Who is Eligible For the Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa?

UK Visas & Immigration requires the following requirements in order to grant you a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa:

What Nationalities Need a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa?

Visa nationals are individuals who, due to their nationality, need a Visit Visa in order to enter the UK as a visitor. Visitors who require a visit visa must apply before they travel to the UK.

A list of nationalities that require a Visit Visa prior to visiting the UK as a visitor has been published by the Home Office. Some visa nationals may be able to enter the UK as a Visitor upon arrival under this list. Our expert team will be able to check and confirm whether you require a visa for your visit to the UK.

Non-visa nationals can normally apply for entry as Visitors upon arrival in the UK. Nonetheless, visitors without visas must meet the requirements for entry as Visitors, so upon arrival they should be prepared to explain, for example, the purpose of their trip and how they intend to be accommodated and maintained in the UK, as well as their travel plans for returning home. 

Non-visa nationals, including those from the EU or EEA, can enter the UK as a Visitor and do not need to apply for a Visit Visa.

Unsure about whether you require a visa? Speak to our expert team now to confirm if you are required to apply for a visit visa before being granted entry into the UK.

Our experienced UK immigration Solicitors can help you with your immigration process.

What if I Am a Patient That Needs To Stay For Longer Than 6 Months?

The Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa can be granted for up to 11 months in some cases. Applicants seeking an 11-month Medical Treatment Visit Visa that is intended for the purpose of receiving private medical treatment must also submit evidence that their proposed treatment is likely to last longer than six months but not longer than 11 months. You must also present an authorisation form from the government of that country if you intend to receive NHS treatment under a reciprocal healthcare arrangement. The form should clearly state that the proposed treatment will not last more than 11 months. In order to receive treatment for a period of greater than six months in the UK, the Home Office expects to see a clear need for you to be here

Pre-Travel Requirements for the Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa

Before you travel to the UK, you must arrange your private medical treatment.

Your doctor or consultant in the UK must write a letter describing your medical condition requiring consultation or treatment, the estimated costs and expected duration of any treatment (which must be of a finite duration), and where the consultation or treatment will be provided.

You will need to provide an authorisation form issued by the government of the country from which you will receive NHS treatment under a reciprocal healthcare agreement between the UK and another country.

In addition, you must demonstrate to the Home Office that you have sufficient funds to cover all reasonable treatment costs.

Our experienced UK immigration Solicitors can help you with your immigration process.

Who Can I Be an Organ Donor For?

To be eligible to become an organ donor, you must satisfy the Home Office that you genuinely intend to do so, or that you have a close genetic or personal relationship with an identified recipient in the UK.

The donor needs to be a blood relative of the recipient to qualify as a genetic match.  Close personal relationships usually involve a visitor’s spouse, partner, or close friends.

Medical tests will be required to show that you are a compatible donor to the identified recipient, or that you are undergoing additional testing to determine whether you are a potential donor.

It is essential you provide a letter confirming that you meet the above criteria and indicating when and where the planned organ transplant or medical tests will take place from the coordinator of the Living Donor Kidney Transplant team of your UK NHS Trust or a UK registered medical practitioner who holds an NHS consultant post or appears on the General Medical Council’s Specialist Register.  If you intend to arrive in the UK within three months of the date of the letter, the letter must be dated no more than three months beforehand.

At the time of the planned organ transplant, the recipient must be lawfully present in the UK and can receive treatment either on the NHS or in a private hospital.

Our experienced UK immigration Solicitors can help you with your immigration process.

What am I allowed to do with a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa?

Overseas graduates of dental, medical, and nursing schools, overseas employees of overseas companies, and overseas training company employees are eligible for the Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa.

The visitor should be trained in work practices and techniques not available in his or her home country. Training should usually consist of classroom sessions or involve familiarisation or observation. Practical training can be allowed as long as the visitor is not performing a role or training on the job.

Visitors can learn how to use a piece of equipment in the UK, but the Home Office will carefully assess how long they intend to learn and will make sure that there is no possibility that they will work for the company in the UK.

Medics, dentists, or nurses who graduated from overseas schools may:

  • Provide written confirmation of the offer to take up the post, and confirmation that they have not previously undertaken this activity in the UK, as long as these are unpaid and involve no patient treatment;
  • Perform the following tests/exams in the UK:
  • The General Medical Council provides written confirmation of the Professional and Linguistic Assessment Board test;
  • Candidates from overseas can receive written confirmation of their Objective Structured Clinical Examinations from the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

An overseas company or organisation may provide training to its employees in the UK to learn work practices and techniques required for employment overseas that are not readily available in the visitor’s home country.

Training may be delivered by a trainer employed by an overseas firm on behalf of a UK-based company if the overseas business is contracted to deliver global training on behalf of the UK-based company’s international corporate group.

As Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visitors are subcategories of Standard Visitors, they are also permitted to undertake other activities that the Standard Visitor route permits.

How are My Intentions Assessed For The Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa?

As part of your application for a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa, you will be required to satisfy the Home Office that you are genuinely seeking to enter the United Kingdom for a permitted purpose. In addition, you must assure the Home Office that you will leave the United Kingdom at the end of your visit and will not reside in the United Kingdom for prolonged periods through frequent or successive visits or make the UK your place of residence.

In assessing your application, the Home Office will consider the following factors:

Home Office officials may doubt your authenticity as a visitor if you do not have many close ties to your country of residence and have several close relatives living in the United Kingdom, if you have previously attempted to deceive the Home Office in an immigration application, and if there are discrepancies in your statement and your sponsor’s statement.

Often, we see that, as a result of applicants making applications themselves, UKVI has highlighted discrepancies and treated them as a deliberate attempt to deceive the Home Office. We regularly hear horror stories from clients who innocently made applications without legal guidance, intending to save on legal fees, but have not understood the immigration rules properly and are now battling to prove that the information they gave was in good faith, albeit contained administrative errors.

If you are unclear about whether your intentions meet the requirements or are concerned about the impact of how a previous application may affect your proposed visit, get help from our experts now to get clear, bespoke guidance.

Is There An English language Requirement?

There is no English proficiency requirement for applicants for Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa.

However, having a limited command of English can cause many problems whilst preparing and making an application and applying the correct rules and considerations.

Our team are bilingual and can provide you with advice and guidance in languages other than English upon request.

Our experienced UK immigration Solicitors can help you with your immigration process.

Am I Required To Meet Any Financial Requirements?

There are no specific requirements as to your financial situation under this visa type, but you will be expected to have enough funds to cover all reasonable costs associated with your visit (e.g., travel, maintenance, and accommodation), without the need to work or access public funds.

A permitted financial institution must hold your funds.

A third party may cover your travel, maintenance, and accommodation costs if the third party has a genuine professional or personal relationship with you, if they do not break immigration laws, and if they are able to support you throughout your visit.

Our expert team can check your plans and guide you through the requirements to ensure that your circumstances can satisfy UK Visa Rules.

Our experienced UK immigration Solicitors can help you with your immigration process.

Is It Possible To Work on a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa?

A Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visitor is not permitted to work in the UK or, with few exceptions, to receive any payment for activities undertaken in the UK.

Thus, Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visitors are not allowed to take up employment, establish or run a business as a sole trader, work for an organisation or business in the UK, undertake a work placement or internship in the UK, or otherwise provide or sell goods or services in the UK.

During their visit to the UK, Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visitors are permitted to perform activities related to their employment overseas, such as responding to emails or answering phone calls.  However, the main purpose of your visit to the UK should be to engage in a permitted activity, rather than to remotely work from the UK.

Visitors who are seeking employment or attending job interviews can also come to the UK as Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visitor If you are successful in obtaining employment, you will have to leave the UK and get entry clearance before starting work.

If you are looking for long term work in the UK, there are a number of alternative visit types which will allow you to do so.

Our team are experts in this area and will be happy to assess your needs and identify the best route for you.

How Long Do Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visas last?

You can apply for a Visit Visa that is valid for either a 6 month, 2 year, 5 year, or 10 year period if you wish to visit the UK on a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa.  

While the validity period of your Visit Visa is valid, you can enter and leave the UK more than once, unless your Visit Visa has been endorsed for single or dual entry, you can visit the UK no more than once every six months.

What Are The Fees?

As with most things in life, think accountant, doctor, electrician, it is possible to do it yourself if your suitably qualified and competent. You can complete your own visa application if you feel you have the required understanding of the Home Office rules, requirements and specified evidence thresholds. However, it is not ordinarily recommended if you are not totally comfortable with understanding and satisfying UKVI immigration rules.

It is worth noting that this type of visa is the most refused visa type out of all categories.

Almost every visa has an associated processing government application fee.

It is important to note that this is an administrative fee that you will be charged for the application to be processed irrespective of the outcome.

In the event that you have made an inadequate application or are refused, the processing fee would have already been utilised and therefore, it will not be refunded.

Aside from the application fees, a refusal is likely to have far reaching implications both practical and financial.

If you do not have a strong history of previous compliant visits to the UK, it is unlikely you will be granted a visa for longer than 6 months initially

The Home Office application fee for a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa is currently £100 for stays up to six months.

The Home Office application fee for a Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa for a stay of more than 6 months but not more than 11 months is £200.

Medical Treatment and Organ Donation Visit Visa that are valid for 2 years, 5 years, or 10 years will cost you £376, £670, or £837, respectively, at the Home Office.

Please note, the above fees are administrative only and do not cover our professional fees for legal representation.

We provide a full representation service for one transparent, affordable fee to handle your entire case.
