We can advise on your immigration situation from pre-entry clearance, to remaining in the UK, settlement and to applying for British Citizenship and a British passport. Our service is both friendly and uniquely tailored to ensure that we understand exactly what you want. With more than ten years’ experience in immigration advice we have a proven and excellent success rate.

Every new immigration enquiry starts with a fixed fee consultation to ensure that we have your full immigration history and can provide you with the best available option for you. This consultation is £300 and stands alone for clients that then wish to progress their own applications. If we are instructed further, then the consultation fee is deducted from our advice costs on any resulting application work.

A consultation includes a one-hour meeting by Skype, Whatsapp, Facetime or over the phone. Written summary follow up advice is provided as part of the consultation fee.
