Business travellers to receive new premium visa services

In a further move to attract business highfliers to work and invest in the UK, the Government has announced that it intends to improve upon the current visa system.

The plans include the launch of the GREAT club, a service which aims to provide top flight business executives with individually tailored support from UK Visas and Immigration.

The club will be launched in January 2014 on a trial basis, for one year, and will target approximately 100 leading business people, each of whom will be allotted a dedicated “account manager” who will steer them through the process. The account manager will also be able to arrange visa services tailored to each individual’s needs at no extra cost during the pilot.

Further improvements planned to the current visa system include:

  • Expanding the priority (three to five day) visa service from 67 countries to over 90 countries by spring 2014.
  • Increasing the scope of the same day visa service, currently available in India and soon to be operational in China, to other countries by the end of next year.
