I'm studying on an F1 visa in the US and am travelling to India in December on a BA flight via London. I have a valid passport and a valid and current visa. Do I need to apply for a transit visa for my 3-hour stopover in London? I don't plan to step out of the airport.

Please help!

If you are flying to the US with a valid visa for there you get a waiver for needing a transit visa in the UK.
