Immigration Law

immigration_small

The UK immigration process is complex and daunting. An applicant will often have to complete long forms, satisfy extensive requirements and present large amounts of personal and financial information in a prescribed format.

Strict deadlines must often be met, and a simple mistake can be fatal. Moreover, because the Government is committed to reducing drastically net migration before the next General Election, Home Office officials are now looking for any reason to reject an application, making it even more important that you get someone highly experienced at making visa applications to complete your application for you.

At Mergul Law, we have extensive experience of dealing with all types of visa applications, from entrepreneur visas to applications for British citizenship, and have a high application success rate. We attribute this to our meticulous preparation, lateral thinking and thorough apprehension of the immigration rules and requirements.

At the outset, we take detailed instructions from our clients and devise a plan of action based upon their unique circumstances and needs. We make sure that our clients are fully apprised of the application process and that our tactics and the material requirements are explained to them in plain English. We furnish them with checklists of the supporting documents they will need to gather and send them regular updates so that they know their applications are being progressed expeditiously. From the collation of initial documents to the submission of their applications, we make the immigration process as straightforward and stress-free as possible.
