What Does an Immigration Lawyer Do?

An immigration lawyer is a person representing a company or individual on immigration issues and possesses profound legal knowledge to address issues concerning human rights, social welfare, mental health, or employment.
Ascentim Legal Solicitors are highly experienced and trained to assist their clients with visa or immigration applications, simultaneously ensuring that you get the right visa for your needs.

Why Opt for Business Visit Visa?

If you are looking to visit the UK for business-related activities, you must hold a business visitor visa. This visa is now categorised as a Standard Visitor Visa, which can be used by self-employed people who work for an overseas employer.

Because of the simpler application procedure, this visa is preferred by business travellers. Unlike the innovator visa and skilled work visa, this visa permits business visitors to stay in the UK for a maximum of 12 months. However, border officials may refuse admission into the UK if a holder cannot demonstrate the requisite visa conditions.

This possibility can be avoided via legal advice before travelling. Our immigration lawyers are equipped with all the relevant knowledge to guide you through each step of the application process, assuring a seamless visa process.

What are the Necessary Requirements for UK Business Visa?

Several different eligibility criteria must be met to be eligible for this visa. These include:

  • Explaining and showing proof of what activities you will participate in whilst staying in the UK; the law must permit all activities.
  • Demonstrating that you will leave the UK instantly, either once your visa expires or within the given timeframe of the visa.
  • Clearly showing that you can financially support yourself during your stay.
  • Proof that you have the financial means to continue your journey.

What Activities are Allowed and Prohibited under Business Visitor Visa Terms?

You are permitted to undertake business activities such as:

  • Attend conferences, meetings, seminars and interviews.
  • Negotiating and signing deals.
  • Attending trade affairs.
  • Performing site visits and inspections.

Prohibited activities include:

  • Joining other work or doing an internship.
  • Taking on full-time work.
  • Selling goods or services to other people/public.
