Services We Provide

Consultations

We take care to correctly assess and advise in all immigration related enquiries, and will give you an opinion of whether you will qualify in any particular application. We are regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) to offer assistance and specialist advice on specific categories of immigration. At Carter Bedi McKay we can prepare your application for you and will make sure that it is fully compliant before making the application.

Faster One Day Service

In some cases you can apply in person to the Border Agency's Public Enquiry Office (PEO) for a “One Day” decision. Unless you are needed to be present (for biometric identification preocess) we are also able to check a qualifying faster service application in advance and process it for you. Please bear in mind that it only needs one document to be out of date or not available for the Border Agency to refuse an application. There is no opportunity to have the application held open while you rush home to get the required piece of paper. Please call for information about which types of application are handled in this One Day service.

Help for Employers recruiting Overseas Nationals

A complex “points-based system” applies to almost all categories of employment and self-employment for nationals of countries outside the EEA. A sponsor licence is needed by the prospective employer to permit them to take any type of work, paid or unpaid. Your business documents will be needed to show that you qualify to employ an overseas national. In dealing with your application, the Border Agency may visit your business to be satisfied that your license application may be approved. We are regulated to offer employers a full assessment service and help with the application process. Once approved, you can issue certificates of sponsorship for defined and agreed types of employment and the licence will be valid for 4 years.
