10 Easy Tips to help you with a UK immigration application

14 December 2009
  1. Read and read again the immigration requirements specific to your own category. You have selected your immigration category and even established through the UK Border Agency (UKBA) points based calculator that you are able to claim enough points to qualify, well done! However, make sure that you identify the specific requirements by checking with the UK Border Agency
  2. Do not cut corners. If in doubt, always assume that the UKBA or the British Embassy will not exercise their discretion in your favour. Most of the requirements are mandatory and you will need to show that you do meet these by providing the required evidence. Be particularly careful when it comes to the maintenance requirement!
  3. Prepare the application form with accuracy. Reduce the chances of a refusal by carefully completing the application form, make sure that you have filled-in all relevant sections, answer truthfully all the questions (especially in case of a prior refusal), sign and date the application form. We can for you!
  4. Evidence. All documents unless specified need to be original. Your application might be refused on the basis that you have only provided copies or not all the required evidence.
  5. Cover letter. Always prepare a cover letter to accompany the application bundle explaining your immigration history, how you meet the different points and listing all the documents.
  6. Payment. This might be an obvious tip, however make sure that you have paid the correct fee and if you have decided to pay by credit card, alert your bank of the impending transaction or in the alternative pay by postal orders or banker draft. An invalid application can lead to become an over-stayer.
  7. Post using special recorded delivery. This might again be self explanatory, but it’s better to send your bundle by recorded delivery that dealing with the headache and repercussion of a lost passport or important documents.
  8. Always check your visa expiry date! Double check the expiry date of your visa. If you were to make an application after the expiry of your leave, you might lose your right of appeal!
  9. Spread the word! Share this information with others as it might help them too!
  10. Good luck!!
