Managing Director, Studies in UK, Delhi

UK Immigration Services was recommended to me by a retired Entry Clearance Officer, that was in 2003. Since then I have used their services to help many of my students who had fairly complex cases. Their advice has always been honest and their services professional with realistic fees. In particular I would like to express my gratitude to Nelam and Quentin who have worked extremely hard and travelled abroad on numerous occasions to represent my students.

The OISC allows different levels of qualification to be acquired and I have been struck by the quality and professionalism shown by some firms. Indeed one firm I rate highly is United Kingdom Immigration Services (“UKIS”) based in West London and headed up by the excellent Nelam Trewin. I have had a number of referrals and instructions from them and have found them to be the equal of and indeed better than a great number of immigration solicitors.

I would like to acknowledge the exceptional work of Nelam Trewin who has supported us throughout the whole journey all the way to successful completion of our settlement visa application. Nelam's support provided us with peace of mind as she truly cares about her clients. For Nelam, what she does every day for people is more than 'just a job'. She is making a big difference in people's lives at the most challenging periods and I am forever grateful for my friend's recommendation to use her services.

I contacted UKIS in relation to an application for my family members. From the very first moment I contacted UKIS I was very impressed, the case was fairly complex. Their advice was very clear and they gave me a true account of my options. I would like to thank Nelam who was very prompt in answering my questions. Thank you for listening to me and for the way you prepared the case which resulted in a successful outcome. UKIS are truly dedicated and professional. I would definitely recommend them!

I can’t tell you how happy I am that my application has been approved today (16.03.21), after 20 years in the UK I can now live with freedom. I know my application was complex and I did not have enough evidence, but I do believe the way my case was prepared made all the difference . Thank you very much to all the team, especially Valentina, who provided a professional service at all times. I am very happy with the service and outcome and will refer many more clients.

Ms A Akram

I was extremely stressed before I contacted UKIS, the fear of being removed to Pakistan was very frightening. My experience with UKIS has been amazing. A BIG thank you to Valentina who prepared my application professionally. You made the whole process seem easy, although I understand my case was not straightforward. I am forever grateful to you. I will be back for my extension in 2.5 years.

West Byfleet, Surrey,

We had already made an application for my wife for spouse entry clearance.  Unfortunately through misleading instructions on the website, our application was refused as we had not presented our evidence in the correct way.  We had two options, appeal which could take up to two years or seek professional advice.  After much research, we were directed towards Nelam Trewin and her company of specialists at UK Immigration Services.  We were advised to make a fresh application from the USA.  Gerard Harrison, one of the consultants at UK Immigration Services, handled our case. He personally guided us through the labyrinth of data that we needed to collect. Often it was difficult for us but Gerard remained professional and very helpful in guiding us through the mine field.  I am delighted to say my wife now has her visa and we are together in the UK.   We know that we would not have succeeded without their expertise and we cannot recommend them to you more highly.  They will not let you down.

Nelam I want to take this opportunity once again to say BIG THANKS to you and your team for the successful outcome of my ILR application. Words aren't enough to express my appreciation for your support, guidance and thoughtfulness. I was in a very difficult situation and as a man it was difficult to talk about the abuse I had endured. I had contacted a few lawyers before contacting you but did not get good professional advice. Nelam you explained the rules for an application based on domestic violence, your advice was very clear. You have always been very professional and understanding. From my first call to you I felt reassured by your advice and knowledge. You put hope and smile back into my life. I admit I called many times just for reassurance. Nelam and Gerard you guided me through the whole process, with Gerard investing so much time and attention to details of the paper work we got the desired decision within the shortest possible time. I have and will continue to recommend UKIS. Thank you, thank you and thank you.

Mr Olu

Senior IT Consultant , London

Dear Nelam - I would like to express my appreciation to you and the staff at UKIS. I made the right choice choosing your company to handle my application. It was prepared very well with a thorough cover letter. I feel that the speedy outcome of my application was due to the preparation. Anyone looking for a professional and reliable company, look no further than UKIS!

D. Kim

Media Analyst, Surrey

Dear Nelam and Meryl, as you know I was very stressed when I first contacted you. There was a gap in my 10 year residence and I was advised by many city law firms that my application would be refused. You fully researched my case and advised that there was a high chance of success and referred me to the rules, guidance and case law. I instructed you and I cannot describe how happy I was after receiving the phone call from you telling me I had been granted ILR. I wanted to scream but I was in the quiet study area in a library, a long way from the entrance. I am absolutely sure that it would have been very difficult to receive ILR if it had not been for your fantastic work. Since I first saw your website and exchanged emails, I instinctively felt that I must go with you for my visa application. It has turned out to be one of my best decisions! I am so glad and grateful for all your hard work and professionalism. For the right choice and a personal service, I would recommend UKIS!

Mr Ghassan

Consultant, Dubai

I had been refused a Visitor Visa on 3 occasions, no matter what I did the UK Embassy kept on refusing despite me being well travelled and stable. I was very stressed, I called many companies and was given conflicting advice, the fees ranged from very low to ridiculously high. When I contacted UKIS their fee was reasonable for the service they offered and I felt comfortable with their advice. I instructed them and am pleased I made that choice. They prepared my application methodically, their cover letter was impressive and my visa was later granted. If you are looking for an experienced conscientious company offering excellent service then UKIS is highly recommended. They will go that extra mile! A special thanks to Nelam and Gerard.

Mr Gholamreza

London

My daughter's application to enter the UK was refused and the Embassy informed me that they would be imposing a 10 year ban on all future applications. I instructed UKIS to deal with the case and although it was tough, thanks to their preparation and legal arguments the appeal was allowed. I want to say that I was impressed with the way the appeal was prepared and represented at the hearing. A heartfelt thanks to everyone at UKIS. I would especially recommend UKIS to anyone who needs to appeal or for any immigration matter.

Mr Gabriel

Events Manager, UK

Now we have arrived in the UK and are about start our new life I wanted to take a moment to thank Nelam and Gerard for your support in applying for the visa for my wife. I can honestly say that right from the outset I knew I had made the right choice in appointing you for the Visa application. Even though we were in Vietnam and you were in the UK that was no hurdle in the way you supported us. The clear and precise explanation of the steps and how to achieve them was more than reassuring. Throughout the difficult process you were always available to assist and explain. Your support and experience made me feel that we were always going to be successful with our application which proved to be case. I would like to add that this was the first successful application from Vietnam for almost a year and was issued in record time of 40 days from submitting the application!!!!. Well done and thanks again to you both. From our experience I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs this service.

Mr & Mrs Singh

Ilford

My wife and I had overstayed our visitor visas in the UK by a few years. We went to various solicitors and were advised we had a very strong Human Rights application. We paid a large amount of fees to two different firms and both times our applications were refused. UKIS were recommended and we arranged a consultation with Nelam who I would like to thank for her integrity. She gave us a true account of our position and explained in detail the immigration Rules and how Human Rights applications are determined, also referring to recent cases. Although it was not what we wanted to hear, I thank her for her honesty and integrity. I would recommend UKIS as they offer an honest opinion and if you do not have grounds for an application they will tell you the truth and not just take your money.

Mr Pereira

Sales Consultant, Heathrow

My wife, a Bangladeshi national, was in the UK on a Tier 4 student visa. I am a British national, we were married and wanted to switch my wife's immigration status to a spouse visa. However our case was not straightforward. We contacted UKIS having read their positive testimonials. Prior to that, we had made a number of pointless visits to solicitors who advertise in the media as experts on immigration law. It was an added bonus and convenience to learn that UKIS were very close to where we live. However even if you need to travel a long distance to consult UKIS, rest assured that you are in good hands and it is truly worth the trip.

Calling for the first time to discuss such matters is always a bit overwhelming, but Hardeep was very polite and handled my call very professionally. She took great care to listen and understand our situation. This gave me confidence to book the initial consultation. My initial consultation was with Nelam. The consultation gave us a realistic understanding and what was involved so we instructed UKIS. Within a few hours of leaving we received a detailed email from Hardeep stating what was required from us to demonstrate we met the immigration rules.

Although it was going to take us time to collate all the information/documentation, Hardeep was very helpful during the months prior to our application. She went out of her way to give us advice and guidance whenever necessary. A tight deadline amidst the delivery of various documents posed another challenge. However Hardeep did brilliantly to organise and prepare our case file in time for our premium appointment with the Home Office. The day of the appointment went very smoothly. No questions asked, just a straight approval!! Our application was processed quicker than most others in the queue before us, which we put down to Hardeep's well organised case file and a comprehensive cover letter.

Our case had elements of difficulty that were overcome with great expert advice. Overall we highly recommend using UKIS for all your immigration needs. Massive thanks again to Hardeep for your excellent efficient service.

Mr & Mrs Stephenson

Gloucester

A big thank you to Nelam and Maya for handling my second application. I first came across UKIS in 2013 when my visitor visa applications to visit my boyfriend in the UK kept being refused. UKIS then dealt with the application and the visa was granted. I finally visited my boyfriend (now husband) in January 2014. We both decided to get married in India in July of this year. We contacted UKIS again to represent us. The application was prepared in short notice and to a very high standard. We were impressed by the service and the way the application was professionally presented. My spouse visa was granted within weeks. Highly recommend UKIS for quality, responsiveness and value for money. A truly professional team! - Application type: UK Visas Application

"Gerard and Nelam were a great help to my wife and I. Very professional and a calming influence in an arduous and nervous process. I strongly recommend them."

Danni & Chris Little

Lincolnshire

My wife and I were very stressed by the complex immigration rules. We spent hours trying to make sense of all the changes and had spoken to many lawyers, who provided conflicting advice. We feared being separated. Having researched many companies, we contacted UKIS and arranged a consultation with Nelam. The consultation addressed our concerns, our options were clearly explained to us. We were impressed by the consultation and confident that UKIS were the best company to represent us. UKIS provided a very smooth application process, detailed exactly what we needed to do, and prepared an impeccable case in the cover letter and application. I was kept up to date by both Nelam and Gerard and didn’t have to chase them for information at any point. We were absolutely over the moon and incredibly excited to hear that the application had been approved and I did not have to leave the UK, and now we can get our life officially underway. We are forever grateful to Nelam and Gerard. UKIS are wonderful and we wouldn't recommend anyone else.

