People requiring a visa to come to the UK for business should apply early, due to delays at the UK Visas and Immigration (an executive agency of the Home Office).
UKVI says it is prioritising applications under the Ukraine Family Scheme. Applications for study, work and family visas may take longer to process as a result, it says. ‘Priority’ and ‘super priority’ visa services have been suspended “temporarily”.
Standard visitor visas are currently taking an average of six weeks to process, UKVI says. Firms have been used to getting their visas in three weeks.
