    I am planning to visit the UK for tourism purposes and would like guidance on how to obtain a tourist visa. Could you provide information on the step-by-step process, required documents, and any important considerations for applying for a UK tourist visa? Additionally, what is the typical processing time, and are there any specific eligibility criteria that applicants need to meet?
