Who is an OISC accredited lawyer?

By law, immigration advisers in the UK must be registered with OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner). This means that all the best immigration lawyers in Cardiff must be OISC regulated to be able to offer professional advice.

At IAS, all our immigration experts are accredited by OISC. Their areas of expertise cover several immigration issues, such as:

  • Claims for asylum;
  • Spouse Visas and Family Visas application;
  • British Citizenship and settlement status applications;
  • Immigration employment documents;
  • Deportation or removal.

Please note that it is a criminal offence in the UK for a person to provide immigration advise without being registered as an OISC professional. Only members of certain professional bodies may be allowed to provide legal advice without being authorised by the OISC.

How can I know if I need a visa to enter the UK?

Just like other states, the UK requires citizens of certain nationalities to obtain a visa before they can enter the country.

If you are a non-EEA national, you will need a visa to live, work, or study in the UK. In certain circumstances, you may be allowed to visit the country for leisure purpose for a short time, but you will not be able to engage in different activities.

If you are unsure if you need a visa to enter the UK, our immigration lawyers in Cardiff are happy to help. You can call us today to discuss your case and review your circumstances. We can advise on your best options to stay in the country and how to proceed with your application process.

Does IAS offer an Appeal Package?

Unfortunately, not every application is successful. Sometimes the Home Office may reject forms that contain incorrect information, or that do not include adequate supporting evidence.

If the Home Office has rejected your request, you have the right to appeal. The UKVI will send you a refusal letter detailing the reasons for this verdict, as well as further information on how to proceed.

If you decide to challenge the UKVI decision on your application, you can undertake an appeal yourself. However, it is always recommended to be represented by an expert.

IAS offers a wide range of experienced immigration lawyers in Cardiff. Our team has proven experience in dealing with several immigration cases, including refusals.

We offer an extensive Appeal Package that includes:

  • Discussing and reviewing the reason for your refusal;
  • Providing expert advice on the implication of appealing to the UKVI decision;
  • Completing and submitting the appeal forms;
  • Producing a comprehensive document bundle to evidence the merits of your appeal;
  • Complete representation at the full hearing before the tribunal;
  • Liaison with the Home Office;
  • Complete support until you receive your decision.
