US citizens intending to travel to the UK for touristic or private visit (e.g., family and friends) purposes are not required to obtain visas for stays of less than 6 months. Additionally, while some countries require a minimum passport validity of at least 3, 6 or 9 months for visitors, the UK has no such requirement. As such, US citizens who wish to enter the UK as tourists and visitors are only required to present a valid US passport.
Those intending to travel to the UK should be able to prove that:
- They intend to visit the UK for no more than 6 months;
- They intend to leave the UK at the end of their visit;
- They have sufficient funds to support themselves while in the UK without the need to work or financial support from public funds.
The United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) employs a 5-tier point-based visa system. US citizens intending to visit the UK for purposes other than tourism or private visit and for stays longer than 6 months should consult the UKBA website for further information on visa requirements and immigration laws. The UKBA website should also help visitors find out whether they need visas to enter the United Kingdom.
Additionally, US citizens can obtain information from the UK Embassy and Consulates General in the United States.
