Visa requirements

Most visitors coming to the UK from overseas will now require a visa. If you're traveling from abroad your ticket alone may not grant you access to the show. Please go to gov.uk/check-uk-visa or click here to see whether you require a visa letter of invitation. 

If you do require a visa, please email the following details to info@thefranchiseshow.co.uk:

  • Your full name 
  • Your date of birth (DD/MM/YYYY)
  • Your passport number
  • Issue date of your passport (DD/MM/YY)
  • Expiry date of your passport(DD/MM/YY)
  • Place of birth
  • Address of the embassy/consulate to which you will make your application 

Once this information is received we shall produce a letter of invitation which can be presented to the embassy. Will will email a PDF of this directly to you (using the email address given on your registration form or unless specified otherwise). 

PLEASE NOTE: A print out of the PDF will be accepted by the embassy/consulate so we therefore do not post out copies to you.
