    Allow Visitors

    Dear friends and Teachers,

    A. Her company doesn't allow visitors to visit her during working hours.

    - Instead of saying like this, could I say like this?

    "Her company doesn't allow her visitors during working hours."

    Thanks a million!

    A. Her company doesn't allow visitors to visit her during working hours.

    B Her company doesn't allow her visitors during working hours.

    I prefer A. B seems incomplete.
    Or you could say
    Her company does not allow visitors to visit staff during working hours.

    not a teacher

    Yes, you can say that. Or you could say:
    "Her company doesn't allow private visitors during working hours." This obviously includes "her".
