Sound Mind Requirement - UK


For all visa’s into the United Kingdom, and especially those which are to become a British National, there is an abundance of information which needs to be collected in order for the UK Immigration Authorities to make a decision on where to approve or to deny your visa. A criteria which many people are unsure of and even unaware of is the Sound Mind Requirement - this is a very important part of the Immigration Authorities decision making and so you should understand fully what the heading means.

Being of Sound Mind in the extreme basics purely for visa purposes is decided on if you are able to make your own choices and decisions. This used to be called the Full Capacity Requirement but has recently been updated to stand in line with all which is politically correct and to cause limited offence, now the Sound Mind Requirement’. This is tested on how you are now, in present form. If you have had previous mental health issues this should be put forward to the United Kingdom's Immigration Authorities for consideration but is highly unlikely to have any bearing on the final outcome of your visa. The reason being that many people (one in three) face some kind of mental health problems in their lifetime, this can be minimal like mild depression or anxiety issues or it can be the more severe, schizophrenia, bipolar and other disorders. Providing that you have a doctor's written word that you are free from these issues today, your previous medical history should not come into it unless during your time of mental health issues you took part or were involved in violent crimes, drugs and or terrorism or anything which led to custodial sentencing. 

 As with all official documents it is of the essence that you are 100% honest throughout the entire application process. The documents you sign to say are correct are official legal documents of the United Kingdom and so being untruthful is a criminal offence and may lead to immediate deportation, a permanent exclusion or even a prison sentence. You will not get away with being untruthful, every aspect of your life is documented and accessible to officials or those with authority so if you try to hide anything it will be discovered. If you are the carer of someone who is not of sound mind and you are applying for a visa on their behalf we will need full evidence of all of their issues plus written documentation that by law you are the persons legal guardian.
