We were selected to take part in the BBC documentary Who Should Get to Stay in the UK? We were the only small company amongst the “big guys”, yet our case went the smoothest!
1st 4Immigration Ltd is a specialist UK visa and immigration law company. We help customers worldwide to join family, come to work, settle in the UK. Well-respected by clients and colleagues for our in-depth technical knowledge of UK Immigration Rules and “details”, which can make or break your case.
Accredited at the highest OISC Level 3. We have been in business for over 12 years! Our OISC reference is F200800152, in which 2008 stands for the year of accreditation. We have been registered as a provider of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for immigration professionals since 2012.
We make the most of technology in the ‘new normal’: WhatsApp, Zoom, Skype, email and phone. We process applications and documents electronically via email, Dropbox and similar, or you can still post them to our London office. The UK Government now considers all applications electronically. We are a “mid-level fee” small company with “high-level expertise”. We always respond on the same business day and process visa applications as fast as possible. We are based in the City of London, at Tower 42, pictured here. It was also a location in a Sherlock TV series.
Although we are located in London, we serve customers wishing to come to the UK from anywhere in the world, all nationalities and occupations. From our London office we have helped people to join family or relocate to the UK for work from Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South Africa, USA, South America, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, China, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Iran, Dubai and UAE, Lebanon, Egypt and North Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, most African countries and many other places. We make a good use of WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom, Dropbox and emails – as well as our excellent business practices, perfected over the past 10+ years!
Within the UK, we welcome customers and businesses from all regions. Applications to remain or settle in the UK are most common, as well as to bring a husband, wife or partner to the UK. On the work/business visas side, the most popular services are Tier 2 Sponsorship guidance for employers, advice for workers and entrepreneurs. We work using WhatsApp, Zoom, Skype, emails, Dropbox.
1st 4Immigration team is very diverse! Each one of us has been through UK immigration process. We started this company after the founders, Natalia and Wayne Andrews, went through their own immigration journey in 2003. Natalia came to the UK on a Fiancee visa to marry Wayne. In due course she acquired her Spouse visa and Indefinite Leave to Remain. She has had dual nationality since 2007 and has unrivalled expertise on this popular subject. Natalia particularly enjoys working on Financial Requirement £18,600 for spouses and partners of UK citizens, combining her legal knowledge with a strong grasp of mathematics (yes, you really need that!). The more complex situation the better: multiple sources of income, savings, self-employment – we have done it all!
We are Immigration Entrepreneurs, hence, UK business and work visas have been our other main line of work during the past 12 years. We developed our own in-house Business Plan writing service with a former banker on our team. We focus on UK work visas under the new Points-Based Immigration System from December 2020, which brings great opportunities for the UK employers and for skilled workers from all over the world!
Our lawyers advise on the UK Immigration Rules, help with visas to enter and remain in the UK and with British Citizenship. We also provide training to immigration advisers and solicitors, and are accredited for CPD. If you choose to apply for a visa through us, you will benefit from our wealth of knowledge!
Under our sister brand, Multi Travel Visas, we have been helping with foreign travel visas for the past 15 years: Schengen, Indian, Chinese, Russian visas and many others.
