Move Up believes that applying for a UK Visa or British Passport shouldn’t be complicated, or over-priced. That’s why our consultants are experts in the British government’s visa rules and requirements – so you don’t have to be.

As proof that we have your best interests at heart, we won’t even take on your case unless you actually meet the criteria for the visa you want.And we’re happy to tell you if you qualify or not, up front – with zero assessment fees attached.(That’s pretty unheard of, right?).

In fact, we’re so protective of our clients that we offer a genuine money-back guarantee; we promise that 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.

Here are a few more reasons why Move Up is the leading UK immigration agency for South Africans:

    • We strive to maintain a 6-working-hour response time to the last email sent. Our team members’ real response time actually averages around 2 working hours. That means we are quick.
    • We have a 97% application success rate.
    • We are the only immigration agency to publicly list our case fees.
    • Move Up has successfully represented extremely complex cases such as the claim to the Right of Abode.
