The practicalities of visa applications

Immigration Solicitor in London

Immigration is a big decision for most people. At Saracens Solicitors, we help to break the process down into manageable steps so that you can be sure that everything is covered. When we act as your immigration solicitor in London, we take care of the legal processes so you can deal with the personal considerations that accompany the visa process.


The first thing you will need to tackle is, inevitably, paperwork. We can help guide this process but, ultimately, all the information must come from you. This means filling out the appropriate forms and providing all required evidence. If you do not respond appropriately to requests for information, this can stall the process and end up costing you time and money.

At Saracens Solicitors we can ensure that you meet all the requirements of your application by giving you clear guidance and checking your application before it goes forward.


Understanding the potential costs of a visa application before you start goes a long way towards ensuring that you are not unpleasantly surprised at a later date. At Saracens Solicitors, we hold information on the latest fee structures and can give you a good idea of costs before you start. If your decision is refused, your fee is usually non-refundable. Appeals entail a further fee but, if your application is upheld, you can normally get this back.

We can also offer guidance as to our fees for acting as your immigration solicitor in London. Engaging professional assistance often helps to save time and money by ensuring an efficient and successful visa application process.

Moving your things

Once it becomes clear that you are likely to be able to move to the UK for a period of time, you will need to think about other practicalities, like moving your things. The guidelines about what you can and cannot being into the country and what may be subject to tax and duty change depending on where you are coming from.

Saracens Solicitors can continue to support your immigration process by offering you guidance on this process and ensuring that you meet your legal obligations when we act as your immigration solicitor in London.
