      My visa is about to expire. Can IAS immigration solicitors help me?

      If your current visa is due to expire anytime soon, you must apply for an extension or arrange your way back home as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you may face severe consequences, including a permanent ban from entering the UK.

      When applying for a visa extension, you must produce an extensive bundle of documents to support your case and highlight the reasons why you should remain in the UK.

      If your application is unsuccessful, you will need to leave the UK. For many migrants, this may mean losing their job, home and legal residency rights in this country. For this reason, your renewal forms should be completed correctly, without any mistake.

      On the other hand, if you have accumulated at least five years of continuous residency in the UK and you meet additional criteria, you may be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain and settle in the UK.

      To receive professional support for your application, you can hire one of IAS’ immigration law specialists in the UK. You can meet our team in London or one of our offices in the country. Get in touch with our team today to learn more.
