Potential problems with a visa application

Immigration Solicitor in London

Immigration law is complex and applying for a visa is often not a straightforward process. This is why you may need the assistance of an immigration solicitor in London like Saracens Solicitors. We are here to help you make the right choices and avoid the common pitfalls. We have a strong track record of successful applications. Our professional team of friendly legal professionals is on hand to give you the guidance you need whether you are planning a holiday in the UK or responding to more stressful and urgent circumstances.

Choosing the right visa

The first step to a successful application is to choose the right visa.

Most applications require the payment of a fee. If you choose the wrong visa and your application fails, you are not entitled to a refund of the fee.

There may be visas which suit your circumstances perfectly which you are not aware of and, without professional help from an immigration solicitor in London, like Saracens Solicitors, you may not find this out until it is too late.

Misfiling paperwork

There could be lots of paperwork that you need to submit with your visa application. If the supporting documentation is not up to the required standards then your application may be refused. Not only will you lose your fee but there are some applications that you are not allowed to make more than once so you could miss your chance altogether.

Missing deadlines

Any follow up requests for information or appeal will come with a deadline. This can be as short as 7 days. When we act as your immigration solicitor in London, we help you stay on top of deadlines and paperwork so that your application is not automatically rejected on the basis of a technicality.

Being refused

In the event that your application is refused, you may still have options. Visa decisions can be appealed on various grounds. Saracens Solicitors is up-to-date with the latest appeal processes and guidelines so we can help you make your case and give you a good chance of a successful appeal. If you are not eligible to appeal, we can advise you on any other options that are available. We work hard to explore every avenue with you.
