Visit or Transfer

TRANSFER PLACES ARE NOW AVAILABLE  - There will be a single facility to transfer to called 'Transfer to the United Kingdom', please choose this and complete the application to proceed.  You will not be able to choose the specific facility that your initial ratification takes place on. 

All applications will be processed each Sunday.

This page is ONLY for members that wish to transfer to or visit the United Kingdom.  If you wish to transfer or visit another region/division, you should apply directly to the team at the relevant region/division you wish to go to.

VATSIM UK welcomes controllers from other divisions who wish to control our diverse range of airfields and sectors. You only need to read this page if you are a home controller within a division that is not the UK, and want either to transfer to the United Kingdom as a controller, or visit the United Kingdom as either a controller/pilot.

All Transfering/Visiting controllers are subject to the global VATSIM Transfer & Visiting Controller Policy.
