Visa & Travel

Visa Requirements

You will only need permission (known as ‘entry clearance’ or ‘a visa’) to come to the UK for a business visit of up to six months if you are a visa national.

Currently, 108 countries require a visa to enter the UK. You can apply for a visa within three months of the intended date of travel at visa sections at UK embassies, high commissions and consulates, and through visa application centers around the world. The visa is valid for six months.

If you are a non-visa national, permission to come for up to six months is not needed.
