An Introduction to Immigration and other Visas to the United Kingdom
The range of UK immigration services available to people wishing to immigrate to Britain is broad and varied, encompassing economic based routes such as UK work permits, and the Tier 1 visa, as well as family immigration visas and visitor visas designed for those wishing to visit Britain for a short period.
At BAIS, our immigration consultants offer expert advice on every class of UK immigration service and provide a comprehensive package of services to suit your needs, from initial advice on making a UK visa application through to on arrival services to help you adapt to living and working in Britain.
UK Business Visas
Economic migration is a key component of the British economy allowing skilled migrants to bring desirable skills and experience to the domestic workforce.
The Tier 1, is a points-based visa service specifically designed to attract the most gifted individuals to the United Kingdom.
In addition, applying for a Tier 2 Work Permit, allows a British company to sponsor an overseas worker to come to Britain and contribute to the British economy by bringing their skills to the domestic workforce.
Business based British visas take a variety of forms and BAIS can help people to gain UK entry clearance and to apply for business immigration through several routes.
The Entrepreneur visa allows experienced business people to live and work in Great Britain, investing capital and starting a business within the United Kingdom.
Alternatively, applicants may come to Britain on a self-employed visa, with a pioneering idea under an innovator visa or simply to invest in the British economy through a Tier 1 Investor visa.
British visa applications under all of these routes offer the potential to apply for Indefinite leave to remain in the UK (ILR) or permanent residency as it is often known.
We can help applicants to switch when appropriate from one route to another and can manage applications for permanent residence and later British naturalization as a UK citizen.
Other UK Immigration Solutions
As well as business based applications for visas for Britain, we can also help you to obtain any of the range of visas for UK immigration, which allow people to train or study in Britain, and to experience life in the United Kingdom.
A study permit, or Tier 4 student visa, allows international students to study in the UK experiencing the culture and environment of the United Kingdom whilst at University.
Beyond a study visa, the Post Study Work Programme and Youth Mobility Scheme allow students and young people to experience working in the UK for a limited time.
