Hiiii I am Utsab Basu, from Kolkata, India. I am an international student studying in Canada. I am planing to visit India on this April 2018. The tickets I have seen is all via London ( LHR ) and it also have long time layovers. As far as I know being an Indian and having study visa for Canada, we don't need to apply for a transit visa . But as its having a long layover, can I get a short time visa for like one day, so that I can see the beautiful London during my layover. I cannot apply visa from where I live as there is no biometric clinic for UK visa applicants. Is there a way I can apply it from the ( LHR ) airport, or apply online but do the biometric test on airport and get the transit visa overthere? My brother got the visa from airport as he was going back to India too. But I just want to make sure about it and rules and every thing.
Hope to get an answer from you very soon.
Thanks a lot