Jasbinder Kaur

Teacher, Oldbury

I am very glad that Nelam fought my case. UKIS were highly recommended. Despite me being diagnosed with a terminal illness the British Embassy refused my husband's application to join me in the UK. Your robust and professional approach resulted in my husband being granted a visa. I thank you for all your support and your caring approach. Thank you Nelam for listening and understanding on the occasions I was an emotional wreck. I could not have achieved this speedy result on my own. I am now enjoying every moment of life with my husband.

Mihaela & Ardian Alija

London

We were not happy with the Solicitor dealing with our case. UKIS were recommended to us, we contacted them for a consultation and without hesitation instructed UKIS to handle our case. In June 2015 we received the good news that our case had been successful. Thank you so much to Nelam, Hardeep and Gerard - you handled our case professionally and we were never left wondering what was happening, we never had to chase you. Having UKIS handle our case took away a lot of the stress we were experiencing. We can now enjoy our lives and go on holidays as a family, a luxury most people take for granted. UKIS provide a friendly professional service, they have high ethical standards and we would recommend them to anyone facing immigration problems.

Thank you !

L.K.

Retail Manager, London

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.

Paul Hyams

Winchmore Hill London

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.

Bukky and family

Portsmouth

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.

Suman & Jill

Devonshire

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!

Mr Chen

Managing Director – Surrey

I was in desperate need of legal representation. The Home Office had curtailed my elderly mother’s leave without notice and threatened removal. This was an extremely stressful time which meant if my mother was removed I too would have to leave the UK and close my well established business that employed 30 people. I am forever grateful that I came across UKIS. I contacted them on a weekend and they responded quickly. They moved fast and professionally – the matter was handled by Nelam and my mother’s leave was reinstated. I was kept informed every step of the way. I highly recommend UKIS for their level of service, knowledge and professionalism.

Assel Appleyard and Dinara Uatayeva

Surrey

After having our mother’s application for residence permit rejected, my sister and I decided to seek advice from immigration solicitors. We met Nelam and had not looked further for solicitors - we were certain that with UKIS our next application would be in good hands and we were right. Gerard was assigned to our case and our mother’s residence card was granted with no questions. His professional advice and knowledge of the immigration aspects have been outstanding.

But it is not just that, it was being always available and responsive when we were worried or had silly questions. Our mother is now a happy resident of UK and we could not have done it without UKIS. What they do is life-changing. I would recommend them to anyone and will definitely be working with them again in the future for our mother’s Indefinite Leave to Remain.

Jeanne T Day

Staines-upon-Thames

A successful outcome was achieved with my Leave to remain visa appeal tribunal from the Home Office with the excellent help of Nelam and Arifa at UKIS. They give a very professional service, and dealt with everything required for my appeal, leading to Home Office withdrawal without a full hearing. Which was a great relief. Recommended!

Batogova Family

Surrey

UK Immigration Services helped us to get our family ILR in 2017. For us it turned out to be a very long, painful and complicated process. Nelam Trewin and her team were always there with their friendly expert advice, always ready to go that extra mile. Before we finally received ILR we had passed through many stages including refusals, administrative reviews, judicial review and almost 15 months of waiting for the positive decision. We always had great support from UK Immigration Services. We’re very happy with the service we received. The entire team is very professional and experienced in complicated cases. Well done Nelam!

Mrs A. Semas

Accountant – Surrey

I highly recommend UK Immigration Services.  I contacted UK Immigration Services in July 2015 to help me get my mother a visa to live with me and my partner.  I found Nelam to be straight talking and clear about the obstacles, challenges and the chances of getting my mother through the immigration process via the Adult Dependent Relative category. She was clear on possible costs which was also an important aspect.

She and her team counselled me on how they would proceed, and what information and evidence was important or critically important to obtain for the case.  I worked with her team to gather all the documentation, based on a long list they provided to me. It was very daunting, especially as I am self-employed and so the Home Office required a lot of additional financial information. They were there to answer questions and to cross reference the information required against the checklist.

While we were waiting for an answer, Nelam checked with me periodically to see if we had heard any news, which I appreciated.  When our application was rejected, Nelam and Arifa sprung into action immediately. Nelam consulted a barrister about the reasons for rejection and our chances for winning an appeal. The advice from the barrister was insightful and somewhat optimistic. Nelam shared his advice in totality so we could assess whether we should proceed or not. She also advised on further costs to take us through the process as well as the current waiting times.  On this basis, Arifa collected the next round of documents that would be needed to support our appeal.  The appeal, refuting the key points from the Home Office rejection, was well-written, articulate considered and commanding.

Prior to our court date for the appeal, we had a briefing call. Nelam laid out what the court environment was like and what we should expect. We met our Barrister on the day of the hearing, which was the same Barrister who had provided the advice on our rejection letter. He was well-organised, he had an excellent grasp of our situation and presented himself exceptionally well to the judge.

After our hearing, Nelam followed up straight away, even though she was out of the country.  Even though our process has been very long, Nelam and her team have been there at each critical milestone; ensuring we got to the next point in the process with the best position and presentation possible. Their advice, attention to detail, organisation and, ultimately, choice of Barrister gave us the best chance to win our case in an incredibly difficult category...and we did!

Gerard - I just wanted to touch base to let you know that the Sole Representative visa was approved today. I also wanted to state that working with you and your firm has been a positive experience from start to finish. You all conduct yourselves with a high level of professionalism, and are obviously very experienced around issues of visa issuance. I am truly happy to have found your firm and to have engaged you all to help us in this matter. If I need further help in the future (which I probably will) I will not hesitate to contact you folks, and similarly if I come across anyone needing immigration advice I will most definitely send them your way.

Thanks again Gerard, and I hope that you have a great week.

Mr Khanna, Consultant

Dun and Bradstreet

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.

Paul and Eunice

Carlisle

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.

M Singh

Lakshmi Sweet Centre – Wolverhampton

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.

Ken Patterson

Maritime Engineer, Hampshire

My partner (a US citizen) was refused entry to the UK. I immediately researched on-line for solicitors and companies specializing in UK immigration law. There were several, but fortunately for us, I found UK Immigration Services and after a phone call to Nelam, I decided to take up the offer of a consultation to discuss the circumstances.

I remember deciding that I was going to appoint Nelam and her team before the consultation was even over, that's how well she presented her experiences and knowledge of such issues and dealing with the UK Home Office. Gerard Harrison was appointed to deal with our case which he did in a very professional way, always a prompt reply to any of my emails, and addressing our concerns.

He guided us through the process and paperwork, and produced documentation that contained all the relevant details which were eventually presented to the British Embassy with my partners application. My partner's settlement visa was granted on the first application, we couldn't have been happier!

The fees charged are sensible and worth it in my opinion. I would recommend UK Immigration Services to anyone who has any issues with UK Visas/Immigration issues for their partner or family.

Connie/Chris

Big, Big Thank You to Nelam and her associates for a successful visa application. UKIS methodically prepared my case and professionally "held" my hand. My husband and I can now focus on our marriage. I would highly recommend UKIS services without any reservation.

"I was having an absolute nightmare with the UKBA when dealing with my children's application and UK Citizenship. I then decided to instruct UKIS and found them to be a great committed company who will fight your corner till the end. Thank you to Nelam and her team for their robust approach in finalising matters."

Laura

Nurse at Royal Berkshire Hospital

We are an educated couple and were going round in circles trying to make sense of the law and all the changes in the immigration rules. We contacted many firms and by the end of it were more confused by the conflicting advice. This was very stressful for us. We contacted UKIS and felt comfortable talking to them. Our initial meeting was with Nelam. She advised us that our application fell under EU Law and clearly explained the requirements to us. Our application was then handled by Maya. Our dealings with UKIS have been stress free and we were constantly up-dated. Our application was professionally prepared and we received a successful outcome 4 weeks later. We are over the moon! UKIS are a professional reputable company that we would recommend.

Manjit Gill

IT Consultant, Stoke Poges

I first came across UK immigration services over 10 years ago through a recommendation from a friend, when I used their services I was very pleased with the professionalism and the expertise that they presented. I have always found the company to be punctual and accurate, they really are a leader in their field. I have recommended UK immigration services countless times and would have no hesitation in continuing to recommend them. All in all a fantastic service.

S. Kaur Gill

My friend's application was successfully handled by UKIS and she highly recommended them. I instructed them to represent me for my appeal. I was impressed by their knowledge and approach to my application and most of all the way my case was argued in court. My appeal was allowed at Taylor House. Thank you to everyone at UKIS, you have helped me through this very difficult time.

Sean Davenport

Thank you Maya and Nelam for your help and assistance in obtaining our Tier 2 Sponsorship license for our business improvement consultancy. Your service was extremely professional from start to finish and saved us a significant amount of effort in clarification and interpretation of the guidelines. Every aspect of your guidance and advice was spot on, responses to questions were immediate and as a result our application was granted within a matter of days. I highly recommend your service for its quality, responsiveness and value for money. Application Type: UK Visas Application

Mrs L Carter

Communications Manager, London

Nelam and Maya were invaluable resources throughout my application for Leave To Remain in the UK. They were both extremely patient in explaining the requirements of my application and it was evident from the start that they truly cared about whether I achieved a successful outcome. It was the personal touch I received during my initial consultation with UKIS that convinced me they were the right company to handle my case. Following considerable support and guidance from the team at UKIS, I am pleased to share that my application for Leave To Remain was approved without question. I wholeheartedly recommend UKIS to anyone looking for a competent and caring company with which to navigate the UK immigration process.

Mr Evans

Essex

I was looking for a company to represent me, had already spent a fortune and been given the run around by many solicitors. UKIS was recommended to me and I contacted them to arrange a meeting. Nelam gave me a true account of my case and advised me of my chances of success. Although I had been quoted lower fees by other firms I instructed UKIS as it was clear that they were professional and had great knowledge. I was satisfied that they would be the best to represent me. This decision turned out to be one to best decisions I made as I was granted leave to remain in the UK on 29th April 2014. Without hesitation I recommend UKIS.

