Personal immigration

Moving to the UK can be a very complex and stressful process. Choosing the right visa alone is a challenging task that can have a serious impact on your future plans if you get it wrong. Moving to the UK with the wrong visa or overstaying once your visa has expired could result in deportation. Therefore, it is essential to get it right first time and plan ahead to ensure you can stay in the UK for as long as you need to.

Our UK visa solicitors can provide all the help you need. Whether you are actively making plans to move to the UK, you are already here, or you are just thinking about it, our aim is to make the experience as simple and straightforward as possible. We will:

  • Break down the process into manageable steps
  • Provide advice on exactly what you need to do to immigrate successfully
  • Handle all the legal aspects, such as liaising with the Home Office regarding your visa application.

We regularly advise individuals who want to:

  • Work in the UK, either temporarily or in the long term
  • Study
  • Research
  • Seek private medical treatment
  • Relocate their family to the UK
  • Go on a business trip
  • Visit for a holiday or to see family or friends
  • Get married in the UK

We can also help you extend a visa, apply for indefinite leave to remain, or obtain British citizenship.

Bail, detention and deportation

If you are facing issues, such as a refused application, detention by the Home Office or UK Border Agency, or the threat of deportation, we can assist you.

Asylum, refugee and humanitarian protection

We can help you if you want to stay in the UK because of problems in your home country and/or because it is not safe for you to stay in your home country. Our clients include children and victims of human trafficking or domestic violence. We can arrange an interpreter where needed so please get in touch to talk with one of our friendly lawyers.

How does the new UK immigration system work?

From 1 January 2021, a new points-based immigration will come into force, requiring all non-British or Irish citizens to apply for a visa before they can live and work in the UK. This includes EU, EEA and Swiss citizens who previously had freedom of movement before the UK left the European Union.

The new system aims to attract people who can contribute the most towards the UK economy, such as ‘skilled workers’. Under the new points-based system, to be eligible for some of the most common types of UK visa, you will need to achieve a certain number of points (e.g. for a Tier 1 (General)/Skilled Worker visa, you will need 70 points). Some other immigration requirements are also changing from 1 January 2021.

For detailed information on exactly what is changing and the new process for applying for a UK visa, read our in-depth article, New UK immigration system: what you need to know.
