Teachers guide to applying for a UK visa

  1. Visit https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa to determine your visa eligibility for the UK
 
2. You should apply for your visa a maximum of 3 months before you are due to begin teaching in the UK.
This application has two parts: an Online Application and in-person Biometrics Appointment.
In Canada, teachers will submit the online portion of their application at: https://www.visa4uk.fco.gov.uk/home/welcome

3. After you submit your online application and attend your Biometrics Appointment, your passport along with supporting documents will be mailed away to be processed.
This process takes 4-6 weeks. You will receive your passport in the mail, along with a visa letter.