Lea

Marketing Manager, London

When I first contacted UK Immigration Services I was extremely distressed. My elderly, disabled mother had been given 3 weeks to leave the country and realistically had nowhere else to go other than perhaps a nursing home on the other side of the world. I felt that the UKBA was making me choose between my mother and my family. I was facing the prospect of giving up my career to go with her leaving my husband and four children behind. Nelam was very calm and reassuring, plain speaking about our options and our chances of success. Most importantly for me she was positive. She provided us with good legal advice, laid out everything we had to provide and wrote a truly compelling accompanying letter. After a frenzy of document gathering, some of it 5,000 miles away with the help of friends, my mother made her application with 5 days to spare. Four months later we received the fantastic news that she has now been given the right to remain in the UK.

Mr T Malone

Manager, Richmond

Having spoken to many firms I am extremely glad that I instructed UKIS to handle my case. It was prepared with great attention and diligence. They updated me on the progress and were always on hand to answer my questions. The fees were reasonable, the outcome was successful and I couldn't be happier. I have already recommended UKIS and I would personally like to thank Nelam and Maya.

Ray Wolfsbauer

Drilling Superintendent, Occidental of Qatar

Nelam - thank you and your team for all the support which I found highly efficient at all times, special thanks for the professional advice on which type of service we should apply to the Home Office which allowed me to continue operating my international business and lose no time travelling to the Home Office. I recommend your immigration service to any person who has any difficulty at all with the UK Border Controls and with visa problems. I have recommended your service to various international companies. Thank you everyone.

M. Singh

Dearest Nelam - I am not able to find the words to thank you enough for your professional and dynamic approach in handling my wife and daughter's application. Your company was highly recommended to me. When I contacted you my wife and daughter's visa had expired over a year ago. I had been given conflicting advice by many firms who told me that my wife and daughter would have to leave the UK and re-apply. I was given the run around by my solicitor in Glasgow who didn't understand the case making me very stressed and confused. You dealt with the applications promptly and put forward legal arguments which resulted in my wife and daughter being granted ILR on the 21st January 2014. I have recommended your company to many people already. A big thank you !

Reanne Tan

Managing Director, Studio Oblique Ltd

Exceptional Service - a meticulous and dedicated company. Thanks to Nelam and Meryl. I highly recommend UKIS.

Mr Moosa

Businessman, Dubai

I would like to personally thank Nelam. You have been highly efficient and very prompt with your service. Before I contacted you I was advised that there was no way that the 10 year ban (320 7b) the British Embassy imposed on me could be revoked. Every application I made was automatically refused without any consideration. It was your expertise and legal submissions that got the ban revoked. I could not believe it when you told me the ban has been revoked. I was ecstatic! I can now enjoy a holiday to the UK. Thank you so much, I have already recommended your company to several people.

Mehdi

London

I instructed UKIS to handle family visitor visa applications on my behalf. The applications were professionally prepared and my Statutory Declaration was very thorough and fully documented. Their services are outstanding; every occasion I called or e-mailed them their replies were very prompt. Thanks to Nelam, Mayce and the team for all their hard work, you made it stress free. My father, sister and nephew from Iran can now visit me in the UK, this is a dream come true!

I wish to express my appreciation of the extremely efficient services provided by UK Immigration Services with a personal touch and attention to detail which is rare in today's world. All matters were clearly discussed, documentation prepared well in time and everything worked out exactly as planned and within the times frames indicated.

Karamjeet Sidhu

To everyone at UKIS thank you for your brilliant service. Nelam you have been understanding and professional at all times. Thank you for representing me at the Tribunal in Surbiton. I am overjoyed that my appeal was allowed. This has changed my life forever. UKIS are a passionate and robust company.

Suk Chahal

Accounts Manager, Wolverhampton

UKIS was highly recommended to me in 2005 by Major of Lakshmi Sweet Centre. I met Nelam and Quentin at their office in London. I was very satisfied with the advice I was given. I instructed them to represent me and my husband. Nelam represented my husband at the embassy and he was granted entry clearance on the day. UKIS is an exceptional company, passionate with a robust approach and truly care about their clients. Thank you to all of you.

Mr A Dhaliwal

Director, Windsor

A big thank you to Nelam for representing my daughter and reuniting us after 10 years. I will never forget the moment you arrived with her at Heathrow Airport. It was a very emotional time for us. She is now adapting to life in the UK and we are now able to live as a joint happy family. I can't find the words to express my gratitude. I highly recommend you and your company to anyone needing professional legal advice. May god bless you!

Mrs R Patel

A company that will give you an honest opinion, not always what you want to hear, but the truth. Thank you, I will be back once I have completed my studies.

Antony Towers

CFO, FastMarkets Ltd

I would like to thank Nelam, Meryl, Shabana and the team for the help and support they provided to us over the last few months. The process of obtaining Visas for staff is becoming increasingly more difficult and the team at UKIS helped us to meet some pretty tight deadlines. The advice they provided was clear, concise, accurate and professional, which enabled us meet those deadlines. I do not think we would have been able to achieve this if we had done it alone. With their help and guidance, our application sailed through first time, without a hitch.

K. Grewal

Customs Officer, London

Nelam - Thank you for all your support with my wife's appeal. As you know this was a very difficult time for us. You have always been extremely helpful and very understanding. Your passion and knowledge shows in the way you handle matters and especially in the way you prepared for the hearing which was allowed. We are grateful to you and your team at UKIS. We can now continue enjoying our family life. Thanks again!

Mr Sadhra

Dillons of London, Southall

UK Immigration Services was recommended to me by a friend. I contacted them regarding a Student Visa for my niece. Their advice was clear throughout, they handled the case professionally, they were pleasant and helpful whenever I called and kept me up-dated, having used other firms in the past, I found UK Immigration Services to be cost effective. The case was successful and my niece got her visa. A warm thanks to Nelam and Quentin.

J Kaur

Director, MBE Installations, Slough

We have used UK Immigration Services to ensure our staff are compliant with the Immigration Rules. We have been satisfied with their services and rates.

Mr R Sharma

Estate Agent, Coventry

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both so much for all your professional help. Nelam, as you know, my elderly parents were very nervous when they attending the British High Commission but having you represent them made it much easier. I dread to think how they would have been able to cope with this alone. My parents are now in the UK. We will never forget your professionalism, kindness and wonderful personality. We wish you all the best.

Mr Malik

Sheldon, West Midlands

A heart felt thanks to Quentin and Nelam who have provided professional services from day one. What a long haul, but we got there in the end!

Mr R Rai

Director, Surrey

I first instructed UKIS to handle applications for my relatives in 1999. I was extremely impressed by Quentin and Nelam. Since then I have referred many clients to UKIS. They have always been satisfied. Nelam and Quentin offer an outstanding service to their clients. They have represented many clients overseas who had been refused visas several times. UKIS are a committed, professional, hardworking and robust company.

Brenda Lefebvre

Cavendish House Dental Practice , London

Your company was a god send for me. Previously, I had seen 3 Solicitors and it was only your consultants who had the knowledge and imagination to suggest other options. I truly appreciate the efficiency, friendliness, and thoughtfulness, a big thank you!

Mr Sandhu

Surrey

This card does not begin to show my gratitude to your organisation, you are more than a law firm. I can now continue with my business stress free. Thank you Nelam.

Mr G Gill

Your advice was clear and consistent throughout. The most important thing for me was fees and I was glad you dealt with my case on a fixed fee basis. Thank you Nelam I will always remember the day you called to tell me my wife's appeal had been allowed.

Mr Ismail

Preston

Your level of services was second to none, thank you for handling my mother's case. I have highly recommended your firm.

Mr & Mrs Zeeshan

UKIS have been great in helping us for our Immigration matter, we received clear and satisfying advice. A HUGE thanks to Nelam and her team, especially Arifa for professionally dealing with our case. Highly recommend UKIS for all Immigration matters. An exceptionally experienced and reliable firm.

Mr Singh and Mrs Kaur

Bristol

My wife and I are British. We spent 12 years fighting to bring our daughter to the UK, not to mention the money and stress.  We had been given the run around and bad advice by many companies, every application had been refused and court appeals refused. In 2014, we approached UKIS.  We first spoke to Nelam Trewin by phone, and arranged an urgent meeting with her. We discussed the background of our case, which was extremely complicated, the pain we had endured was evident from our face and voice.

The meeting was long, I recall Nelam saying it was one of the most complex and sad cases she had heard.  To cut a long story short – my wife and I, after trying for a child for 15 years travelled abroad for IVF treatment, the treatment was successful, and we had a beautiful daughter.  However, shortly after the birth we undertook a DNA test so that we could bring our daughter home, to our utter disbelief the DNA results confirmed we were not the biological parents – that’s when our nightmare began.  There were further DNA tests, repeated applications, court hearings but still our daughter was not able to join us.  It transpired there had been a mix up with the IVF, trying to hold anyone responsible for this was a task in itself, the doctors vanished and clinics closed, we could not trace anyone to hold accountable.

We felt comfortable with Nelam and felt that she and her team would be able to help us, she had a great deal of experience representing complex cases in India so was familiar with the system.  Nelam discussed options, the de-facto visa, adoption, Article 8m and various case law etc. and clearly explained that we should prepare ourselves for a battle, as it was going to be a tough lengthy process.  It was made clear that the application would be refused and the only chance we had would be before a judge. We instructed UKIS to handle the application, the application took time to prepare and I was impressed by the way the application was prepared, UKIS were very thorough, they prepared a comprehensive application.

As we expected the application was refused in 2015.  UKIS lodged an appeal and the appeal was heard in 2016 before 2 senior judges, the appeal went on for most of the day.  To our joy the appeal was allowed. My wife and I were overwhelmed when Nelam told us that our daughter will finally be joining us, but also said there was a chance the Home Office would appeal.  Shockingly, the Home Office did appeal, but were refused permission.

