Simplified visa process to boost Chinese business relationships
17 Dec 2014
A new scheme, which aims to "dramatically" simplify the process of potential Chinese investors visiting the UK, could boost trade relations between China and the UK.
The Select Business Scheme UK (SBS UK) was devised by UK Visas & Immigration and is available to members of the China-Britain Business Council (CBBC), the British Chamber of Commerce in China (BCCC), the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and companies referred by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).
It aims to boost UK trade with China by making the process of applying for a visa simpler for representatives of Chinese businesses.
"Business relationships with China are increasingly sophisticated and this scheme will certainly help companies in the UK and China to cooperate more effectively."
Steven Phillips, Chief Executive, China Britain Business Council
