Consider the following suggestions for easy and fast UK Visa Qualification:

1.    Visa Application: Visit the UK Visa website  and fill up the Visa Application Form. Make sure that you fill up all the information correctly and in line with your Travel Plans.  The first thing the Clearance officer will do is comparing your application with your travel plans. Unlike US Visa, you won’t be facing any Interview, so it’s important to mention everything correctly.

2.    Credentials: UK Clearance Officer considers two main things in applicant- Funds for trip and a surety that the applicant will come back. The UK Visitors Visa enables you to stay in the UK for up to 6 months. The officer considers Duration, Funds for the same and reasons compelling him/her to return. To give you an example, if you are planning a trip for 2 months, funds in your account should be enough to entertain you for the same.  Similarly, you should have documents that assure your return after 2 months. If you have visited UK before, it’s a big plus point. Probability of approval increases.

3.    Documents: As discussed above about Credentials, documentation should support them.  Proof of Funds may include Bank Statements, Tax Returns, Pay Slips, etc.  don’t show any Bank Overdrafts as they are considered as Liabilities. Documents to assure return back may include School/College IDs, Employer Certificate, Leave Grant Letter from Employer, Sale/Title Deeds of Property, Certificate of Incorporation of own Firm etc. You can also include documents obtained from your travel agents confirming your bookings. These may include Hotel Details, Flight Details etc.
