Immigration Fees

Contact us if you are unsure about any of our fees

Our Fees

This fee scale outlines our fees for all immigration advice and services. This is a guide only and we would need to know the full circumstances of your case before agreeing a fee. We normally charge on a fixed fee basis. However, should you wish to withdraw instructions part way through your immigration case we will charge you for all work we have undertaken on your behalf at an hourly rate of £250 (plus VAT, where applicable). Please note that our organisation is VAT registered. Therefore VAT @ 20% will be added to the fees outlined below where applicable, i.e. if you are a resident of the UK or EU receiving our services in the UK.

Hourly Rate

We will also charge on an hourly rate of £250, time estimated in advance, where no fixed fee applies (e.g. provision of Advice).

Our fees guide includes dependants but the number of dependants would increase our charge within the fee range where a range is given.

Please note Home Office application fees are not included in our fixed fees and must be paid additionally – we will advise at the outset of any Home Office fees.

Consultation fee

We offer a consultation service whereby we charge £150 for an hour consultation which will be deducted from our fixed fee in the event you proceed with a substantive matter.

Innovator visa – please note it is as yet unclear as to how much work will be involved in these applications when they are able to be made (please see our blog on this) but we anticipate our fees would be in the region of £4,000 - £12,000, depending on how much assistance is required with the application for endorsement, amongst other factors
