Commenting ahead of the expansion of the Super Priority Visa Service on Wednesday 1 April, John Longworth, Director General of the British Chamber of Commerce said:

“Businesses have been crying out for faster visa processing times so that international investors can visit the UK easily and without lengthy delays. The expansion of the Super Priority Visa Service is a step in the right direction, and will help firms connect and trade with markets around the world.

“Our Business Manifesto calls for substantial improvement to the visa processing service to support companies’ investment opportunities. The next government must go even further and make fast-track business visas available in all countries around the world – demonstrating that Britain really is open for business.”