Our daughter finally joined us in the UK in October 2017.  We all visited Nelam and her team in 2018. We are forever indebted to Nelam and her team, they have made our dream into reality, they fought our case with passion and professionalism.  Nelam always responded to my emails promptly, even late evenings and weekends.  The service we received from UKIS is priceless, we would have never been able to achieve this without them and I cannot recommend them enough!

Mr Malik

Ms Surinder Dhaliwal

Just to say thank you for your help, a pleasant, helpful and professional firm and what makes all the difference is that it shows how much you care about your clients, a special thank you to Nelam.

Mr S Uslay

Director Pozitron Ltd, IT Manager in a global insurance company

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. and Mrs

Hudson, Surrey

After having a visa application rejected due to inaccurate legal advice from another firm, my husband and I were cautious about choosing a lawyer to work with. We spoke to a number of other lawyers, none of whom impressed us quite like Nelam did. From our initial meeting and all throughout the process, she provided the most clear and practical advice and instruction.

Nelam and Gerard were both excellent at answering questions clearly and demystifying the rules and requirements of our visa. They both fielded a number of anxious emails from me, and dealt with my concerns in a professional and kind manner. Thanks to UKIS, my application was very thorough and professionally presented, and it was accepted within 24 hours of being received by the Home Office, in spite of the previous refusal.

Working with Nelam and Gerard made an otherwise scary and overwhelming visa process manageable and straightforward. I would absolutely recommend UKIS, and I fully intend to return to them for future visa and Indefinite Leave to Remain needs.

Lee Alaba

Property Consultant, London

UKIS helped me and my wife in obtaining her visa. Right from the very beginning of the process they were there for us every step of the way. I am so pleased that I decided to instruct them. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services to anyone who needs the assistance of an immigration lawyer. Great company, great people and above all great service!

Dr T Agarwal

London

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.

Mr Hundal

IT – London

UKIS was recommended to me. Throughout my dealings with UK Immigration Services I have found them to be highly experienced and efficient. We were kept up-to date and had no need to chase them on the progress of our case. They handled a complex application on our behalf and we received a successful outcome in July 2017 – we are delighted with the outcome and highly recommend UKIS.

Craig and May Jane

Oldbury

My girlfriend at the time, May Jane from the Philippines, was refused a visitor visa to the UK. It was sensible for us to spend time together and for May Jane to meet my family before who took our relationship to the next level, however the UK authorities didn't think this was a valid reason to issue a visa. We were very upset by the reasons for refusal. I contacted UKIS and a consultation was arranged with Nelam. I learnt a great deal about the immigration rules that I wasn't aware of, about why our application, which had been without legal representation, was refused. I was advised about the options on UK Visas Application open to me, the process and time frames. I was impressed by the way the consultation was conducted and instructed UKIS to handle the case.

Today, I'm the happiest man on the planet. May Jane and I have been living together in the UK for the past 2 months. We are married and have a baby on the way. We both owe much of our happiness to Nelam and Hardeep who worked extremely hard and meticulously against deadlines to make sure our application was successful so that May Jane and I could be together and start the next chapter of our lives as a family.

I knew instantly that UKIS was the best firm to handle our case, not only for their professionalism and obvious expertise in the field but also for their passionate and caring approach. I was made to feel like I was their only client, which of course I wasn't. Their professional and caring approach continued throughout our dealings.

I highly recommend UKIS. Thank you so much for being there for us."

Mr & Mrs Beshi

Surrey

My wife and I endured a long separation as a result of the complex immigration rules. We did not want to take any risks when choosing a company to represent us. We spoke to many companies and were very confused on who to instruct. We spoke to UKIS, they were one of the very few that we were impressed with. We instructed them and have been totally satisfied with the service, the application was prepared meticulously and the outcome was successful. UKIS are efficient, professional and maintain a high standard of service. Highly recommended! Thank you to ALL of you!

Desmond Sopp

Retired Lawyer, Ascot

"UKIS were thorough and professional in preparing an application for a spouse visa to be submitted in the event of my fiancée and I marrying overseas. They were friendly, worked quickly and made themselves readily available to deal with matters on the telephone."

Barry & Jodi Gleed

Portsmouth, UK

My wife (a US citizen) and I may not be in as traumatic and intimidating a situation as others, but we were in desperate need of clarification and expert knowledge. We got that, and we also got a lot more. Nelam and her associates are the best legal team I have ever encountered. Wonderfully professional, considerate and friendly, and above all, Nelam really is an expert on her subject. This is not a firm intent on milking money, not intent on jargon and hyperbole. The intent here is clearly to provide real help, real information, real fairness. I can't recommend enough.

M. Dehning

Ski Instructor, UK

I would like to thank Nelam and Gerard for their hard work and support. My application was prepared professionally and with dedication. I was against a deadline and the way they handled my case was brilliant. The outcome was successful. I am now in the UK enjoying life with my partner. Before instructing UKIS I had spoken to many firms who gave conflicting advice and quoted fees from extremely low to painfully extortionate. UKIS stood out, they came across as professional and their fees were reasonable. I am very glad I chose UKIS. I highly recommend them for their excellent service.

Mr Babu

IT Consultant, Berkshire

I was looking for a company to represent me. I read the reviews about UKIS and after speaking to them I instructed. My experience with UKIS was superb and exceeded my expectations of any law firm. The case was handled by Nelam and Maya. I was kept up to date with the progress and they were always prompt replying to any questions I had. They were professional at all times and prepared the application to a very high standard. As a result my father was granted a dependent visa. I am delighted with the outcome. UKIS offer an exceptional service and I highly recommend them.

Erika and Pe

OlofUppeke

Nelam and her Associates have given us very valuable and comprehensive information on how to obtain a UK residence card for a US citizen married to a European national. Their assistance in preparing the application was very professional, they were easy to reach throughout the process always with a quick response. Now I have the card and I am very pleased with UKIS and their work.

We are ever so thankful to find such excellent service by friendly and caring people.

Mr F Osbourne

Electrician, London

I write this testimonial with great pleasure. When I first contacted UKIS I spoke to Nelam and told her that my application had been pending with the UKBA for almost 10 years and despite paying a huge amount of fees to solicitors to handle my case I was not getting anywhere. She said she could not accurately advise on the phone and suggested a meeting. At the meeting I was impressed by her knowledge as she explained how my case would be handled in great detail and the relevant law. I instructed UKIS to take on my case and this was one of the best decisions I have made. I was granted Indefinite Leave to Remain on the 07 April 2014. I would without hesitation highly recommend UKIS, it was their knowledge and robust approach that resulted in the successful outcome of my application. I would like to thank Hardeep for keeping me updated and Nelam for handling my case. UKIS is definitely the one to choose for a comprehensive service. I just wish I had known about them earlier, it would have saved me a great deal of money and stress.

C. Onsembe

Pharmacist, Norwich

I would like to thank Nelam and her team at UKIS for the efficient manner in which my application was handled. My experience with your company has been perfect. The application was meticulously prepared with a very comprehensive cover letter. You made the whole process stress free, I was updated throughout the process and didn't need to chase you at all. Your company is definitely different offering a friendly, reliable and fast service. For a more personal service UKIS is the one to choose!

L. Zegers

Febres, Management Consultant, Devon

I applied for residence in the UK as my wife is a British subject and we had been living in Switzerland for over 30 years. UKIS gave us all the advice and guidance we needed ensuring that the application procedures were followed exactly according to requirements. The UKIS team worked diligently, efficiently and effectively. I now hold a Residence Card. Congratulations and many, many thanks.

Cristian & Sarah

Private Teacher, Teddington

Dear Nelam and Team - We would like to sincerely thank you for your professional approach towards our case. It was a difficult time and you kept us informed of all the options and proceedings. We were never left wondering what was going on because you and your team had a great disposition to answer all our questions and arrange meetings when needed. I now have Leave to Remain in the UK and can enjoy family life with my wife and son. We contacted a few people before but your friendly, great communication, honest approach and affordable fees made us go in the right direction. We will definitely continue with your services when time comes to renew my permit. I would highly recommend Nelam and UK immigration services.

V. Sharma

Mumbai

I had previously studied in the UK and returned home at the end of my studies. I made an application to return to the UK as a visitor and the application was refused by the British Embassy in Mumbai. I was shocked as my application had been carefully prepared. The reasons for refusal were unjustified and harsh. I instructed UKIS who challenged the refusal and although it was after a huge battle, I am glad to say it was overturned and I travelled to the UK on the 8th January 2014. Thank you to Nelam, Meryl and the team at UKIS. I could not have succeeded alone. I would absolutely recommend UKIS.

Surjit Singh

Wolverhampton

My wife's application was refused by the British High Commission New Delhi. My friend highly recommended UKIS to me. I was reluctant as I live in Wolverhampton and they were based in London. I called their office and spoke to Nelam, I was satisfied and impressed as she had a very clear understanding of the Immigration Rules and her advice was clear. I arranged a meeting and UKIS lodged an appeal on behalf of my wife. On the 29 November 2013 I attended a hearing at Taylor House London. The Immigration Judge allowed my appeal on the day. I can't thank Nelam and her team at UKIS enough. From start to finish my case was handled with complete professionalism and enthusiasm. I have been impressed with the level of service and preparation of the case. UKIS certainly lived up to its reputation.

Sandeep Singh

London

My wife's spouse visa had been refused 3 times by the British High Commission New Delhi. This was a complete nightmare for us, we had instructed many firms. In 2003 UKIS was introduced to me. I met Nelam and Quentin and explained the background. They prepared a fresh application and Nelam attended the interview with my wife at the British High Commission New Delhi. My wife's visa was finally granted! I strongly believe that it was the way the case was meticulously prepared by UKIS and their legal knowledge that secured my wife's visa. I can't thank you enough!

H Kaur

I contacted UK Immigration Services as they were highly recommended. I had travelled to the UK on the basis of my marriage. My husband was emotionally and physically abusive. I didn't have anyone to turn to and did not know the UK system. From my first meeting with Nelam, I knew I was in good hands. Your company helped me tremendously, with the evidence and your hard work my case was successful. Thank you Nelam you really helped me at an extremely difficult time you gave me confidence, thank you Quentin for all your help. You are caring and trusting people.

