Muddying the waters: Brexit and immigration

No one ever said immigration law was simple. In almost every country, the law changes constantly in response to conditions within the country and also in response to relationships with other countries around the globe.

The UK is one of those countries that everyone wants to come to: to live, to work for a time, to set up a business and to study. Nearly 3 million people a year apply for entry to the UK, and of those, about 400,000 are refused entry. That’s a pretty high percentage. Applying for a visa costs a fair bit too, and this fee is non-refundable.

Brexit is almost upon us here in the UK, and one area it is going to affect, without doubt, is who can and cannot gain entry to the country. If you are applying for visa during this time of turbulence in the UK, no matter where you are from, it makes sense to get the help of an immigration solicitor in London.

At Saracens Solicitors, we have been helping people get visas for many years and we have expert and constantly updated knowledge of immigration law and the application process in the UK. It seems like immigration law is under review more often than ever right now, so if you are applying for a visa, using our help as an immigration solicitor in London, can take some of the worry out of this long, drawn out, complex process.

Another important aspect of the visa application process is paying the right fees. These change every year, so it’s important to get it right. If you pay the wrong amount, your application will be refused. It will be money wasted and you will have to start all over again. As your immigration solicitor in London, we can help you get it right first time.

There are different kinds of visa for entry to the UK

The UK has various types of visa, geared to the purpose of your visit. There are tourist visas, visitor visas, student visas, work visas, visas for entrepreneurs; the list goes on.
