We are getting a lot of UK visa questions here and the high number of already existing questions and answers makes it hard to keep track at times. Let's create a community wiki to track all the canonical questions which can be used to close-vote repeating questions, similar to the Schengen one.

I've created two community wiki answers below, please feel free to extend them.

  • @pnuts filtering what by tags? I don't understand. Filter out to find the canonical UK visa questions? Or to delete duplicates?

  • @pnuts I will slowly go over the visa-refusal + uk tagged Qs and try to clean them up. Although the circumstances are so wildly different it's hard to find good canonicals.

  • @pnuts ok, Titles cleanup is done, but I still feel like it's a mess. But I do have a better idea. Let's discuss tomorrow in the new chat room I've created.
