As the world of UK immigration law is continuously evolving, with new immigration routes, new guidance, and new rules being implemented regularly by the Home Office, it is essential to keep up-to-date with the latest immigration news and announcements. We aim to report on the majority of these changes via our blogs. We also often post overviews of the various immigration routes and discuss requirements within the different visa categories.
So what have we been talking about this week?

Gherson looks at whether there are any other options available.