Ms A Munemo

Barclays Wealth and Investment Banking

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.

Raj Banga

Nelam and her team at UKIS are thoroughly professional, friendly and efficient, producing great results. They have invariably delivered what was promised without fuss and delay not only for us but also for our clients who have all spoken very highly of them. Hugely recommended!

John Doe

Codetic

We had already made an application for my wife for spouse entry clearance.  Unfortunately through misleading instructions on the website, our application was refused as we had not presented our evidence in the correct way.  We had two options, appeal which could take up to two years or seek professional advice.  After much research, we were directed towards Nelam Trewin and her company of specialists at UK Immigration Services.  We were advised to make a fresh application from the USA.  Gerard Harrison, one of the consultants at UK Immigration Services, handled our case. He personally guided us through the labyrinth of data that we needed to collect. Often it was difficult for us but Gerard remained professional and very helpful in guiding us through the mine field.  I am delighted to say my wife now has her visa and we are together in the UK.   We know that we would not have succeeded without their expertise and we cannot recommend them to you more highly.  They will not let you down.

Mrs A. Semas

Accountant – Surrey

I highly recommend UK Immigration Services.  I contacted UK Immigration Services in July 2015 to help me get my mother a visa to live with me and my partner.  I found Nelam to be straight talking and clear about the obstacles, challenges and the chances of getting my mother through the immigration process via the Adult Dependent Relative category. She was clear on possible costs which was also an important aspect.

She and her team counselled me on how they would proceed, and what information and evidence was important or critically important to obtain for the case.  I worked with her team to gather all the documentation, based on a long list they provided to me. It was very daunting, especially as I am self-employed and so the Home Office required a lot of additional financial information. They were there to answer questions and to cross reference the information required against the checklist.

While we were waiting for an answer, Nelam checked with me periodically to see if we had heard any news, which I appreciated.  When our application was rejected, Nelam and Arifa sprung into action immediately. Nelam consulted a barrister about the reasons for rejection and our chances for winning an appeal. The advice from the barrister was insightful and somewhat optimistic. Nelam shared his advice in totality so we could assess whether we should proceed or not. She also advised on further costs to take us through the process as well as the current waiting times.  On this basis, Arifa collected the next round of documents that would be needed to support our appeal.  The appeal, refuting the key points from the Home Office rejection, was well-written, articulate considered and commanding.

Prior to our court date for the appeal, we had a briefing call. Nelam laid out what the court environment was like and what we should expect. We met our Barrister on the day of the hearing, which was the same Barrister who had provided the advice on our rejection letter. He was well-organised, he had an excellent grasp of our situation and presented himself exceptionally well to the judge.

After our hearing, Nelam followed up straight away, even though she was out of the country.  Even though our process has been very long, Nelam and her team have been there at each critical milestone; ensuring we got to the next point in the process with the best position and presentation possible. Their advice, attention to detail, organisation and, ultimately, choice of Barrister gave us the best chance to win our case in an incredibly difficult category...and we did!

Nick Blonski

MD - USA

Gerard - I just wanted to touch base to let you know that the Sole Representative visa was approved today. I also wanted to state that working with you and your firm has been a positive experience from start to finish. You all conduct yourselves with a high level of professionalism, and are obviously very experienced around issues of visa issuance. I am truly happy to have found your firm and to have engaged you all to help us in this matter. If I need further help in the future (which I probably will) I will not hesitate to contact you folks, and similarly if I come across anyone needing immigration advice I will most definitely send them your way.

Thanks again Gerard, and I hope that you have a great week.

Mr Khanna, Consultant

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.

Paul and Eunice

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.

M Singh

Lakshmi Sweet Centre – Wolverhampton

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.

Ken Patterson

Maritime Engineer, Hampshire

My partner (a US citizen) was refused entry to the UK. I immediately researched on-line for solicitors and companies specializing in UK immigration law. There were several, but fortunately for us, I found UK Immigration Services and after a phone call to Nelam, I decided to take up the offer of a consultation to discuss the circumstances.

I remember deciding that I was going to appoint Nelam and her team before the consultation was even over, that's how well she presented her experiences and knowledge of such issues and dealing with the UK Home Office. Gerard Harrison was appointed to deal with our case which he did in a very professional way, always a prompt reply to any of my emails, and addressing our concerns.

He guided us through the process and paperwork, and produced documentation that contained all the relevant details which were eventually presented to the British Embassy with my partners application. My partner's settlement visa was granted on the first application, we couldn't have been happier!

The fees charged are sensible and worth it in my opinion. I would recommend UK Immigration Services to anyone who has any issues with UK Visas/Immigration issues for their partner or family.

Lucia Hoxha

Yoga Teacher, Well-Being Coach, NLP Practitioner Member of Global Institute for Extraordinary Women

I would like to acknowledge the exceptional work of Nelam Trewin who has supported us throughout the whole journey all the way to successful completion of our settlement visa application. Nelam's support provided us with peace of mind as she truly cares about her clients. For Nelam, what she does every day for people is more than 'just a job'. She is making a big difference in people's lives at the most challenging periods and I am forever grateful for my friend's recommendation to use her services.

UK Immigration Services was recommended to me by a retired Entry Clearance Officer, that was in 2003. Since then I have used their services to help many of my students who had fairly complex cases. Their advice has always been honest and their services professional with realistic fees. In particular I would like to express my gratitude to Nelam and Quentin who have worked extremely hard and travelled abroad on numerous occasions to represent my students.

Big, Big Thank You to Nelam and her associates for a successful visa application. UKIS methodically prepared my case and professionally "held" my hand. My husband and I can now focus on our marriage. I would highly recommend UKIS services without any reservation.

"I was having an absolute nightmare with the UKBA when dealing with my children's application and UK Citizenship. I then decided to instruct UKIS and found them to be a great committed company who will fight your corner till the end. Thank you to Nelam and her team for their robust approach in finalising matters."

Laura

Nurse at Royal Berkshire Hospital

We are an educated couple and were going round in circles trying to make sense of the law and all the changes in the immigration rules. We contacted many firms and by the end of it were more confused by the conflicting advice. This was very stressful for us. We contacted UKIS and felt comfortable talking to them. Our initial meeting was with Nelam. She advised us that our application fell under EU Law and clearly explained the requirements to us. Our application was then handled by Maya. Our dealings with UKIS have been stress free and we were constantly up-dated. Our application was professionally prepared and we received a successful outcome 4 weeks later. We are over the moon! UKIS are a professional reputable company that we would recommend.

Manjit Gill

IT Consultant, Stoke Poges

I first came across UK immigration services over 10 years ago through a recommendation from a friend, when I used their services I was very pleased with the professionalism and the expertise that they presented. I have always found the company to be punctual and accurate, they really are a leader in their field. I have recommended UK immigration services countless times and would have no hesitation in continuing to recommend them. All in all a fantastic service.

S. Kaur Gill

London

My friend's application was successfully handled by UKIS and she highly recommended them. I instructed them to represent me for my appeal. I was impressed by their knowledge and approach to my application and most of all the way my case was argued in court. My appeal was allowed at Taylor House. Thank you to everyone at UKIS, you have helped me through this very difficult time.

Sean Davenport

MD ProSight Limited

Thank you Maya and Nelam for your help and assistance in obtaining our Tier 2 Sponsorship license for our business improvement consultancy. Your service was extremely professional from start to finish and saved us a significant amount of effort in clarification and interpretation of the guidelines. Every aspect of your guidance and advice was spot on, responses to questions were immediate and as a result our application was granted within a matter of days. I highly recommend your service for its quality, responsiveness and value for money. Application Type: UK Visas Application

Mrs L Carter

Communications Manager, London

Nelam and Maya were invaluable resources throughout my application for Leave To Remain in the UK. They were both extremely patient in explaining the requirements of my application and it was evident from the start that they truly cared about whether I achieved a successful outcome. It was the personal touch I received during my initial consultation with UKIS that convinced me they were the right company to handle my case. Following considerable support and guidance from the team at UKIS, I am pleased to share that my application for Leave To Remain was approved without question. I wholeheartedly recommend UKIS to anyone looking for a competent and caring company with which to navigate the UK immigration process.

Mr Evans

Essex

I was looking for a company to represent me, had already spent a fortune and been given the run around by many solicitors. UKIS was recommended to me and I contacted them to arrange a meeting. Nelam gave me a true account of my case and advised me of my chances of success. Although I had been quoted lower fees by other firms I instructed UKIS as it was clear that they were professional and had great knowledge. I was satisfied that they would be the best to represent me. This decision turned out to be one to best decisions I made as I was granted leave to remain in the UK on 29th April 2014. Without hesitation I recommend UKIS.

Lea

Marketing Manager, London

When I first contacted UK Immigration Services I was extremely distressed. My elderly, disabled mother had been given 3 weeks to leave the country and realistically had nowhere else to go other than perhaps a nursing home on the other side of the world. I felt that the UKBA was making me choose between my mother and my family. I was facing the prospect of giving up my career to go with her leaving my husband and four children behind. Nelam was very calm and reassuring, plain speaking about our options and our chances of success. Most importantly for me she was positive. She provided us with good legal advice, laid out everything we had to provide and wrote a truly compelling accompanying letter. After a frenzy of document gathering, some of it 5,000 miles away with the help of friends, my mother made her application with 5 days to spare. Four months later we received the fantastic news that she has now been given the right to remain in the UK.

Mr T Malone

Manager, Richmond

Having spoken to many firms I am extremely glad that I instructed UKIS to handle my case. It was prepared with great attention and diligence. They updated me on the progress and were always on hand to answer my questions. The fees were reasonable, the outcome was successful and I couldn't be happier. I have already recommended UKIS and I would personally like to thank Nelam and Maya.

Ray Wolfsbauer

Drilling Superintendent, Occidental of Qatar

Nelam - thank you and your team for all the support which I found highly efficient at all times, special thanks for the professional advice on which type of service we should apply to the Home Office which allowed me to continue operating my international business and lose no time travelling to the Home Office. I recommend your immigration service to any person who has any difficulty at all with the UK Border Controls and with visa problems. I have recommended your service to various international companies. Thank you everyone.

