Baku. Lachin Sultanova – APA. Tough new rules to safeguard the visitor route into the UK from abuse and keep Britain an attractive place to do business were published by the Government on 16 October. British Embassy in Azerbaijan told APA that under strict new rules those wishing to come to the UK on business for up to six months must apply for a dedicated new business visa and prove they will be attending meetings or conferences; arranging deals, negotiating or signing trade agreement or contracts; undertaking fact-finding missions, checking details or goods; and conducting site visits and promotional activities. The Statement of Intent sets out in more detail how the new business visa will work.
The Home Office set out further detail on two new visitor routes for sportspeople and entertainers, recognising the important contribution these individuals make to British cultural life. These new routes mean that an historical concession which allowed sportspeople and entertainers to come here for a short time without a work permit to take part in certain events will be retained.
