Business Visitors

We make the complex simple

"Outstanding" - Legal 500

Entry to the UK for business purposes is governed by a complex set of immigration rules. We simplify and manage the process to neutralise risk and guarantee business compliance.

A visitor is a person who is coming to the UK, usually for up to six months, for a temporary purpose, for example as a tourist, to visit friends or family or to carry out a business activity.

Visitors cannot work or study in the UK unless this is allowed by the permitted activities that are set out in the Visitor Rules.

We work with businesses and individuals to navigate the complexities of entry to the UK for business purposes. Wherever you come from, and for whatever purpose, we will advise you on the best strategy for immigration compliance.

We will work with you to review planned activities in the UK to determine whether they are permissible under a short visit and whether an entry-clearance or work authorisation is required. We will guide you and take control of every aspect of the process to ensure smooth entry to the UK and peace of mind when meeting the authorities on arrival, enabling you to focus on the business in hand.
