I am an Indian citizen and planning for a business trip to UK from where I plan to join my family for a vacation in Italy and come back to UK for business. What visas should I apply for? Business visa for UK but then from where do I get my Schengen visa to Italy?


On next Friday (24 April 2015), the UK Business Visitor visa will be abolished and will not exist after that date.

Instead you can apply for the new Visitor (general) visa. This visa permits the holder to engage in both tourism and business activities. To apply, you can create an account at Visa4UK.

You can apply for a Schengen visa in India at the Visa Facilitation Service.

  • Visa4UK is actually a foreign office thing? It sounds like a scam company that charges you double to just pass your paperwork on. Well done FCO... – CMaster Jun 16 '15 at 11:52
  • @CMaster, no, it's their site for on-line applications – Gayot Fow Jun 16 '15 at 13:03
