Migrate UK aim to charge fixed fees in the majority of circumstances.
These fees are based on the anticipated time spent on a particular application process. All applications are different, and we are careful to take all relevant information on board when highlighting the fixed fee. In some circumstances, there may be complexities or delays outside our control that could incur extra charges, but these will be discussed with you in advance.
Fixed fees quoted are for full representation i.e. ownership of the application to include all:
Completion of necessary application forms
Recommending and checking supporting documents
Submitting the application and preparing the document bundle / uploading to the Home Office portal as appropriate.
In some circumstances, you may wish to have structured written advice, meet with a consultant or have us check a completed application and supporting documents (a check and advise service). In these situations, our charges begin at £175 per hour. We will provide an estimate to the likely total fee once we have carefully consulted on your situation.
An additional 20% tax (VAT) may need to be added to our professional fees.
Outside of our professional fees, it is likely you will need to pay other fees including:
A Home Office application fee for a visa or Biometric Residency Permit
An NHS Surcharge per year of stay (paid in advance)
For employers; a Skills Charge for some sponsored jobs under the Points Based System
Disbursements such as post charges, translations or certification of documents
English language tests including the Life in the UK test (where applicable)
Again, these charges will be discussed with you and an indication of charges included within our client care letter.
