Disbursements: – these are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa fees. We can handle the payment disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process. Examples of these are
- Any Home Office fees for making the application. You will pay this to the Home Office or UK Visa’s & Immigration directly as part of the application process.
- Immigration Health Surcharge – this is payable by non-EEA Nationals, on all visa applications made from outside the UK to enter for more than 6 months but not permanently and for all immigration applications made within the UK (except for permanent residence)
- Interpreters’ fees, if required, from £28 to £40 per hour. These are estimates and depend on the language and availability of interpreter.
- Translation of any foreign language documents into English before submitting. These are typically based on the number of words to be translated. The rates depend on the language and type of document and can vary from £100 to £180 per 1,000 words. If this is required, we will obtain a quote before any work is carried out.
- Independent expert reports e.g. medical experts. These are not required in many cases: we will let you know as soon as possible if we consider an expert report is necessary.
How long will the application take?
We will normally be able to submit this type of application within 2 to 3 weeks of you instructing us, but this is subject to satisfactory ID verification of both applicant and sponsor, receipt of our signed terms and conditions and all the required supporting documents from you. If it is likely to take longer, we let you know at the earliest opportunity.
We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. Please read the current processing times here.
