Work in the UK

We can help you apply for a tier 2 visa, a temporary work visa or an intra-company transfer visa.

If you are a skilled worker looking to come to the UK for a longer period, you are probably looking at applying for a Tier 2 visa. A Tier 2 visa will allow you to enter the UK on a long-term basis to fill a skilled job vacancy, in IT, accountancy, teaching, or healthcare. After five years you may then also be allowed to apply for permanent settlement.

Our expert immigration solicitors are currently holding a 100 per cent success rate for points-based visa applications such as the Tier 2 visa.

Fast-track your application

It generally takes a long time getting your visa application ready, and once it’s sent in, the Home Office can take months before answering you to let you know if you were successful or not.

You may not have that kind of time, or you simply rather not wait. That is why we provide a fast-track service that will help you get answers sooner rather than later.

We can help fast-track your visa application in multiple ways, depending on the type of visa you are applying for and what your personal circumstances are.
