Increase of Business Visas From India to UK

There is a 12 per cent increase of business visas from India to the UK for the last 12 months.

This rise is for the period October 2013 – September 2014.

Bharat Joshi, a Deputy High Commissioner, said: “Ninety-one per cent of applications seeking visas are approved and the rest are not, for various reasons, including lack of requisite documentation.”

There’s still a small number of ‘fraud’ visa applications but such applicants should know they might get a 10-year ban to go to the UK.

15.6 billion Pounds have been generated from the UK-India trade, including goods and services and it’s expected there will be a ‘good growth’ over and above these figures in the coming year.

Joshi also said that the scholarships provided by UK based universities for Indian students has risen by 50% and reached an unprecedented amount of 1.5 million pounds for the year 2014/2015 compared to the 2013/2014 period. These scholarships are used by under and postgraduate students looking for courses in the UK.

He announced that more joint ventures between British and Indian companies would be a good thing for both countries.