M. Singh

Glasgow

Dearest Nelam - I am not able to find the words to thank you enough for your professional and dynamic approach in handling my wife and daughter's application. Your company was highly recommended to me. When I contacted you my wife and daughter's visa had expired over a year ago. I had been given conflicting advice by many firms who told me that my wife and daughter would have to leave the UK and re-apply. I was given the run around by my solicitor in Glasgow who didn't understand the case making me very stressed and confused. You dealt with the applications promptly and put forward legal arguments which resulted in my wife and daughter being granted ILR on the 21st January 2014. I have recommended your company to many people already. A big thank you !

Reanne Tan

Managing Director, Studio Oblique Ltd

Exceptional Service - a meticulous and dedicated company. Thanks to Nelam and Meryl. I highly recommend UKIS.

Mr Moosa

Businessman, Dubai

I would like to personally thank Nelam. You have been highly efficient and very prompt with your service. Before I contacted you I was advised that there was no way that the 10 year ban (320 7b) the British Embassy imposed on me could be revoked. Every application I made was automatically refused without any consideration. It was your expertise and legal submissions that got the ban revoked. I could not believe it when you told me the ban has been revoked. I was ecstatic! I can now enjoy a holiday to the UK. Thank you so much, I have already recommended your company to several people.

LPCL Mahajan

Household Cavalry Regiment Windsor

I contacted UKIS in relation to an application for my family members. From the very first moment I contacted UKIS I was very impressed, the case was fairly complex. Their advice was very clear and they gave me a true account of my options. I would like to thank Nelam who was very prompt in answering my questions. Thank you for listening to me and for the way you prepared the case which resulted in a successful outcome. UKIS are truly dedicated and professional. I would definitely recommend them!

Mehdi

London

I instructed UKIS to handle family visitor visa applications on my behalf. The applications were professionally prepared and my Statutory Declaration was very thorough and fully documented. Their services are outstanding; every occasion I called or e-mailed them their replies were very prompt. Thanks to Nelam, Mayce and the team for all their hard work, you made it stress free. My father, sister and nephew from Iran can now visit me in the UK, this is a dream come true!

Mrs Virdi

Newham Council

I have used the services of UK Immigration Services and have recommended them to many of my friends and family. We have all been satisfied with their services. They provide honest advice, a truly professional company and very efficient.

Thank you to Nelam, Quentin and the team for all your hard work over the years. An honest professional firm you can rely on at very short notice. We will without hesitation recommend your firm.

Durga Joshi

I wish to express my appreciation of the extremely efficient services provided by UK Immigration Services with a personal touch and attention to detail which is rare in today's world. All matters were clearly discussed, documentation prepared well in time and everything worked out exactly as planned and within the times frames indicated.

Karamjeet Sidhu

To everyone at UKIS thank you for your brilliant service. Nelam you have been understanding and professional at all times. Thank you for representing me at the Tribunal in Surbiton. I am overjoyed that my appeal was allowed. This has changed my life forever. UKIS are a passionate and robust company.

Suk Chahal

Accounts Manager, Wolverhampton

UKIS was highly recommended to me in 2005 by Major of Lakshmi Sweet Centre. I met Nelam and Quentin at their office in London. I was very satisfied with the advice I was given. I instructed them to represent me and my husband. Nelam represented my husband at the embassy and he was granted entry clearance on the day. UKIS is an exceptional company, passionate with a robust approach and truly care about their clients. Thank you to all of you.

Mr A Dhaliwal

Director, Windsor

A big thank you to Nelam for representing my daughter and reuniting us after 10 years. I will never forget the moment you arrived with her at Heathrow Airport. It was a very emotional time for us. She is now adapting to life in the UK and we are now able to live as a joint happy family. I can't find the words to express my gratitude. I highly recommend you and your company to anyone needing professional legal advice. May god bless you!

Mrs R Patel

Thank you for the outstanding work. An efficient, professional and honest firm. The success of my application for indefinite leave to remain was down to your dedication and perseverance.

Miss Kaur

A company that will give you an honest opinion, not always what you want to hear, but the truth. Thank you, I will be back once I have completed my studies.

Mr Sandhu

This card does not begin to show my gratitude to your organisation, you are more than a law firm. I can now continue with my business stress free. Thank you Nelam.

Paul Turner

Barrister, Mansfield Chambers

The OISC allows different levels of qualification to be acquired and I have been struck by the quality and professionalism shown by some firms. Indeed one firm I rate highly is United Kingdom Immigration Services (“UKIS”) based in West London and headed up by the excellent Nelam Trewin. I have had a number of referrals and instructions from them and have found them to be the equal of and indeed better than a great number of immigration solicitors.

Batogova Family

Surrey

UK Immigration Services helped us to get our family ILR in 2017. For us it turned out to be a very long, painful and complicated process. Nelam Trewin and her team were always there with their friendly expert advice, always ready to go that extra mile. Before we finally received ILR we had passed through many stages including refusals, administrative reviews, judicial review and almost 15 months of waiting for the positive decision. We always had great support from UK Immigration Services. We’re very happy with the service we received. The entire team is very professional and experienced in complicated cases. Well done Nelam!

Jeanne T Day

Staines-upon-Thames

A successful outcome was achieved with my Leave to remain visa appeal tribunal from the Home Office with the excellent help of Nelam and Arifa at UKIS. They give a very professional service, and dealt with everything required for my appeal, leading to Home Office withdrawal without a full hearing. Which was a great relief. Recommended!

Assel Appleyard and Dinara Uatayeva

Surrey

After having our mother’s application for residence permit rejected, my sister and I decided to seek advice from immigration solicitors. We met Nelam and had not looked further for solicitors - we were certain that with UKIS our next application would be in good hands and we were right. Gerard was assigned to our case and our mother’s residence card was granted with no questions. His professional advice and knowledge of the immigration aspects have been outstanding.

But it is not just that, it was being always available and responsive when we were worried or had silly questions. Our mother is now a happy resident of UK and we could not have done it without UKIS. What they do is life-changing. I would recommend them to anyone and will definitely be working with them again in the future for our mother’s Indefinite Leave to Remain.

Mr Chen

Managing Director – Surrey

I was in desperate need of legal representation. The Home Office had curtailed my elderly mother’s leave without notice and threatened removal. This was an extremely stressful time which meant if my mother was removed I too would have to leave the UK and close my well established business that employed 30 people. I am forever grateful that I came across UKIS. I contacted them on a weekend and they responded quickly. They moved fast and professionally – the matter was handled by Nelam and my mother’s leave was reinstated. I was kept informed every step of the way. I highly recommend UKIS for their level of service, knowledge and professionalism.

Suman & Jill

Devonshire

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!

Bukky and family

Portsmouth

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.

Paul Hyams

Winchmore Hill London

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.

L.K.

Retail Manager, London

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.

Mihaela & Ardian Alija

London

We were not happy with the Solicitor dealing with our case. UKIS were recommended to us, we contacted them for a consultation and without hesitation instructed UKIS to handle our case. In June 2015 we received the good news that our case had been successful. Thank you so much to Nelam, Hardeep and Gerard - you handled our case professionally and we were never left wondering what was happening, we never had to chase you. Having UKIS handle our case took away a lot of the stress we were experiencing. We can now enjoy our lives and go on holidays as a family, a luxury most people take for granted. UKIS provide a friendly professional service, they have high ethical standards and we would recommend them to anyone facing immigration problems.

Thank you !

Jasbinder Kaur

Teacher, Oldbury

I am very glad that Nelam fought my case. UKIS were highly recommended. Despite me being diagnosed with a terminal illness the British Embassy refused my husband's application to join me in the UK. Your robust and professional approach resulted in my husband being granted a visa. I thank you for all your support and your caring approach. Thank you Nelam for listening and understanding on the occasions I was an emotional wreck. I could not have achieved this speedy result on my own. I am now enjoying every moment of life with my husband.

Danni & Chris Little

Lincolnshire

My wife and I were very stressed by the complex immigration rules. We spent hours trying to make sense of all the changes and had spoken to many lawyers, who provided conflicting advice. We feared being separated. Having researched many companies, we contacted UKIS and arranged a consultation with Nelam. The consultation addressed our concerns, our options were clearly explained to us. We were impressed by the consultation and confident that UKIS were the best company to represent us. UKIS provided a very smooth application process, detailed exactly what we needed to do, and prepared an impeccable case in the cover letter and application. I was kept up to date by both Nelam and Gerard and didn’t have to chase them for information at any point. We were absolutely over the moon and incredibly excited to hear that the application had been approved and I did not have to leave the UK, and now we can get our life officially underway. We are forever grateful to Nelam and Gerard. UKIS are wonderful and we wouldn't recommend anyone else.

Mark Scully

City Broker, New Yor

"Gerard and Nelam were a great help to my wife and I. Very professional and a calming influence in an arduous and nervous process. I strongly recommend them."

Mr & Mrs Stephenson

Gloucester

A big thank you to Nelam and Maya for handling my second application. I first came across UKIS in 2013 when my visitor visa applications to visit my boyfriend in the UK kept being refused. UKIS then dealt with the application and the visa was granted. I finally visited my boyfriend (now husband) in January 2014. We both decided to get married in India in July of this year. We contacted UKIS again to represent us. The application was prepared in short notice and to a very high standard. We were impressed by the service and the way the application was professionally presented. My spouse visa was granted within weeks. Highly recommend UKIS for quality, responsiveness and value for money. A truly professional team! - Application type: UK Visas Application

Mr & Mrs Stephenson

Gloucester

My wife, a Bangladeshi national, was in the UK on a Tier 4 student visa. I am a British national, we were married and wanted to switch my wife's immigration status to a spouse visa. However our case was not straightforward. We contacted UKIS having read their positive testimonials. Prior to that, we had made a number of pointless visits to solicitors who advertise in the media as experts on immigration law. It was an added bonus and convenience to learn that UKIS were very close to where we live. However even if you need to travel a long distance to consult UKIS, rest assured that you are in good hands and it is truly worth the trip.

