional “general visitor’s visa”.
When applying for this specific visa program, you’re going to need to outline why you need the special visitor’s visa, detail the reasons for entry and staying in the United Kingdom, and provide proof about this specific purpose. This should be relatively simple and straightforward (and your contact at the Home Office will be able to help you out in your specific situation). Most special visitor visas are approved without any headache or hassle, though you may be asked to jump through a few more hoops then you would have been otherwise.
