Business Visitor Visa UK

A Business Visitor Visa is for people who work abroad but intend to visit the UK for a short time to do business on their own or their employer’s behalf. Business visitors includes those coming for short visits as:

The applicant must be genuinely seeking entry as a business visitor for a period not exceeding six months (or 12 months for an academic visitor) and they must leave the UK at the end of the visit. The person must also be able to financially maintain and accommodate themselves and any dependents without any benefit.

A business visitor should not receive their wages from a UK business, unless working for a multinational company which due to administration purposes handles payment of worldwide salaries from the UK. Reasonable expenses which cover the cost of travel and subsistence are permitted.

In order to qualify for extension of stay as a business visitor, the applicant must:

continue to meet all of the requirements as they did at the time of their application for entry clearance

have been last granted entry clearance, leave to enter or leave to remain as a business visitor

The applicant must not:

have already spent, or would not as a result of an extension of stay, spend more than six months in total in the UK as a business visitor, or 12 months if they are an academic visitor.

  • review rating 5  I used Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors to apply for my spouse visa and the case was dealt with by Mudassir Ali. Mudassir was very friendly and efficient and was certainly an expert in this field with his detailed knowledge and professionalism. The service was excellent from start to finish. The advice and requirements were made very clear to me and Mudassir was very thorough, spending a significant amount of time putting the case together and making sure nothing was missed. I was kept up to date on a regular basis and was successful with the visa being approved quickly and on the first attempt. I would like to thank Mudassir Ali and the staff at Whiterose Blackmans for all their hard work and the excellent service during the case. I would also highly recommend this firm to friends and family in the future. Excellent service and a very happy customer.
