Business Visit

You will need to apply for a visa if you would like to come to the UK on a business trip.

A Business Visitor visa allows you to visit the UK for business and work-related reasons for a maximum continuous period of 6 months.

To qualify you must:

  • Be a genuine visitor
  • Intend to leave once you have carried out your permitted activities for your job
  • Not make the UK your home by visiting regularly
  • Have enough money to support yourself during your visit
  • Not receive payment for any extra activities carried out in the UK unless it is a “permitted paid engagement”
  • Not engage in prohibited activities, such as setting up a business in the UK or charging members of the public for services or goods received
  • Not intend to take on any other work in the UK, outside of what you’ve travelled for

You may engage in permitted business activities such as:

  • Attend meetings, conferences, seminars, interviews
  • Negotiate and sign deals and contracts
  • Attend, trade fairs for promotional purposes only
