At Move Up, we understand that applying for a UK Visa or British Passport can be a daunting and confusing process. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to simplify the process and make it more affordable for South Africans looking to relocate to the UK.

Founded in 2010 by Ryan Rennison, who previously worked at a large internationally established firm in 2008 and fell in love with the industry, Move Up was created with the vision of doing things better than the international firms. We put in ethical guarantees and have our caseworkers do the sales, to ensure that our clients receive the best possible service.

We are proud to have a 97% application success rate and a 6-working-hour response time to the last email sent. Our team members’ real response time averages around 2 working hours, which means we are quick in responding to our clients’ needs.

We believe in being transparent with our clients, which is why we are the only immigration agency to publicly list our case fees. Additionally, we offer a genuine money-back guarantee; if your visa application is not awarded first time around and it’s an error on Move Up’s side, we will refund your Move Up case fee in full.

Our team has successfully represented extremely complex cases, such as the claim to the Right of Abode. We process approximately 1000 applications a year, and our expertise comes through the experience we have gained.

At Move Up, we are dedicated to helping our clients navigate the UK immigration process and achieve their goals. Contact us today to schedule a free assessment and take the first step towards your new life in the UK.
