Applying for a visa in the UK can be a long and daunting process, whether it is your first application or you are more experienced in the process. Following Brexit, the ever-changing political environment can perplex your understanding of immigration laws, therefore seeking the help of an experienced immigration solicitor in London is highly recommended.
At Saracens Solicitors, we have years of experience in the UK Immigration process and we have helped many applicants obtain their visas successfully. No matter what your nationality is, if you are planning to settle and work in the UK and you want to apply for a visa with confidence, we can guide you through the process and act as your immigration solicitor in London.
How do I apply?
If you are an EU national, you do not need to apply for a visa to enter the UK. However, non-EU nationals need to apply for a visa, and here are the basic steps of the application process:
- Apply, make payment and book an appointment through the government website visa4uk.com;
- Provide all the information needed (including biometric data and supporting documents) at your appointment.
Your immigration solicitor in London will guide you through the application process and ensure that you pay the correct application fee. Application fees change every year and if you end up paying the wrong amount of money, then your application will be refused. We can also help you apply for a same day service via the Home Office.
What type of visa should I apply for?
The type of visa you will be applying for depends on the purpose of your trip to the UK and what you intend to do during your stay. If you are unsure about the type of visa you should go after, your immigration solicitor can help you.
Short stay tourist visas are different from student or business visas, and prohibit you from doing certain things during your stay in the UK. The total duration of your visit depends on the type of visa you have applied for.
