Gherson is an immigration solicitors in London, specialising in UK immigration, nationality, extradition and human rights law.
As the UK Immigration world 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 numerous immigration routes and discuss requirements within the different visa categories.
So what have we been talking about recently?
English language requirement for students
On Monday of last week, the Home Office released new guidance in respect of the English language requirement for students.
We reviewed the new guidance and provided an overview which can be found here: https://www.gherson.com/blog/english-language-requirement-for-students, posted 5 October 2020.
EU Settlement Scheme
The EU Settlement Scheme was introduced to provide EEA and Swiss nationals permission to remain in the UK lawfully post-Brexit. We discuss here why the Scheme is important and crucially, we highlight the approaching deadlines for applications to be made under the Scheme: https://www.gherson.com/blog/eu-settlement-scheme-why-is-it-important, posted 6 October 2020.
Tier 1 Investor Route – might this be an alternative visa route for Entrepreneurs?
As the UK immigration system can be hard to navigate, applicants are often unsure of the most effective immigration route to pursue. If you are an Entrepreneur looking to come to the UK, it may be useful to read our blog to see if the Investor route is a viable option for you: https://www.gherson.com/blog/investor-visa, posted 6 October 2020.
