Business Visitor Visa Information

The business visitor category is part of the Visitors Visa rules. It is for people who specifically want to come to the UK to do business for a short time. The category not only includes academic visitors, visiting professors, overseas news media representatives; but also people such as film crews on location.

The activities you can undertake whilst in the UK on a visitors visa are defined by the UK Border Agency. The activities listed by the UK Border Agency are always subject to change.

Activities include attending meetings or conferences, arranging deals, signing trade agreements or contracts, attending site visits or tour groups; or even attending a one-off conference, etc.

In addition to meeting these rules, you will need to demonstrate that you meet the rules for a general visitor. You must also demonstrate that you can maintain and accommodate yourself without claiming any benefits; and that you intend to leave the UK at the end of your stay.

This visitor visa category is for people who wish to come to the UK initially to arrange their business affairs; before applying under one of the other categories, such as investors or entrepreneurs.
