The two refusals of my visit visa application to see my partner left us both with a sense of disheartening helplessness. It was only after our initial interactions with Nelam and her team that we saw a glimmer of hope. Be it their conscientious effort in explaining the logical aspect of the requirements, or their direct but professional approach addressing our concerns.
Nelam advised us of our options, her team quickly and efficiently worked together, advising us and helping compile a comprehensive application. Gerard Harrison was very helpful, replying promptly to every email, and guiding us through the process. My visa was granted within days and I am now in the UK with my partner. We would definitely recommend UKIS and would use their service again. Thank you!Suman & Jill – Devonshire,
We came to Nelam and the team about a year ago with a very complex immigration case, having been made a total mess by a previous immigration lawyer. It seemed like there would be no end to the process and we were fast losing hope, having been told by other lawyers “the only way you can stay is if you get married”.
This was not an option for us as we wanted to do it the right way and we are so grateful to have found Nelam and all the team – Shabana, Arifa and everyone else who helped. An application was submitted and we were so impressed at the work done for us. Detailed, accurate and diligent down to the last detail. We got a positive response earlier than the home office guideline and I can assume that it was in part to do with the high standard of application submitted.
We had so many dark days over the past 3 years and Nelam and the team have changed that for us. They managed our expectations both from a timeline and an outcome point of view. We had faith in them the entire process and we could not fault them in any way. We would be delighted to recommend them to anyone and I hope that they can also help to change your lives for the better.Ms A Munemo – Barclays Wealth and Investment Banking,
UKIS helped me to obtain a EEA Family Residence Card for my mother this year. It was very difficult to choose the right solicitor to represent my mother's case as I had approached few in the City who advised me different things. However, there was not enough clarity in respect of the documentation required and if I can make an application from within the UK.
I visited UKIS and met Nelam Trewin (Director) and Gerard Harrison. I was advised about the documentation, timelines and chance of success. I was very satisfied with the honest and expert opinion. Initial meeting was face to face, thereafter the communication was via email. Gerard kept us updated about the documents required for the application to avoid any confusion. At each step of the application, both Nelam and Gerard did a fantastic job to provide me with a satisfying answer. I was confident that I was in the safe hands and high chance of success.
It was very stressful for our family as my mother was living alone in India with no one to take care of her. I would like to thank Nelam and Gerard for their help with the application and making the process so smooth and stress free. I would highly recommend anyone considering making an immigration application to contact UKIS for the help and expect an honest and expert opinion.Mr Khanna, Consultant, Dun and Bradstreet,
My family and I wish to thank Nelam and her team for the excellent work done on our applications. Because of the complexity of our case and complex immigration rules always changing, we had almost lost hope. We were back and forth with applications and appeals and this was a very stressful time. We finally got there in the end and were granted leave. I put the success down to the work done on our case. Nelam and her team were thorough with the paperwork, and professional throughout our dealings. What an excellent and outcome. Thank you for making this happen.Bukky and family, Portsmouth,
Dear Nelam - We are delighted to tell you that Amit’s visa application was successful and he is here at last in the UK! We couldn't be more relieved. We wanted to let you know how grateful we both are for your professional guidance and help all along. You were prompt, ever obliging and patient in answering all our queries so that we could take an informed decision in a period that was very challenging and unsettling for us. You went out of your way to assist us and for this we are very thankful.
We appreciate all the support that you and your team gave us. We obviously will not hesitate in approaching you in the future or recommending you to our friends and family.

UKIS helped my wife obtain a spouse visa for the United Kingdom. I contacted them from the United States in order to help me. I was very nervous with the procedure at the beginning, as I found the UK government website very complicated. UKIS answered all my questions and concerns in a very timely manner. I found this company to be very professional and I am planning on using them again when it is time to extend my wife’s visa.Paul Hyams - Winchmore Hill London,
Absolutely excellent, timely communication from Gerard around every query we had, and the advice given at all stages of the visa application was clear and specific, allowing us to ensure we submitted every single piece of relevant information. A 100% recommended service - many thanks.Paul and Eunice - Carlisle,
I had been going through a stressful time over the past few years due to my parent’s immigration case. My lawyer at that time was not clear; we had no idea of where we stood and where given the run-around.
In October 2015, I started searching for a new immigration lawyer, there were so many. I came across UKIS and luckily decided to call and make an appointment. The consultation was conducted by Nelam and Shabana. The advice was very clear and I didn’t hesitate instructing UKIS. Shabana was assigned to handle the case and guided me through the process and paperwork. She had great knowledge and was very patient listening to our complicated case. My mother and father’s cases were separate and complex.
My father was previously refused a family visit visa and a subsequent Judicial Review claim dismissed. In 2015, he applied again and was refused. Nelam and Shabana managed to get the refusal overturned by way of a pre action protocol letter. A few days after the pre action protocol letter was sent I was informed by Nelam that she had received notice that the refusal had been overturned and my father would be issued entry clearance . I couldn't believe this news was for real!
Thanks to UKIS my father got his visa in December. I cannot explain how happy we are as a family. UKIS were amazing and I would like to thank Shabana , Nelam, Hardeep and the whole UKIS team.
I would, without any hesitation whatsoever, recommend UKIS to anyone with immigration problems. They are passionate about their work and care about their clients.L.K. - Retail Manager, London,
I was in a difficult situation in terms of my complex ILR application. I spent more time out of the UK than was allowed for an ILR application . Having spoken to many firms about this, I decided to instruct UKIS. This was because when I spoke to them, it was evident they had experience dealing with complex applications like mine. UKIS handled my application with great care and professionalism. They dedicated a huge amount of time and effort to my application to ensure that I had the highest chance of success, many out of office hours were spent on my application going through every detail with great care. Despite the tense and stressful situation I was in, Shabana was always calm and assuring. My application was a success and my family and I were granted ILR.
I would like to thank Nelam and Shabana for their pure dedication and support through what was a very anxious time for me and my family. Even after submitting our applications, Shabana stayed in contact with me. She was the one who broke the good news to me and I am forever grateful to UKIS. I highly recommend UKIS for their outstanding service and commitment.Mr S Uslay – Director Pozitron Ltd, IT Manager in a global insurance company,
I first came across UKIS in 1999. Since then I have referred many clients to them, most of whom had difficult applications. Quentin and Nelam have great knowledge dealing with all aspects of immigration law. They have travelled abroad to represent some of the clients I referred. I would highly recommend UKIS.M Singh – Lakshmi Sweet Centre – Wolverhampton,
