Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are required to publish information about what data we collect, why we need to store it, and your rights under the GDPR legislation.

In these matters we are subject to the rulings of the Information Commissioner’ Office (ICO), the UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights and data privacy for individuals.

Confidentiality

We store and process data only as agreed by the client or as required in order to perform services requested by the client. We regard all details we do store as confidential.

How we obtain data

Data we hold will consist solely of information that you provide to us (e.g. contact details you enter on forms or correspondence), or is determined through your direct interaction with our website (e.g. your IP address), documents you provide, questionnaire you fill.

Data we hold consists of


Contact information:
Your name. Company name (if applicable). Postal address. Country. Email addresses (if applicable). Telephone numbers (if applicable).
This is used so that we can contact you when needed (e.g. to send invoices, certificates you have requested, communicate information affecting your account or our service to you, etc.)


Payment information:

Payee name. Billing contact details (if applicable). Card type (e.g. Amex, Visa) (card payments only). Last 4 digits of payment card (card payments only). Date and amount of payments.

These are generally kept for a number of years so that we can refer back to them if you send a follow up to our reply, after that they are deleted: At scheduled times throughout the year enquiries over the specified number of years old are removed.

The number of years will depend on the type of enquiry and how it was submitted:


Any correspondence that may potentially relate to a financial transaction, currently active registration or client account, is treated the same as as tax records (tax records are legally required to be stored for a minimum of 6 years) and deleted after 7 years.

    This outfit is first class - I would even say 'Gold Standard'. They are not cheap but are GREAT value for money because they CARE. Rahila is supported by a very bright and helpful guy 'Shah' who is ALWAYS available. Never do I find 'this is the O2 answering service' or 'your call is important to us'. There is ALWAYS someone of flesh and blood and HUMANITY at the other end of the line.

    Trying to do Visas ONLINE is like trying to get a job ONLINE. A route to madness. Give this team a chance. They'll tell it like it is. And they will get you there!

    I went to GSN for help on trying to get my fiancee from the united states to move here. They were very helpful throughout the entire process, initially answering some questions free of charge, then making the whole process very clear to us both during a paid consultation. We eventually came back to them to setup a case and the entire process was very professional with regular and supportive communication; Each step of what we needed to do and what information was needed next was well laid out and explained, with shared google drive folders to collaborate with.

    Unfortunately due to covid, the prospect of my fiancee moving here fell through and, partially in due to that, as did the relationship. GSN were kind enough to grant me a partial refund on the case, which they admit is not the regular procedure but they were understanding of the situation. I would have preferred to have completed using their services, but it was a pleasure to work with them for the time that I did.

    I recommend them especially for their communication and ability to help explain the entire immigration process in a way that's understandable even if you have no prior knowledge.

    Excellent and speedy service from Ms X Liang GSN immigration Ltd it was the best decision ever. I needed a spouse’s visa for my wife, which can be a lengthy process which takes a lot of time and effort. I am so happy that I decided to go with GSN Immigration Ltd, thanks to Ms X Liang’s attention to detail and in-deep scrutiny in checking the documentation provided, the process was very easy and straightforward. The communication was clear and we were helped to understand each stage of process. In the end, a swift decision was made in favour of my wife’s Spouse visa. I will certainly recommend and use their professional services again in the future.

    GSN team assisted me in applying spouse visa from outside uk.
    pleased with there service and level of support i received. had a successful result on the application. Initially, I enquired to most of the solicitors around Harrow-On-The-Hill station. Unlike others, GSN team listened to my situation and gave me confidence by clarifying and providing a clear legal advise.
    The proactive GSN team ensured to submit the application from the eyes of ukvi case worker which reduces the hurdles for immigration team, and increases turn-around time of the application decision. I strongly recommend to others, and support small and local business.

    They did it again 6 months ago Ms. Liang and Mr. Shah helped me extend my tier 2 visa.I was really impressed by their professional service hence I went back for my ILR application. Despite the confusing time due to the virus they handled my case very well and helped me get my ILR successfully. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for immigration advice and I will definitely go back to them myself.

    Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value I used GSN Immigration to extend Spouse Visa for Nirmaya Thapa Magar. I am her uncle and helping her and her father Inlaw Mr Prem Bahadur Pun. We were finding difficult as to what kind of document/papers to present for the application let alone the appropriate application form because of the complication of status of applicant we were worried. When I contacted Mrs Rahila and explained in details she gave me lots of assurances that she can handle this case. This was big relief to us. Mrs Rahila and Mr ZShah were very polite and professional who helped us with all paperworks and fill up application form with strong recommendations. As result Spouse Visa for Nirmaya was successful! Mrs Rahila gave further help/advise for PPI application for husband of Nirmaya Mr Bishal. I would definitely recommend GSN Immigration to my friends and relatives.
