Each year Diamond hosts visitors and welcomes employees and visiting researchers and collaborators from many different countries. Many of these individuals will need a visa to enter the UK.
Generally speaking, if an individual is a citizen of a country that is not UK or Ireland, it is likely that he/she will require a visa to enter the UK. The exception to this is that EU citizens can visit the UK for up to 6 months without a visa. The type of visa needed will depend on that individual’s personal circumstances, the purpose of their visit and where they are applying from.

Please note that the Home Office change immigration rules and requirements regularly. While we aim to ensure that the information is kept up to date, there may be times when this is not the case. Please do not rely on this information alone. For the latest information, you should click here.
