    How can IAS’ immigration lawyers in Merton help me with a Tier 2 Work Visa application?

    IAS’ immigration solicitors have expansive knowledge and experience in Tier 2 Work Visa applications.

    We know what makes an exceptional application which includes accurate, consistent and adequate support documentation.

    While it can be tempting to complete a Tier 2 Work Visa application independently, our team of OISC-accredited immigration solicitors in Merton know which subtle mistakes to avoid and the importance of reviewing all documentation from an objective lens. What may seem adequate to you could in fact be insufficient and could eventually cost you a successful outcome.

    IAS offers an application package which allows those seeking practical legal guidance with any UK visa application, including a Tier 2 Work Visa.

    To successfully secure a Tier 2 Work Visa, you must score a minimum of 70 points as a part of the points-based system. Points are awarded based on a number of factors, including your job offer and Certificate of Sponsorship, your English language ability and the required maintenance funds.

    Once one of our immigration solicitors in Merton has assessed your eligibility for a Tier 2 Work Visa, they can begin preparing your application.

    We can then process and submit this application on your behalf, saving you a significant amount of time.

    To get started on your Tier 2 Work Visa application, call us on 0333 305 3612.
