IVS Immigration & Visa Services can assist in all UK immigration visa services in respect of clients throughout the world. We are registered with the OISC in all categories of immigration work including applications under the Points Based System (Tier 1, Tier 4 and Tier 5), European law, British nationality & citizenship, Marriage Applications and UK Visitors We are providing free initial assessment through to top class legal advice.
The five-tier points based system encompasses all highly skilled work, study, and training immigration routes into the country. It has undergone a number of changes since its inception in 2008, most notably the removal of Tier 1 (General) for highly skilled migrants in favor of a new Exceptional Talent visa, and a cap on the number of visa available under Tier 1 and Tier 2.
The removal mainly affects overseas applicants. People seeking extensions to their Tier 1 (General) visa are still able to apply for a Tier 1 (General) visa extension, and people in the UK under certain other visa categories may still switch into Tier 1 (General).
Tier 2 (General) has become the most realistic immigration route for most people living outside of the country who wish to immigrate to the UK as a skilled worker.
With all of these changes, navigating the UK immigration system can be a difficult and time-consuming process. You may have to wait months for your UK visa application to be processed by the UK Border Agency, or spend the whole day there to then find that you do not have all the relevant documentation. We are OISC registered and can submit your UK visa application to the Home Office to be dealt with on the same day.
