Immigration Fees

We believe that since 1999 UK Immigration law has dramatically and rapidly changed and continues to change, a recent example of these changes are the introduction of skilled worker visas, EU Settlement Scheme and visas from BN(O) from Hong Kong. Therefore in these circumstances you require someone to deal with your case who is not only fully familiar with the historical changes of UK Immigration Laws but is also fully up to date with the recent changes.

At Makka Solicitors Ltd, our immigration work is undertaken by dedicated and experienced solicitors and caseworkers. We have a number of caseworkers from legal and non-legal academic backgrounds. Most of our caseworkers have many years of immigration law experience. We also have new caseworkers who are supervised by Mr Fida Chaudhary who is head of our Immigration Department. He is a director of the firm and has almost 20 years of experience in UK Immigration Laws.

We have successfully challenged UK Immigration Laws in the Tribunals, High Court and in the Court of Appeal. As well as our own experienced Immigration practitioners, most of our instructed barristers have substantial Immigration Law experience and some of them are themselves Immigration Judges. Therefore, with us you can be rest assured that you will also be receiving honest and reputable advice.

We specialise in a number of immigration areas such as, but not limited to, Skilled Workers, Sponsorship Licences, Student Visas, Spouse Visas, Asylum, Family Reunion for Refugees, Human Rights Application, Visit Visas, Nationality, Judicial Review, British Passport Applications, EU Settlement Scheme and many more. For more details, please contact us.

We mainly work on a fixed fee basis in most Immigration matters. Our fees are dependent on the type of application being made and the circumstances of that application. For more details on our fee please see the table below.
