UK visa consultants, helping you settle in the UK

For most people, applying for a visa or citizenship is a daunting task. Red tape, bureaucracy and changing legislation have made UK visa applications overly complicated.

We wanted to make this process easier and less intimidating, so we’ve built our business around expert visa and nationality advice since 1998.

Whether you need to apply for an Ancestry visa or Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), employ a foreign national for your business or spend a gap year abroad, we have the knowledge and experience to make the process smooth and stress-free.

We offer a full suite of UK visa and immigration services:

We work according to a strict “no visa, no fee” policy. If you don’t get your visa, you don’t pay us a penny.

Our 1st Contact visas team can kick start your journey to the UK. Contact our visa consultants to determine whether you’re eligible for the visa you wish to apply for. We'll advise you, deal with the Home Office on your behalf and guide you every step of the way.

If you’ve decided to make the UK your home, we can also help you extend or finalise your stay by helping with your ILR application. ILR allows you to work without restriction in the UK and exit and re-enter the country multiple times, with the end goal of gaining British citizenship.

We have some exciting news
for all our visas clients...

1st Contact Visas is rebranding to Sable International!

For the last 18 months we've been slowly merging with our big brother, Sable International. Over the next year we're going to complete that merger. This will in no way affect your visa, ILR, citizenship, passport or work permit applications.

Your caseworker 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 great 1st Contact Visas 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.
