If you need specialist advice about coming to the UK as a student or worker, we can help.
Tiers 2, 4 and 5 of the Points Based System provide strict rules for workers and students. While the system brings a degree of predictability, with that comes a very unforgiving approach by decision makers. The solicitors at McGill & Co know from experience that successfully resolving visa applications under these categories or assisting clients who have received adverse decisions requires a keen eye for the rules and precise technical knowledge.
To discuss how our specialists can help you, contact us today by calling 0131 228 2083 for our Edinburgh office or 0141 248 6552 for our Glasgow office or complete our online enquiry form and a member of our team will get back to you right away.
