Why should I choose IAS’ immigration lawyers?
At the Immigration Advice Service, all our lawyers are OISC (the Office of the Immigration Service Commissioner) accredited. This is the legal course and exam provided by the UK Government to ensure immigration advice is only provided by certain qualified companies and individuals.
If you are looking for immigration advice in Harrow, it is best practice to ensure your lawyer is OISC trained. At IAS, we guarantee your assigned immigration solicitor has the appropriate qualifications and training to deliver expert immigration advice.

If you live in London but need immigration advice or guidance, our office in Harrow has only the most qualified solicitors to help you.
To the untrained eye, UK immigration law can be extremely complex to navigate through. We advise that it is best not to apply if you haven’t sought any legal advice. After all, the Home Office does not issue refunds in the event that your visa application is refused and you could end up losing your legal right to reside in the UK altogether. Having a guiding hand from an IAS immigration lawyer will eliminate this risk and bring you peace of mind. Let us take the burden of your application from you.
If you have had a visa refusal, an IAS immigration lawyer will also be able to help you appeal the Home Office’s decision, even if we didn’t handle your case initially.
Our IAS lawyers in Harrow are able to advise you on:
- Spouse and Partner Visas
- British Citizenship
- Family Visas
- Work Visas
- Student Visas
- Investor Visas
- Visit Visas
If you book an Advice Session with us, your lawyer in Harrow will be able to guide you on the right visa type based on your circumstances.

If your business hopes to recruit talent from abroad, you will need to apply for and fill out an extensive Sponsor Licence application form. Obtaining a Sponsor Licence is crucial in order to legally hire overseas workers, even if you are a small business or charity.
Unlike a lot of the other visa categories, the Sponsor Licence application involves heavy paperwork and is heavily scrutinised by the UK Government.
To successfully gain a Sponsor Licence, you must:
- Ensure your business is eligible
- Ensure your staff have favourable immigration history (such as no criminal sanctions related to immigration such as failure to meet sponsorship duties)
- Choose the type of licence you require based on the ‘types’ of workers you need (for example, Tier 2 General Skilled Workers or Tier 5 Temporary Workers)
- Pick two senior members of your company responsible for managing the sponsorship
- Apply online
- Pay a lump fee, varying on the type of visa and size of your business
The Immigration Advice Service offers a custom-made Sponsorship Licence Application Package to help you navigate through the tricky parts of the sponsorship rules. In this package, your immigration lawyer in Harrow will verify and check every minor detail in your application for a sponsor licence. This includes checking your employee records, advising you on the Resident Labour Market Test, liaising with the Home Office on your behalf, prepping you for the compulsory Home Office visit and completing your application to the highest standard.
Absolutely, our immigration lawyers in Harrow can provide a helping hand throughout your Judicial Review.
If the Home Office has decided to refuse your application, they may decide not to grant you the right to appeal too. However, it may be possible to seek an Administrative Review or Judicial Review instead.
A Judicial Review is where you take your case to court, in which a judge reviews your circumstances and case. This review is different from an appeal because it challenges how the final decision was made rather than if the decision itself is right or wrong.
An Administrative Review is appropriate if you feel the decision on your application is unfair. You can seek an Administrative Review to ask the Home Office to reconsider your merits and the application again, especially if you had made a seemingly minor error (such as a tax discrepancy).
The nature of these types of appeals are incredibly time-consuming and can be a stressful time. It is best to seek an IAS lawyer to guide you through the stages and advise you every step of the way.
