                This will have to be a paid consultation since a lot of detailed information will be required.

                      Morning,

                      The forum is, indeed, free, however, lawyers do charge for one-to-one legal advice, which would be completely off the forum. As you can see above, we've tried tagging a number of our lawyers to see if they could comment on this. Unfortunately, visit visas are a bit outside the scope of this forum, which is mainly intended for EU Settlement and nationality applications, however, I tried to see if one of our lawyers could give you a quick answer here without the need for a consultation, but it looks like it was not possible.

                      Furthermore, now India has been placed in the red list for travel to the UK, it will be even harder to obtain a visit visa, and even if it was granted, arrivals from red list countries would need to quarantine in a hotel at a cost of around £1,700! So you can see how this probably wouldn't be a viable option for a charity. Personally, I don't agree with this requirement, particularly the co$t, but then I don't make the rules, the government does, so you need to be aware of all this.

                      I'm not sure what the purpose of this visit is, but it may be an idea to postpone it until the hype surrounding the Indian variant dies down, as was the case with all the other variant hysteria we saw earlier, for example, Portugal was put on the red list, now it's green...

                          Hello again,

                          As it looks like you have time to run through this, we have a number of lawyers on board who may be able to help, you may wish to contact them mentioning that this is a charity, etc. as you say above and see what they say. Although it is customary for lawyers to charge for consultations (that's how they put food on the table), they may, on occasion, agree to work pro-bono where required. You will find their details here: Lawyers

                              Hello again,

                              This type of visa application is not your ordinary, everyday tourist/business/family visa application, it's a little niche and would require careful consideration, hence the need for a private consultation. Do bear in mind that, when a visit visa is refused, it can be extremely difficult to successfully apply for another one, so it does pay to make the application with proper legal advice to get it right first time!
