        How much immigration services cost?

        In most instances, we operate on a Fixed Fee basis for working on your case. This means that we will agree our fees with you before we start the case and they will not change. Please note that our quoted prices are only for our professional services fees. Our prices do not include any payments that need to be made by you to a third party such as the Home Office, Court Service, UK Visa and Citizenship Application Service (UKCAS), experts or interpreters if required.

        In some circumstances, the fees may be lower or higher than the prices listed below depending on the nature/complexity of the matter, whether the applicant has been refused previously and the anticipated amount of time involved. Should an uplift be needed, that will be agreed before the work is undertaken and the reason/s for it explained.

        All professional fees include time for preparation and submission of immigration applications, submissions and appeals. The fees include: remote and in-person client meetings, consideration of documents, the taking of instructions and providing advice on the options available, law & procedure, documentary requirement, likely timescales, corresponding with other parties/experts/the Home Office/courts, keeping you updated and preparing and submitting the application/submissions/appeal as appropriate.

        Our fees also cover alerting you to any changes in the law which may have an impact on your circumstances during the course of your matter. Should urgent and/or “out of hours” work need to be undertaken, an uplift may be applied which we would agree with you.

        Home Office Fees

        We are committed to providing you with a transparent breakdown of fees associated with your immigration application. Alongside our professional fees for legal services, there are Home Office fees related to immigration applications. These fees cover the government’s processing and administrative costs in managing immigration matters. Our goal is to offer you clear and comprehensive information about the overall costs of your immigration process. If you have any questions or need further clarification about the fee breakdown, our dedicated team is here to assist.

        Please be aware that Home Office fees are subject to potential changes by the government, and immigration policies, along with associated fees, may be updated periodically. For the latest information on Home Office fees and recent updates, we recommend checking the official government website or reaching out to our office.

        In July 2023, the Government implemented changes to immigration fees, impacting various visa types. On October 4, specific visa fees saw increases: work and visit visas by 15%, family visas, settlement, and citizenship fees by 20%, and student visas by a significant 35%.

        Immigration in the UK

        Let’s take a brief journey through the story of immigration in the UK. After World War II, people from Commonwealth countries came to the UK, bringing new cultures, perspectives, and energies that shaped the social landscape. At the time, Britain was grappling with the aftermath of war, seeking skilled and dedicated workers to contribute to the restoration of the post-war economy. Now, with Brexit, things are changing again.

        Brexit officially took place on January 31, 2020, and its impact on immigration policies has been substantial. The decision for the UK to exit the European Union has led to a transition to a points-based system, placing emphasis on skills and contributions to the UK. Recent statistics indicate fluctuations in the UK’s net migration, influenced by various factors, including Brexit-related policies. This shift in immigration dynamics has sparked debates about its impact on the economy and job market.

        The latest immigration regulations don’t impact EU citizens and their families already residing in the UK before the end of free movement on December 31, 2020. These individuals needed to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) to secure either pre-settled or settled status. Settled status, a form of permanent residence, is a prerequisite for UK citizenship. Pre-settled status is for those in the UK for less than 5 years, and they can later apply for settled status after accumulating the required residence time. While pre-settled status initially had a 5-year expiry, a 2022 court decision removed this limitation. EU citizens living in the UK by December 31, 2020, had until June 30, 2021, to apply to the EUSS. Newly arriving EU citizens now must obtain a visa in one of three main categories: work, family, or study. Family joining income thresholds and changes in tuition fees for EU students post-free movement are part of the evolving post-Brexit immigration landscape.

        Nowadays, individuals seeking employment in the UK must navigate a visa system categorised into work, family, or study. For businesses, this means adapting to a points-based system emphasising skills and contributions to the UK. Employers looking to hire skilled workers from outside the UK now need to follow new procedures and ensure their workforce complies with the revised immigration policies. Navigating these changes can be complex, requiring a thorough understanding of the updated regulations to ensure seamless business operations. It’s crucial for companies to stay informed and work closely with immigration experts to navigate the process of business immigration in the post-Brexit era.
