  • providing you advice about the requirements of the Immigration Rules and whether you meet the criteria.

  • reviewing your supporting documents;

  • preparing your online application and submitting it on your behalf;

  • Attendance at a Home Office interview (at a further fixed fee to be agreed);

  • giving you advice about the outcome of the application and any further steps you need to take.

 

Disbursements

 

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa fees. In the context of business immigration, disbursements may include:

  • Interpreters and translators fees are usually confirmed in advance.

  • Independent expert reports e.g. medical experts. These are not required in many cases: we will let you know as soon as possible if we consider an expert report is necessary.

  • If there is an interview and we do attend with you, there will be additional disbursements in respect of our mileage/travel expenses.

 

The costs quoted here do not include:

  • any Home Office fees for making the application. You will pay this to the Home Office directly as part of the application process.

  • where the Home Office refuse your application, advice and assistance in relation to any appeal

 

How long will my application take?

We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. Normally they process the applications between 3 to 6 months and in certain circumstances they have taken longer. Please refer to their website.

We will normally be able to submit the above types of the applications within 2-6 weeks of you instructing us, but we will let you know at the earliest opportunity if it is likely to take longer than this.

Please note the anticipated number of hours and fees are an estimate based on the facts above. All applications are likely to vary and of course, we can give you a more accurate estimate once we have more information about your specific case.
