A consultation is a perfect starting point if you would like to discuss your situation in depth with an experienced specialist, to find out how the UK immigration rules would likely apply in your case, or, if you have questions about an application you are making and want some guidance. They can also be useful for business and organisational needs, to determine visa options for your activities.
Do you need initial, expert UK immigration advice on which visa route is suitable to your situation?
Do you want some professional insight to discuss the rules and regulations in your case?
Are you in the process of making an application but you're stuck on some of the requirements?
A one-off consultation is where we arrange a time at your convenience to link up online or over the phone - distance and timezone are no barrier. For clients who are in or near the Edinburgh area, we're glad to meet up to discuss your case over coffee, at your home or your workplace.
Our consultation service covers: - the applicant's immigration history to the UK, - what their intended purpose is and exploring some of the options available, - specific aspects or questions that you have about the UK immigration rules and regulations as they relate to you, - taking a holistic view of where your most likely route starts - and ends - and planning towards that.
Consultations can also be used for: - addressing any questions you have about an application you're making, - talking you through how to apply for the visa you need, - discussing best-fit visa options for your business or organisational activities.
All consultations are followed up with case-specific written summary, outlining our discussion and giving further information, links and guidance relevant to your situation which you can refer to as you move forward.

4. Summary Following the consultation, we will prepare an overview of what was discussed - it will normally summarise the key points of advice provided and can include links or attachments to detailed information relevant to your situation. This is normally within 48-72 hours, but occasionally, a matter might require further research in which case, we'll let you know if it will take longer to provide you with a full written response.
