UK Visa For Thai Nationals Specialists & Immigration Appeals Help & Advocacy, Bangkok & Epsom Offices.

Today the Government announsed a plan to increase the NHS Surcharge by 100% as from a date to be annouced starting December 2018.
Within hours of Tony being interviewed by ITV Meridian for the news at 6 today the case in question has been immediately overturned by the Home Office and the visa issued immediately. This was a case where the Home Office refused a settlement visa for a wife by applying the incorrect rule. Tony was asked for his comments on this case.
Angela has now received authorisation from the OISC to work as a qualified immigration Adviser.
As from 21st April 2017 all settlement visa applications will be processed in the UK and decisions will be made in approximately 60 working days. Please see details on our Settlement Visa page.


This visa is for people who are already married. 

In all  cases a probationary visa valid for 30 months from the date of issue will be given after which further leave to remain for another 30 months followed by an application  for indefinite leave to remain will need to be applied for in the UK. 

Visas are issued for a validity of thirty days to enter the UK and collect the biometric residence permit from the designated post office.


A spouse is allowed to work or study in the UK without requiring any further permission and they can use the NHS for free.

In all cases proof of the relationship will be required along with evidence that the financial and accommodation requirements are met, the English proficiency requirement and Tuberculosis test are also necessary as is a sponsorship letter.
