If, as it would appear in the question, your husband is in possession of a UK visa, or has the Right to Abode in the UK, then he should not need a separate visa in order to travel to Lanzarote in Spain.

  • What is a visa?

A visa is a travel document or symbol. A visa states that a person is allowed to travel to and from a specific country, or to stay in that country for a certain amount of time. For example, if you have ever been abroad (i.e. To another country) and been through passport control as a result, you probably had your passport stamped, on one of the pages towards the back. This stamp is a visa.

Visas can take other forms, however. In some cases (for example, in immigration), visas may take the form of official documents or papers that must be kept safe by the person they belong to. These documents can be quite long, and can contain a great deal of personal information. This is why the physical documents are required in cases more complicated than simply going on holiday - the stamps which are put onto your passport do not contain the right information.

There are lots of different types of visa. These include:

  • A travelling visa

This is required when you want to enter or leave a country (usually for the purpose of a holiday), and generally takes the form of a stamp in your passport.

  • A business visa

A business visa is required by a person who is entering a country for the purpose of doing business. A business visa must be applied for before you arrive at your destination.

  • An immigration visa

An immigration visa allows a person to live in a specific country for a set amount of time. However, the immigration visa is usually one of many documents that are required when you want to move to another country permanently.
