Hi,

I know this question has been posted several times in the site, but still wanted to confirm.
I am an Indian citizen, currently staying in the USA on an international student visa (F1 which is stamped on my passport) which is valid till 2017. I will be traveling to India from San Francisco in Dec 2013 and will travel back in Jan 2014 through British Airways via London. I need to change flights at Heathrow airport. Do I require the DATV (Direct Airside Transit Visa)?
I read the information on the UKBA website and I understand that I need not apply for DATV since I comply with the 'transit without visa concession' as I have a valid visa of USA, traveling by air and my onward flight departs within 24 hours. Please let me know if my understanding is correct. I was confused because in another place in the same site it mentions that Indian citizens need to have a DATV.

Also, if someone was in similar situation I would appreciate if you can share it.

Thanks,
Seema
