I'm going to apply for UK standard visitor visa with an business invitation. The purpose of visit is Business related. What i can see with UK standard visitor visa i can do lots of activities normal tourism, business meetings ,conference family visit many more all comes under ( C Type Visit )

My question is If I applied C type visa for business purposes with invitation can i travel first time for General tourism purposes? Or it has to be same that I applied to embassy? Do UK immigration officer will know what documents I submitted to embassy? Thanks

    The Immigration Officer will know what the stated purpose of your trip is. Plans do change, but if you apply saying that your trip is mainly for business and then turn up at the border for a first-time use of your visa with a completely different purpose, you may risk being refused entry. – Traveller Nov 29 '20 at 23:25
