Business Visitors

What kind of business activities can staff engage in as visitors to the UK?

Getting the answer to this question wrong could lead to your employee being refused entry to the UK, detained, sent home and even to being banned from the UK for up to 10 years!

We can help you avoid the consequences of falling foul of the visitor requirements. A couple of different visas are available to visitors seeking to undertake certain business activities in the UK.

We can assess whether the visitor category is appropriate. We can advise on documentation to support particular instances of short business travel or provide a lifeline of support to facilitate smooth entry at the border. We would also be happy to help your organisation develop policies for short business trips to the UK.

Our team is international and includes English, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, French, Spanish and Armenian speaking members.
