With an office based in Buchanan Street right in the heart of Glasgow, we are able to offer our services to those who are in need of professional and friendly immigration advice in Glasgow and the surrounding areas. Many of our highly experienced advisers have practised immigration law as solicitors and are therefore trained to the same standard as immigration solicitors.

Why do I need an immigration solicitor?
An immigration solicitor or lawyer can offer invaluable legal insight and experience when making your application. Immigration lawyers are trained to know what the Home Office expect from any immigration, asylum or settlement application. This means that the possibility for error is minimised.
What’s more, having an immigration lawyer at hand when you make an application or appeal will allow you to put your mind at rest. Making any kind of application can be stressful and complicated, and having someone there who knows the ins and outs and can take charge of it for you can be really beneficial.
Why choose us?
At IAS, we are proud to host some of the best immigration lawyers Glasgow has to offer. Our lawyers are all highly experienced and qualified. This means they can assist you in the most professional way, offering you valuable expertise.
Our services begin by pairing you with a Glasgow immigration lawyer who is right for you. So, if you are looking for help with your British citizenship application you will be paired up with a lawyer with settlement and nationality application experience.
If you choose to proceed with an application with this lawyer, they will begin by helping your source and organise your supporting evidence. This can include them putting in a Subject Access Data Request to the relevant authorities, if this is necessary. They will then file your evidence into a comprehensive Evidence Portfolio. This is designed to allow Home Office officials to easily navigate through your application without missing any information in your case.
Along with this, your lawyer will also write a Letter of Representation. This letter is personalised and pleads the merits of your case. It includes legal insight, reference to case-law and legislation if relevant.
Your immigration lawyer will also complete your application to the highest possible standard, before submitting it to the Home Office/ UKVI. Once this has been done, they will continue to liaise with the Home Office until a decision has been reached on your application.

More on our bespoke immigration advice sessions.
Searching for good immigration lawyers, or even the best immigration lawyers in Glasgow can be difficult. It is sometimes difficult to know which lawyers are good and which are not.
However, there are certain things you can look out for if you are just beginning your journey in looking for a solicitor.
The key three things that everyone should look out for when trying to find the best immigration lawyer in Glasgow, are:
Experience is very important when selecting an immigration adviser. For example, you should always look for someone who has experience in your particular type of enquiry. This is important, as it means they will know exactly how to deal with your case and advise/assist you.
At IAS, our immigration lawyers are all specialists in their fields, with practical experience in making applications for all types of immigration, nationality, asylum, and corporate-related cases. Our Glasgow immigration lawyers have worked with clients in all types of scenarios. They have made applications for UK visas, helped employers to recruit international talent and supported people to settle in the UK permanently. Between them, our immigration lawyers (many of whom have previously practiced as immigration solicitors in Glasgow) have a combined experience of more than 40 years.
Qualifications are another thing to look out for when looking for a good immigration lawyer in Scotland. It’s always important to bear in mind that anyone who does not have the proper qualifications is not legally allowed to offer immigration advice. This is so that the sector can be properly regulated. The two types of people who can legally offer immigration advice are those who are trained immigration solicitors, who have passed the Bar; and those who are OISC accredited.
All our UK immigration lawyers, including those in Glasgow, are OISC accredited. This means they have an in-depth understanding of immigration, nationality and asylum law and can use this to guide their advice.
A proven track record of success is also something to look out for when searching for the best Glasgow immigration solicitors. Try and find examples of your lawyer’s past success to help you make your decision.
Our immigration lawyers have a very high success rate and have made countless successful applications for clients, in every immigration category. They are professional, experienced and knowledgeable and this comes through in their performance.
If you can’t make it to one of our immigration advice centres in Scotland, you can also visit us at any one of our office locations across the UK. Or, if you can’t make to us — if you are overseas or too busy — we also offer the same services over the phone or via Skype.
We are committed to shaping our services around whatever works for you. This means that, no matter how busy or far away you are, we can still help you find the best solution to your immigration issues, concerns, and needs.
