What our Clients Say
“Jonathan has been my trusted Immigration Practitioner & Advisor since September 2009 – exactly 5 years ago….all the way from converting my Student Visa to a Tier One General then, and now on the verge of getting my ILR later in 2014. Over these 5 years, I have no hesitation in saying that he has been absolutely stellar in his approach. To me, three things stand out in this context. First & foremost, is Jonathan’s ‘Master Yoda Like’ knowledge of what the Home Office expects and then pre-empting any unusual quirks/questions that may come up. Second, is the fact that his firm is neither a one-man show nor is it a huge firm where one tends to get lost; it is a mid-sized well-oiled machine, where Jonathan’s skills are well-supplemented by a reliable team making the final offering to the client a most desirable end product. Finally, not only are charges reasonable generally relative to the quality of work but the No Success-No Fees Policy indeed speaks volume of Jonathan and his team’s confidence in their abilities year after year.”

“I would very highly recommend Jonathan Beech and the Migrate UK team for immigration inquiries and support. I turned to them in the run-up to applying for ILR while on a Tier 2 work permit, at a time when advice previously given to me had turned out to be erroneous, leading me to become very worried that I would not be eligible for ILR and that my status in the UK was in serious jeopardy. I urgently called the Migrate team on the back of a recommendation from my brother and quickly got the advisement I needed, and I was happy to receive my ILR a couple of months later. Beyond providing sound advice, perhaps equally important was how the Migrate team handled my query at a time of personal distress. They were very quick to respond, attentive to my situation, very reassuring, and gave me the right information. Not only were they professional, but also very caring and supportive.”

“In January 2020, the Home Office sent us a sponsor licence final suspension (pre-revocation) letter on the basis that they did not believe one of our sponsored employees was carrying out a skilled vacancy and that we were not holding the required records for our employees.
We disputed this and reached out to Migrate UK to act as our representative to remedy the situation and ensure we could retain our licence and our employee of nearly five years. Migrate UK provided us with comprehensive guidance on the supporting material to be gathered to back up our claim and drafted a detailed response based on our situation using experience gained in situations faced by other organisations which have found themselves approaching Migrate UK in similar circumstances.
We are delighted to report that the suspension was removed and that we have been awarded our Grade ‘A’ licence rating again. Many thanks for the team at Migrate UK who made this possible and were a pleasure to work with at a time of extreme stress.”

Chartered Accountancy firm in London
“Dear Jonathan It has been a pleasure having mine and my family’s Tier 1 UK Immigration application processed through you and your team. Your highly professional approach coupled with a strong personal touch has been invaluable. Most importantly though, what stood out throughout our interaction was your ‘outstanding knowledge of the process & almost soothsayer like ability to know what and when to expect’. Moreover, compared to many other firms not only are your charges more reasonable but your policy of initially clarfying all doubts at no cost and then saying that you would only charge the fees upon grant of the visa is indeed extremely commendable, especially in today’s times. May I take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish you and your firm all the best for the future.”

These have continued to be at the forefront of the company’s philosophy.
With over 20 years working and consulting in UK immigration, Jonathan has gained exceptional levels of trust and credibility through his diligent and conscientious attitude towards his practice. Having moved headquarters to Milton Park in July 2013, strong relationships have been created and we have begun hosting seminars around a number of interesting topics within the Human Resources sector.
