Following Brexit, the UK government has introduced a new points-based immigration system. This new system contains many visa options that are available to both EEA and non-EEA nationals.

Under the new system, you will need to score a certain number of points to secure a visa. The points required vary depending on the visa category that you are applying for. To score these points you will need to prove to the Home Office that you can meet the relevant requirements.

EU citizens are not required to apply for a visa if they plan to visit the UK for 90 days or less, but now that free movement has ended between the UK and EU, they must apply for a visa if they plan on staying for more than 90 days or working or studying whilst here.

How can We Manage Your Visas help?

Here at the WMYV, we have immigration lawyers that specialise in UK, US and Irish visas. Applying for a visa is usually a complex process, as well as filling in a detailed application form you will need to put together a substantial portfolio of evidence to prove that you meet the relevant requirements. With so many visa options available, it can also be difficult to know which visas you could be eligible for, and which would suit your circumstance the best.

Our immigration lawyers are passionate about making your immigration journey easier. This is why we offer an Application Package that will provide you with guidance throughout the entire visa application process. Our Advice Package is also included within the full application package.

If you choose our Application Package, one of our lawyers will first arrange an advice session with you. During this session they will discuss your circumstances for you and can assess your eligibility for a visa for either the UK, US or Ireland. They can also answer any questions that you may have about the application process.

Once you have decided on the visa that you would like to apply for, our lawyers will get you started with your application. They can fill in and submit any application forms on your behalf and will help you to gather all of the supporting documents that you will need. Your lawyer will also write you a Letter of Representation to support your application.

It can be easy to make a mistake in a visa application, and doing so can result in it being refused. By getting the assistance of our professional immigration lawyers, you can be sure that your visa application will have the best possible chance of success.
