Applying for a UK visa

Generally, you need to apply for your UK visa from a country in which you are a citizen or permanent resident. When you apply, you’ll need your original passport. You’ll also need to remain in your home country while your application is processed.

Application processing times fluctuate throughout the year and can take two to three months. We recommend that you make arrangements for your visa well in advance of any planned travel. We also advise against booking non-refundable or non-flexible travel prior to visa approval.

There are a number of switching rules imposed by UK Visas and Immigration; in many instances, you cannot switch visa status within the UK. It is important to make sure that you apply for and obtain the most appropriate visa for your circumstances before travelling.

We have some exciting news
for all our 1st Contact clients...

1st Contact is rebranding to Sable International!

For the last 18 months we've been merging with our big brother, Sable International. By the end of the year, we're going to complete the rebrand.

The accountants, brokers, advisors and caseworkers that you are used to dealing with will not be going anywhere as the entire 1st Contact team will be in the same roles at Sable International. You'll still get that same great service, just under a new name.

We'll be keeping you in the loop as we prepare for the next exciting phase in this rebranding.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly.
