Advice sessions

As a part of our services we offer advice sessions, which can be at our office in The City (Monument area in central London) or over email. Email advice is becoming very popular because it is available to anyone anywhere in the world, plus answers are written and you can refer to them later without a fear of forgetting the advice given. You can also show it to your partner or to your employer.

Our advice sessions are available for migrants as well as for our colleagues immigration advisers and solicitors.

EMAIL ADVICE: We promise to provide answers to your queries by the end of the next working day after receipt of advice fee. Advice fee will be counted towards our service fee if you proceed with an application through us later, so in the end you will be paying no more than our service fee. 

FACE-TO-FACE ADVICE: at our office near Monument station in the City of London. Advice fee will be counted towards our service fee if you proceed with an application through us later.

Examples on the issues we can advise during the session:

  • How you and your British spouse/partner can meet the Financial Requirement, particularly if you are both returning to the UK, having lived abroad.
  • We have extensive experience in working with various sources of income, including combinations of income: employment and savings, pension and savings, cash savings and investments, property rental income including from several properties or combined with another sources of income.
  • Combinations of income from both partners (or advising that only one partner's income may be sufficient, as the case may be).
  • When you have a Spouse/Partner visa, do you have to spend all your time in the UK?
  • Can a family member of a UK citizen apply under the Surinder Singh route under the European law? This route is very attractive and popular (and much cheaper than under the UK law), however, there are very specific requirements to meet.
  • How can an EU/EEA citizen, or a family member, apply for British Citizenship without applying for permanent residency first?
  • Do you pass the points test?
  • In case of a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa, what is a Genuine Entrepreneur Test and what questions are asked at the visa interviews? We are immigration entrepreneurs with 10 years of experience in this business, so we know both immigration law and entrepreneurship.
  • We have successfully dealt with the Entrepreneur applications for years and have experience of case scenarios, such as when the funds of £200,000 are provided by the third party sponsor (including a family member), when the funds are held abroad or when a client has a combination of such factors. We can answer specific questions on the rules about these very important points, which are the main reasons for refusals in this category (this category has a very high rate of refusals when the applicants apply without a representative and we would strongly recommend to use our professional services to get it right, as we deal with such applications on the day-to-day basis).
  • What if you changed your name, do you need to change your visa?
  • How can you qualify for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR, permanent residency), which visas can be combined and which can't be?
  • Can you leave the UK after you get an ILR and when it can become invalid?
  • What your employer has to do if they want to sponsor you under the Tier 2 category.
  • What if you want to change your employer?
  • Planning ILR applications for Tier 1 General migrants before April 2018.
  • Absences from the UK for ILR, are they within the limit?
  • What to do if you have a criminal conviction or a driving offence? How does it affect your ILR and Citizenship application (there are different requirements).
  • Which English tests are accepted and can you use a certificate from the test which has been disallowed since your last visa?
  • And many other issues!

Please kindly note that advice session covers questions about the visa Rules and eligibility. It does not include checking/looking at the documents or completing the forms, which is our application service and we count advice fee towards it.
