* Disbursements

Charging VAT in relation to immigration matters can be complex as it may depend on where you live and what immigration permission you have. We will confirm whether VAT (at a rate of 20%) is payable when you instruct us. Nevertheless, it is important to note all applications made from outside the UK do not usually need to pay VAT and those in the UK usually do.


These are difficult to estimate. You can bring a friend or another community figure to come and help interpret. If a document requires translation, we will obtain fees for the certified translation and confirm this to you. Please note you do not have to use an interpreter of the firms choosing and are welcome to get the translation done by yourself as long as it is done in the required manner and has a certificate confirming the certification credentials needed.
