Question to the Home Office
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps his Department is able to take to support visa applications from Fairtrade producers invited to the UK by the Fairtrade Foundation and other Fairtrade organisations.
Answer (Caroline Nokes)
Attending meetings, conferences and seminars are all allowed under the Visitor Rules. UKVI has in place engagement teams who can work with event organisers ahead of events to support them through visa processes. Event organisers can approach UKVI directly, we also identify organisers through engagement with other government department and external Stakeholders.