Calling for the first time to discuss such matters is always a bit overwhelming, but Hardeep was very polite and handled my call very professionally. She took great care to listen and understand our situation. This gave me confidence to book the initial consultation. My initial consultation was with Nelam. The consultation gave us a realistic understanding and what was involved so we instructed UKIS. Within a few hours of leaving we received a detailed email from Hardeep stating what was required from us to demonstrate we met the immigration rules.

Although it was going to take us time to collate all the information/documentation, Hardeep was very helpful during the months prior to our application. She went out of her way to give us advice and guidance whenever necessary. A tight deadline amidst the delivery of various documents posed another challenge. However Hardeep did brilliantly to organise and prepare our case file in time for our premium appointment with the Home Office. The day of the appointment went very smoothly. No questions asked, just a straight approval!! Our application was processed quicker than most others in the queue before us, which we put down to Hardeep's well organised case file and a comprehensive cover letter.

Our case had elements of difficulty that were overcome with great expert advice. Overall we highly recommend using UKIS for all your immigration needs. Massive thanks again to Hardeep for your excellent efficient service.

Mr & Mrs Singh

Ilford

My wife and I had overstayed our visitor visas in the UK by a few years. We went to various solicitors and were advised we had a very strong Human Rights application. We paid a large amount of fees to two different firms and both times our applications were refused. UKIS were recommended and we arranged a consultation with Nelam who I would like to thank for her integrity. She gave us a true account of our position and explained in detail the immigration Rules and how Human Rights applications are determined, also referring to recent cases. Although it was not what we wanted to hear, I thank her for her honesty and integrity. I would recommend UKIS as they offer an honest opinion and if you do not have grounds for an application they will tell you the truth and not just take your money.

Mr Gabriel

Events Manager, UK

Now we have arrived in the UK and are about start our new life I wanted to take a moment to thank Nelam and Gerard for your support in applying for the visa for my wife. I can honestly say that right from the outset I knew I had made the right choice in appointing you for the Visa application. Even though we were in Vietnam and you were in the UK that was no hurdle in the way you supported us. The clear and precise explanation of the steps and how to achieve them was more than reassuring. Throughout the difficult process you were always available to assist and explain. Your support and experience made me feel that we were always going to be successful with our application which proved to be case. I would like to add that this was the first successful application from Vietnam for almost a year and was issued in record time of 40 days from submitting the application!!!!. Well done and thanks again to you both. From our experience I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs this service.

Mr Gholamreza

London

My daughter's application to enter the UK was refused and the Embassy informed me that they would be imposing a 10 year ban on all future applications. I instructed UKIS to deal with the case and although it was tough, thanks to their preparation and legal arguments the appeal was allowed. I want to say that I was impressed with the way the appeal was prepared and represented at the hearing. A heartfelt thanks to everyone at UKIS. I would especially recommend UKIS to anyone who needs to appeal or for any immigration matter.

Mr Ghassan

Consultant, Dubai

I had been refused a Visitor Visa on 3 occasions, no matter what I did the UK Embassy kept on refusing despite me being well travelled and stable. I was very stressed, I called many companies and was given conflicting advice, the fees ranged from very low to ridiculously high. When I contacted UKIS their fee was reasonable for the service they offered and I felt comfortable with their advice. I instructed them and am pleased I made that choice. They prepared my application methodically, their cover letter was impressive and my visa was later granted. If you are looking for an experienced conscientious company offering excellent service then UKIS is highly recommended. They will go that extra mile! A special thanks to Nelam and Gerard.

D. Kim

Media Analyst, Surrey

Dear Nelam and Meryl, as you know I was very stressed when I first contacted you. There was a gap in my 10 year residence and I was advised by many city law firms that my application would be refused. You fully researched my case and advised that there was a high chance of success and referred me to the rules, guidance and case law. I instructed you and I cannot describe how happy I was after receiving the phone call from you telling me I had been granted ILR. I wanted to scream but I was in the quiet study area in a library, a long way from the entrance. I am absolutely sure that it would have been very difficult to receive ILR if it had not been for your fantastic work. Since I first saw your website and exchanged emails, I instinctively felt that I must go with you for my visa application. It has turned out to be one of my best decisions! I am so glad and grateful for all your hard work and professionalism. For the right choice and a personal service, I would recommend UKIS!

Mr Olu

Senior IT Consultant , London

Dear Nelam - I would like to express my appreciation to you and the staff at UKIS. I made the right choice choosing your company to handle my application. It was prepared very well with a thorough cover letter. I feel that the speedy outcome of my application was due to the preparation. Anyone looking for a professional and reliable company, look no further than UKIS!

M. Adams

Norwich, uk

Nelam I want to take this opportunity once again to say BIG THANKS to you and your team for the successful outcome of my ILR application. Words aren't enough to express my appreciation for your support, guidance and thoughtfulness. I was in a very difficult situation and as a man it was difficult to talk about the abuse I had endured. I had contacted a few lawyers before contacting you but did not get good professional advice. Nelam you explained the rules for an application based on domestic violence, your advice was very clear. You have always been very professional and understanding. From my first call to you I felt reassured by your advice and knowledge. You put hope and smile back into my life. I admit I called many times just for reassurance. Nelam and Gerard you guided me through the whole process, with Gerard investing so much time and attention to details of the paper work we got the desired decision within the shortest possible time. I have and will continue to recommend UKIS. Thank you, thank you and thank you.

K. Grewal

Customs Officer, London

Nelam - Thank you for all your support with my wife's appeal. As you know this was a very difficult time for us. You have always been extremely helpful and very understanding. Your passion and knowledge shows in the way you handle matters and especially in the way you prepared for the hearing which was allowed. We are grateful to you and your team at UKIS. We can now continue enjoying our family life. Thanks again!

Antony Towers

CFO, FastMarkets Ltd

I would like to thank Nelam, Meryl, Shabana and the team for the help and support they provided to us over the last few months. The process of obtaining Visas for staff is becoming increasingly more difficult and the team at UKIS helped us to meet some pretty tight deadlines. The advice they provided was clear, concise, accurate and professional, which enabled us meet those deadlines. I do not think we would have been able to achieve this if we had done it alone. With their help and guidance, our application sailed through first time, without a hitch.

Raj Banga

The Zane Partnership

Nelam and her team at UKIS are thoroughly professional, friendly and efficient, producing great results. They have invariably delivered what was promised without fuss and delay not only for us but also for our clients who have all spoken very highly of them. Hugely recommended!

Mr Sadhra

UK Immigration Services was recommended to me by a friend. I contacted them regarding a Student Visa for my niece. Their advice was clear throughout, they handled the case professionally, they were pleasant and helpful whenever I called and kept me up-dated, having used other firms in the past, I found UK Immigration Services to be cost effective. The case was successful and my niece got her visa. A warm thanks to Nelam and Quentin.

J Kaur

We have used UK Immigration Services to ensure our staff are compliant with the Immigration Rules. We have been satisfied with their services and rates.

Brenda Lefebvre

Your company was a god send for me. Previously, I had seen 3 Solicitors and it was only your consultants who had the knowledge and imagination to suggest other options. I truly appreciate the efficiency, friendliness, and thoughtfulness, a big thank you!

Mr R Sharma

Estate Agent, Coventry

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both so much for all your professional help. Nelam, as you know, my elderly parents were very nervous when they attending the British High Commission but having you represent them made it much easier. I dread to think how they would have been able to cope with this alone. My parents are now in the UK. We will never forget your professionalism, kindness and wonderful personality. We wish you all the best.

Mr R Rai

Director, Surrey

I first instructed UKIS to handle applications for my relatives in 1999. I was extremely impressed by Quentin and Nelam. Since then I have referred many clients to UKIS. They have always been satisfied. Nelam and Quentin offer an outstanding service to their clients. They have represented many clients overseas who had been refused visas several times. UKIS are a committed, professional, hardworking and robust company.

Mr Malik

Your level of services was second to none, thank you for handling my mother's case. I have highly recommended your firm.

Mr G Gill

Your advice was clear and consistent throughout. The most important thing for me was fees and I was glad you dealt with my case on a fixed fee basis. Thank you Nelam I will always remember the day you called to tell me my wife's appeal had been allowed.

Mr Hundal

IT – London

UKIS was recommended to me. Throughout my dealings with UK Immigration Services I have found them to be highly experienced and efficient. We were kept up-to date and had no need to chase them on the progress of our case. They handled a complex application on our behalf and we received a successful outcome in July 2017 – we are delighted with the outcome and highly recommend UKIS.

Mr & Mrs Zeeshan

UKIS have been great in helping us for our Immigration matter, we received clear and satisfying advice. A HUGE thanks to Nelam and her team, especially Arifa for professionally dealing with our case. Highly recommend UKIS for all Immigration matters. An exceptionally experienced and reliable firm.

Mr Singh and Mrs Kaur

Bristol

My wife and I are British. We spent 12 years fighting to bring our daughter to the UK, not to mention the money and stress.  We had been given the run around and bad advice by many companies, every application had been refused and court appeals refused. In 2014, we approached UKIS.  We first spoke to Nelam Trewin by phone, and arranged an urgent meeting with her. We discussed the background of our case, which was extremely complicated, the pain we had endured was evident from our face and voice.

The meeting was long, I recall Nelam saying it was one of the most complex and sad cases she had heard.  To cut a long story short – my wife and I, after trying for a child for 15 years travelled abroad for IVF treatment, the treatment was successful, and we had a beautiful daughter.  However, shortly after the birth we undertook a DNA test so that we could bring our daughter home, to our utter disbelief the DNA results confirmed we were not the biological parents – that’s when our nightmare began.  There were further DNA tests, repeated applications, court hearings but still our daughter was not able to join us.  It transpired there had been a mix up with the IVF, trying to hold anyone responsible for this was a task in itself, the doctors vanished and clinics closed, we could not trace anyone to hold accountable.

