Work and Business Immigration


British immigration law relating to people entering the country to work or form a business is governed by a points-based system. Different tiers within that system relate to workers and self-employed individuals.

Great care needs to be taken when completing applications ans submitting supporting evidence under each of these tiers as the UK Border Agency applies the rules very strictly. Specific rules relating to the amount of money you must have to support yourself upon your arrival in the UK mean that you must retain the funds for a set length of time and provide documented evidence of those funds. Many applications in these categories whichought to succeed fail because applicants do not provide all of the information and documentation requested or meet the maintenance requirements.

Special rules also apply to individuals previously granted leave to enter or remain under the UK's old immigration system who are now seeking to extend their leave under the new system.

In addition to our unrivalled commercial experience, we deliver the best immigration law advice in the Gateshead region, as a client of Hutharts you are guaranteed a first-rate, friendly service in your work/business immigration issues.
