Will my UK visa application be successful?

Every case is different, and there is no guaranteed success rate. In the majority of cases where someone has been refused entry clearance or leave to remain by UKVI it can be possible to negotiate a better outcome after they have left the country and returned to their home country. It is therefore important that you consult with an experienced immigration solicitor before your try and resolve your immigration matter yourself.

What documents does UKVI require?

When submitting any application or document to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), you must it in a clear and easy to read font – letters must be upper case. You must ensure that documents are complete and accurate, with all pages included even if they appear blank. Any information you provide should be consistent with any other information given to UKVI by or on your behalf.

UKVI requires evidence of identity, nationality, entitlement to live in the United Kingdom, and also evidence of how you intend to support yourself while in the UK. It is important that all documents submitted include a contact name and telephone number for ease of identification should there be any issues with your application. You may find it helpful to use a passport-sized photograph when submitting your applications as often photographs do not meet the required specifications from UKVI. We recommend using photos that clearly show your face in color head and shoulders, no larger than 35mm x 45mm in size.

How long will it take for me to get my UK visa?

The time taken to process your application depends on your circumstances and the type of visa you are applying for. We cannot give any indication of when you will be able to enter or live in the UK until after we have received all required documentation from you (and where relevant the supporting documentation required under the specific application category) along with confirmation of payment. Once this has been done, we can proceed with preparing and lodging your application. Generally speaking, if there are issues that require further clarification or clarification documents then it may take longer before an application is processed. If UKVI need additional evidence to process your application they will contact you directly by letter.

I’m under 18. Can I do my UK visa myself?

Some people under the age of 18 are eligible to apply for their own UK visa using the standard criteria and permitted evidence, but this is unusual. You must be able to demonstrate that you meet all of the required criteria for the UK visa application in order to pass the ‘balance of family test’. This means it is usually better practice for a parent or guardian with Parental Responsibility (PR) to make any applications on behalf of themselves and any children who seek leave to remain in the UK. A person under 18 may make an immigration application without assistance if they wish; however, legal advice should always be sought before making any application.
