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.

  • 5 star review  I Applied for my wife's entry clearance visa in January 2020 using the priority service, hoping we’d get a decision in 4 weeks. Our case was handled by madasser. He is very knowledgeable and helped us throughout the application process. Unfortunately Due to covid-19 our case was delayed. It was an agonising 6 month wait! During the 6 months i was updated Whenever possible by Madasser. Then thankfully on 24/07/2020 my wife got her visa😊. Thank you Madasser for your help you are highly recommend.
