Visited. "He visited the UK last year" is correct.
So, will they use that format in the UK, and "He was visited" in the USA?

"he was visited" is in the passive voice. "he visited" is in the active voice.

Perhaps you mean "he was visiting the UK last year". (This doesn't really work as a sentence in English on its own; but it would if you were saying something like "he was visiting the UK last year when the pandemic started".)
