  • your connecting flight departs from a different airport
  • your connecting flight departs on a different day to when you arrive
  • there is nowhere for you to stay in the airport overnight
  • you are transiting through the UK to get to Ireland

You will be exempt from the requirement of getting a UK Transit Visa only if you have a:

  • EEA family permit
