At AWH Solicitors we provide a same-day visa and fast-track service that will help you get an answer much faster.

Applying with fast-track

AWH Solicitors are members of the UK Border Agency Public Enquiry Office. This enables us to fast-track applications to the Home Office and save you a lot of time.

After our solicitors present your immigration application you normally receive your decision within 24 hours.

Making an appeal after your visa was refused

Sometimes visa applications are refused, but that isn’t always the end of the process. In many cases, our solicitors can help you appeal this decision.

We can represent you at the immigration tribunal, and help you with complex judicial review claims. We have lots of experience advising and assisting people already in the UK who are facing issues with their visas, or even deportation.

Whatever your situation, we can provide you with the expert support that you need.

Finding out if you can appeal

If the decision you’ve received from the Home Office was not what you were hoping for, you may be able to challenge it.

It is not always possible for you to appeal decisions made by the Home Office, but your letter or notice of refusal should tell you your potential appeal rights. We can help you understand those rights and proceed in the best way.
