If you are a non-EEA national and you wish to visit the UK, whether for a short period or long-term, you will need to apply for a UK visa. It is by no means legally required that you seek legal advice or guidance when making a UK visa application and you are free to do the entire process by yourself. However UK immigration law is complex, and the process can be stressful. Having a dedicated solicitor on hand to answer your questions and ensure your application and supporting documentation is correct can really help to lessen the load.
Immigration Advice Service lawyers have many years experience and have a fantastic reputation for our high quality services we deliver for our clients. Contact us today on 0330 433 1213 and start your immigration query today.
What services do your immigration solicitors in The Burroughs offer to UK businesses?
If you are a UK based business of any size, or a charity, IAS can offer immigration legal assistance. This is incredibly important if you wish to hire nationals from overseas for work in the UK. To do so, you must apply for your Sponsor Licence, pass the ‘genuine business test’ and potentially prepare for officials to visit your business site to meet all personnel who are involved with overseas recruitment.
Our specialist team can offer full guidance as well as application preparation for the entire process.
I wish to study in the UK. Can your solicitors in The Burroughs help?
The UK education facilities are recognised around the world. In order to come to the UK to study as a non-EEA national, you must first apply for a Student Visa.
This visa allows you to study in the UK for the course length, meaning you must have an offer already in place to study a course at a UK university, college or other education facility. You also have to show you have enough money to support yourself while you are in the UK.
There are many documents and eligibility requirements needed and an in-depth application form to begin the application process. IAS has a team of specialist lawyers that are well-versed in the Student Visa application process and would be very happy to advise you on your studying options.
Contact our team on 0330 433 1213 to ask any questions you may have.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Sponsor Licence is for UK businesses or any size (including charities) to hire non-EEA nationals for work in the UK. Having a sponsor licence shows you are a legitimate company that has proven you need workers from overseas. The process takes around three months and can be done online or via post. Specialist corporate law solicitors at IAS can help guide you and your company representatives through the process, to ensure you secure the workers that you require.
