Welcoming Games Family Members for the Commonwealth Games

The 20th Commonwealth Games are fast approaching. Individuals needing a visa to prepare for the Games will be able to apply for a Commonwealth Games visit visa from 27 May 2013.

The visa will allow multiple entry to the UK, with a maximum stay of 6 months for a single visit. It will be valid until 3 September 2014, with the Games taking place from 23 July to 3 August 2014.

Applying for a Commonwealth Games visit visa

You should apply for your visa on our online application system. You will need to apply for a ‘Commonwealth Games visit visa’.

If you are unable to apply online you can complete a paper application VAF1C. You can find form VAF1C in the business visitors section of the UKBA website. You must state on your form that you are applying for a ‘Commonwealth Games visit visa’.

When you apply, you will need to provide a letter from the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee, to confirm your Games-related role. You will also need to provide biometric information (unless you are normally exempt from this requirement).
