Welcome to Move Up’s guide on UK immigration.

If you’re considering moving to the United Kingdom, you’ve come to the right place. The UK offers a variety of visa options for those looking to live and work in the country, and we’re here to help you navigate the process.

The first step in immigrating to the UK is to determine what type of visa you’re eligible for. The most common types of visas are the Skilled Worker visa (previously known as the Tier 2 visa), the Student visa (previously known as the Tier 4 student visa), and the Ancestry visa.

The Skilled Worker visa is for those with a job offer from a UK employer in a skilled occupation. This visa requires the employer to hold a valid sponsorship license, and the employee to pass a points-based assessment. This visa also includes a minimum salary requirement and a minimum level of English language proficiency.

The Student visa is for those looking to study in the UK. This visa requires the applicant to have an offer of a place on a course from a UK educational institution and demonstrate their ability to support themselves financially while studying in the UK.

The Ancestry visa is for those with a grandparent born in the UK. This visa allows the applicant to live and work in the UK for up to five years.

Once you’ve determined which visa you’re eligible for, the next step is to gather the necessary documentation and submit your application. The application process can be complex, but with the right guidance, it can be completed successfully.

At Move Up, we have a team of dedicated visa consultants who have a wealth of experience in helping applicants navigate the UK visa system. We can help you with every aspect of the process, from determining your eligibility and gathering documentation to submitting your application and providing ongoing support.

We also offer a full refund guarantee in our representation. If we offer representation in your case and it is not awarded first time round, we refund our case fee in full.
