Transit Visit

Transit visa is granted to someone who does not visit the UK but merely pass through the UK to another country. Transit visa is of two types depending upon whether or not you will be going through the border control. If you go through the border control, you will be granted 48 hours transit visa and you must leave the UK after this period. But if you are merely changing flights in the UK, you will not be required to go through the border control. This is called Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV). But for both types of visa, you need to apply with proper documentation and by paying necessary fees.
