Under the UK Immigration Rules

Apply for a Visa to Visit the UK

Millions of people visit the UK for different reasons every year. Some visit the UK for a holiday, to attend a business meeting, to meet their family or attend a function in the UK, It is a Visitor Visa that allows you to enter the UK. A lot of people apply for a Visit Visa and many are refused simply because the Entry Clearance Officer does not believe that they intend to return to their home country after their visit to the UK, but we can help you get it right the first time around! Or if you have been refused once, twice or even thrice get in touch and we can still help.

You can apply for a Visit visa from your home country or country of your residence as long as you intend to return back to your home or residence’s country and understand that you will not have the right to work in the UK and you will not have access to free healthcare either,but  you can get Travel Insurance to cover your visit.

There are many reasons you may want to apply for a Visitor visa such as the following:

  • Family Visitor visa
  • General Visitor visa
  • Child Visitor visa
  • Business Visitor visa, including visas for academics, doctors and dentists
  • Sports Visitor visa
  • Entertainer Visitor visa
  • Prospective Entrepreneur visa
  • Private Medical Treatment Visitor visa

There are different lengths of visitor visas from 6 months to 10 years but it is not to be confused with the maximum time you can stay in the UK which is 6 months in any 12 month period, otherwise you might overstay your visa which can have implications on your further stay in the UK or future applications.

Apply to Settle in the UK & obtain British Nationality

There are different routes to Settlement depending on the visa or visas that you apply for. 

The 5 Year Route to Settlement is for:

  • spouses that have been on a relevant  visa for 5 years 
  • children on a dependent visa of their parents or relative 
  • adult dependent relatives 
  • parent’s of a British child 
  • migrants that have been on a Tier 1 or Tier 2 General Visa for a minimum of 5 years (these routes can be combined to make up 5 years) Please note that the Tier 2 ICT Visa does not lead to Settlement

The 10 Year Route to Settlement is for:

  • spouses/ children/ adult dependant of a settled person that have been unable to meet any of the requirements under Appendix FM and have been issued a visa to remain in the UK under the 10 year route to settlement
  • migrants that have been on a valid visa in the UK for a minimum of 10 years

Apply for a Visa under the Points Based System

There are many opportunities to migrate to the UK for either work, study or business. The UK has much to offer migrants that are highly skilled, high net worth or want to have the best education in the world. The Points Based System has the following options for migrants:

  • Tier 4 Student Visa- to study in the UK at Bachelor’s Level or Postgraduate Level. This visa now has the opportunity to go on to apply for a 2 year Post Study Work Visa to gain valuable UK work experience
  • Tier 2 General Work Visa – to work in the UK by being sponsored by an employer such as the NHS 
  • Tier 1 Innovator or Start-Up Visa – for businessmen who want to do business in the UK with an innovative idea 
  • Tier 5 Visa – for commonwealth migrants under 30 years of age to work in the UK for up to 2 years and gain valuable experience

    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!

    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.