We felt comfortable with Nelam and felt that she and her team would be able to help us, she had a great deal of experience representing complex cases in India so was familiar with the system.  Nelam discussed options, the de-facto visa, adoption, Article 8m and various case law etc. and clearly explained that we should prepare ourselves for a battle, as it was going to be a tough lengthy process.  It was made clear that the application would be refused and the only chance we had would be before a judge. We instructed UKIS to handle the application, the application took time to prepare and I was impressed by the way the application was prepared, UKIS were very thorough, they prepared a comprehensive application.

As we expected the application was refused in 2015.  UKIS lodged an appeal and the appeal was heard in 2016 before 2 senior judges, the appeal went on for most of the day.  To our joy the appeal was allowed. My wife and I were overwhelmed when Nelam told us that our daughter will finally be joining us, but also said there was a chance the Home Office would appeal.  Shockingly, the Home Office did appeal, but were refused permission.

Our daughter finally joined us in the UK in October 2017.  We all visited Nelam and her team in 2018. We are forever indebted to Nelam and her team, they have made our dream into reality, they fought our case with passion and professionalism.  Nelam always responded to my emails promptly, even late evenings and weekends.  The service we received from UKIS is priceless, we would have never been able to achieve this without them and I cannot recommend them enough!

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.

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.

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.

UKIS helped me and my wife in obtaining her visa. Right from the very beginning of the process they were there for us every step of the way. I am so pleased that I decided to instruct them. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services to anyone who needs the assistance of an immigration lawyer. Great company, great people and above all great service!

Mr. and Mrs

Hudson, Surrey

After having a visa application rejected due to inaccurate legal advice from another firm, my husband and I were cautious about choosing a lawyer to work with. We spoke to a number of other lawyers, none of whom impressed us quite like Nelam did. From our initial meeting and all throughout the process, she provided the most clear and practical advice and instruction.

Nelam and Gerard were both excellent at answering questions clearly and demystifying the rules and requirements of our visa. They both fielded a number of anxious emails from me, and dealt with my concerns in a professional and kind manner. Thanks to UKIS, my application was very thorough and professionally presented, and it was accepted within 24 hours of being received by the Home Office, in spite of the previous refusal.

Working with Nelam and Gerard made an otherwise scary and overwhelming visa process manageable and straightforward. I would absolutely recommend UKIS, and I fully intend to return to them for future visa and Indefinite Leave to Remain needs.

Nelam and her Associates have given us very valuable and comprehensive information on how to obtain a UK residence card for a US citizen married to a European national. Their assistance in preparing the application was very professional, they were easy to reach throughout the process always with a quick response. Now I have the card and I am very pleased with UKIS and their work.

We are ever so thankful to find such excellent service by friendly and caring people.

"UKIS were thorough and professional in preparing an application for a spouse visa to be submitted in the event of my fiancée and I marrying overseas. They were friendly, worked quickly and made themselves readily available to deal with matters on the telephone."

Craig and May Jane

Oldbury

My girlfriend at the time, May Jane from the Philippines, was refused a visitor visa to the UK. It was sensible for us to spend time together and for May Jane to meet my family before who took our relationship to the next level, however the UK authorities didn't think this was a valid reason to issue a visa. We were very upset by the reasons for refusal. I contacted UKIS and a consultation was arranged with Nelam. I learnt a great deal about the immigration rules that I wasn't aware of, about why our application, which had been without legal representation, was refused. I was advised about the options on UK Visas Application open to me, the process and time frames. I was impressed by the way the consultation was conducted and instructed UKIS to handle the case.

Today, I'm the happiest man on the planet. May Jane and I have been living together in the UK for the past 2 months. We are married and have a baby on the way. We both owe much of our happiness to Nelam and Hardeep who worked extremely hard and meticulously against deadlines to make sure our application was successful so that May Jane and I could be together and start the next chapter of our lives as a family.

I knew instantly that UKIS was the best firm to handle our case, not only for their professionalism and obvious expertise in the field but also for their passionate and caring approach. I was made to feel like I was their only client, which of course I wasn't. Their professional and caring approach continued throughout our dealings.

I highly recommend UKIS. Thank you so much for being there for us."

Mr & Mrs Beshi

My wife and I endured a long separation as a result of the complex immigration rules. We did not want to take any risks when choosing a company to represent us. We spoke to many companies and were very confused on who to instruct. We spoke to UKIS, they were one of the very few that we were impressed with. We instructed them and have been totally satisfied with the service, the application was prepared meticulously and the outcome was successful. UKIS are efficient, professional and maintain a high standard of service. Highly recommended! Thank you to ALL of you!

Mr Babu

IT Consultant, Berkshire

I was looking for a company to represent me. I read the reviews about UKIS and after speaking to them I instructed. My experience with UKIS was superb and exceeded my expectations of any law firm. The case was handled by Nelam and Maya. I was kept up to date with the progress and they were always prompt replying to any questions I had. They were professional at all times and prepared the application to a very high standard. As a result my father was granted a dependent visa. I am delighted with the outcome. UKIS offer an exceptional service and I highly recommend them.

Barry & Jodi Gleed

Portsmouth, UK

My wife (a US citizen) and I may not be in as traumatic and intimidating a situation as others, but we were in desperate need of clarification and expert knowledge. We got that, and we also got a lot more. Nelam and her associates are the best legal team I have ever encountered. Wonderfully professional, considerate and friendly, and above all, Nelam really is an expert on her subject. This is not a firm intent on milking money, not intent on jargon and hyperbole. The intent here is clearly to provide real help, real information, real fairness. I can't recommend enough.

M. Dehning

Ski Instructor, UK

I would like to thank Nelam and Gerard for their hard work and support. My application was prepared professionally and with dedication. I was against a deadline and the way they handled my case was brilliant. The outcome was successful. I am now in the UK enjoying life with my partner. Before instructing UKIS I had spoken to many firms who gave conflicting advice and quoted fees from extremely low to painfully extortionate. UKIS stood out, they came across as professional and their fees were reasonable. I am very glad I chose UKIS. I highly recommend them for their excellent service.

Mr F Osbourne

Electrician, London

I write this testimonial with great pleasure. When I first contacted UKIS I spoke to Nelam and told her that my application had been pending with the UKBA for almost 10 years and despite paying a huge amount of fees to solicitors to handle my case I was not getting anywhere. She said she could not accurately advise on the phone and suggested a meeting. At the meeting I was impressed by her knowledge as she explained how my case would be handled in great detail and the relevant law. I instructed UKIS to take on my case and this was one of the best decisions I have made. I was granted Indefinite Leave to Remain on the 07 April 2014. I would without hesitation highly recommend UKIS, it was their knowledge and robust approach that resulted in the successful outcome of my application. I would like to thank Hardeep for keeping me updated and Nelam for handling my case. UKIS is definitely the one to choose for a comprehensive service. I just wish I had known about them earlier, it would have saved me a great deal of money and stress.

L. Zegers

I applied for residence in the UK as my wife is a British subject and we had been living in Switzerland for over 30 years. UKIS gave us all the advice and guidance we needed ensuring that the application procedures were followed exactly according to requirements. The UKIS team worked diligently, efficiently and effectively. I now hold a Residence Card. Congratulations and many, many thanks.

Dear Nelam and Team - We would like to sincerely thank you for your professional approach towards our case. It was a difficult time and you kept us informed of all the options and proceedings. We were never left wondering what was going on because you and your team had a great disposition to answer all our questions and arrange meetings when needed. I now have Leave to Remain in the UK and can enjoy family life with my wife and son. We contacted a few people before but your friendly, great communication, honest approach and affordable fees made us go in the right direction. We will definitely continue with your services when time comes to renew my permit. I would highly recommend Nelam and UK immigration services.

C. Onsembe

I would like to thank Nelam and her team at UKIS for the efficient manner in which my application was handled. My experience with your company has been perfect. The application was meticulously prepared with a very comprehensive cover letter. You made the whole process stress free, I was updated throughout the process and didn't need to chase you at all. Your company is definitely different offering a friendly, reliable and fast service. For a more personal service UKIS is the one to choose!

V. Sharma

I had previously studied in the UK and returned home at the end of my studies. I made an application to return to the UK as a visitor and the application was refused by the British Embassy in Mumbai. I was shocked as my application had been carefully prepared. The reasons for refusal were unjustified and harsh. I instructed UKIS who challenged the refusal and although it was after a huge battle, I am glad to say it was overturned and I travelled to the UK on the 8th January 2014. Thank you to Nelam, Meryl and the team at UKIS. I could not have succeeded alone. I would absolutely recommend UKIS.

Surjit Singh

Wolverhampton

My wife's application was refused by the British High Commission New Delhi. My friend highly recommended UKIS to me. I was reluctant as I live in Wolverhampton and they were based in London. I called their office and spoke to Nelam, I was satisfied and impressed as she had a very clear understanding of the Immigration Rules and her advice was clear. I arranged a meeting and UKIS lodged an appeal on behalf of my wife. On the 29 November 2013 I attended a hearing at Taylor House London. The Immigration Judge allowed my appeal on the day. I can't thank Nelam and her team at UKIS enough. From start to finish my case was handled with complete professionalism and enthusiasm. I have been impressed with the level of service and preparation of the case. UKIS certainly lived up to its reputation.

Sandeep Singh

My wife's spouse visa had been refused 3 times by the British High Commission New Delhi. This was a complete nightmare for us, we had instructed many firms. In 2003 UKIS was introduced to me. I met Nelam and Quentin and explained the background. They prepared a fresh application and Nelam attended the interview with my wife at the British High Commission New Delhi. My wife's visa was finally granted! I strongly believe that it was the way the case was meticulously prepared by UKIS and their legal knowledge that secured my wife's visa. I can't thank you enough!

H Kaur

I contacted UK Immigration Services as they were highly recommended. I had travelled to the UK on the basis of my marriage. My husband was emotionally and physically abusive. I didn't have anyone to turn to and did not know the UK system. From my first meeting with Nelam, I knew I was in good hands. Your company helped me tremendously, with the evidence and your hard work my case was successful. Thank you Nelam you really helped me at an extremely difficult time you gave me confidence, thank you Quentin for all your help. You are caring and trusting people.
