My UK business visa was obtained in October 2016 (for 2 years). I have to travel to the UK from July 28 to Aug 17, 2018 (within the 2-year period) on business (meetings, conference etc).

I am concerned that since I have not yet used my visa, the visa might be void (if memory serves, there used to be a 3-month or void). Is this a possibility? Is there anyway for me to check if the visa is in fact valid?

    Where did you get the information about a "3 month or void" rule? I've never heard of such a thing. – phoog Jun 21 '18 at 11:55
  • @phoog is there such a restriction for any other kind of entry to the UK? Maybe a misunderstanding started from that. – user16259 Jun 21 '18 at 16:56
  • @user16259 There may be, but I am unaware of it. In fact I do not know of such a restriction for any kind of visa anywhere. – phoog Jun 21 '18 at 17:10
  • @user1820548, is there any time restriction mentioned on the visa itself? – Willeke Jul 8 '18 at 12:00
