Immigration Latest From Gherson

Posted by: Gherson Immigration

Gherson is a London law firm 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 this week?


Why a Tier 1 (Investor Visa) could be the answer to your problem

Given the imminent end of free movement for EU citizens, individuals from the EEA and Switzerland who are looking to relocate to the UK after 31 December 2020 will need to look at the different visa routes available. The Tier 1 (Investor) visa may be a good option to consider and this blog discusses the benefits of this visa route, currently available to individuals outside the EEA and Switzerland.

For more information about the Tier 1 (Investor) route, and why it may be an option for you, please read the full blog here:, posted on 27 November 2020. 


Covid-19 UK travel restrictions: update

Now that the most recent lockdown has ended, the UK Government has announced new rules in respect of travel to and from the UK. It is important to note that England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland each have their own COVID-19 policies and these should be consulted independently before travel is commenced, if applicable. 

We explore the new rules here:, posted on 1 December 2020.
