Our Fees (Immigration)

How We Can Help You

The work will involve:

  • discussing your circumstances in detail and confirming whether this is the most appropriate application for you to make and what other options may be available to you;

  • giving you advice about the requirements of the Immigration Rules and whether you meet the criteria.

  • if you do not fulfil certain criteria, whether this can be overcome and how, which on average takes about 3 to 7 hours;

  • considering the supporting evidence you have provided, which we anticipate will take X to 2 to 20 hours*;

  • where necessary, helping you obtain further evidence (such as medical records and bank statements), including taking statements of any witnesses;

  • preparing your application and submitting it on your behalf, which we anticipate will take 2 to 18 hours;

  • Attendance at a Home Office interview: if the Home Office ask you to attend an interview, we will give you clear advice (and discuss the possibility of us attending with you) at the appropriate time. This could be between 6 and 18 hours of work.

  • giving you advice about the outcome of the application and any further steps you need to take.

*the amount of hours depends on the number of documents, whether they need to be translated, whether anything is missing and how long it will take to obtain the missing documents. Disbursements (not included in costs set out above):

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa fees. We may handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process. Interpreters fees are between £20 – £100 per hour. Some applications will normally require between 3 – 10 hours with an interpreter, depending on the complexity of your case. Independent expert reports e.g. medical experts. These are not required in many cases: we will let you know as soon as possible if we consider an expert report is necessary. If there is an interview and we do attend with you, there will be additional disbursements in respect of our mileage/travel expenses.


The costs quoted here do not include:

Any Home Office fees for making the application. You will pay this to the Home Office directly as part of the application process.

  • Interpreters fees

  • Independent expert reports

  • Attendance at a Home Office interview

Where the Home Office refuse your application, advice and assistance in relation to any appeal
Please note, our fees do not attract VAT, however, VAT may be payable on disbursements such as representatives fees/expert fees. VAT is charged at the rate of 20%.


How Long Will My Application Take?

We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. Read the current processing times on the Home Office website. We will normally be able to submit this type of application within 1 – 3 weeks of you instructing us, but we will let you know at the earliest opportunity if it is likely to take longer than this. Please note the anticipated number of hours and fees are an estimate based on the facts above. All applications are likely to vary and of course, we can give you a more accurate estimate once we have more information about your specific case.
