“Do not trust ukvisaandimmigration.co.uk!”

Written on: 23/07/2013 by VicPoole (2 reviews written)

During the initial phone call - I was advised that £600 would cover ALL costs associated with my immigration matter. Upon paying this - I was advised that I would have to pay another £835 for the fee . . . I was misled right from the start. They requested an exhaustive list of items that they needed to handle my case. I sent them everything. Next thing I know - I get someone calling me and asking for me to send them the items I had already sent them! I feared my documents lost at that point… Read Full Review

Any contact with UK Visa and Immigration is now handled by UK Immigration Barristers. Same people, same trick. Upfront fees and no proper service provided. Three of them were in Court this week for a similar thing they ran at three solicitors' practices.

This is on such a masssive scale and so organised, SOCA should be investigating. Instead any investigation is being done by the Bar Standards Board who have absoloutely no powers to close down this outfit.

“And proved guilty in the UK court of law....”

Written on: 02/04/2013 by veroa1401 (1 review written)

I contacted them to obtain a sponsor license to be able to employ foreign artists and pay £1200 of fee upfront. Not only they did not support me but their intervention actually hindered the process: with their involvement I had the license refused 4 times, I then decided to apply on my own and was accepted straight away. ALl along the process they proved irresponsive, unprofessional and with little understanding of the whole Tier 2 and 5 licensing process, which is a basic for a company… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/01/2013 by disgruntledimmigrant (1 review written)

If I were to describe this company verbally, to a friend, it would laced with a long list of prane nouns and adjectives. For those on the internet, here is a mild description. As I called the company the first time, the director with his charm was quick to demand my money, take it and then never answer the phone again. The first case worker that took on my account was quickly fired after 5 weeks. The remaining case workers were absolutely disgraceful in manners, were terribly slow to answer… Read Full Review

The police are investigating both companies - UK Visa and Immigration, UK Immigration Barristers. Seems like there are a lot of personnel who are tied to both companies. Neither company comes under OISC regulatory body for Immigration advice.

I first contacted them last year, has two of my visa applications were refused. This company promised to arrange all paper work and help to prepare documents and the application. They sounded so helpful at the start, then they wanted there £1200 upfront. Then the problems started, we was given FALSE and MISSLEADING information, and emails went unanswered, phone calls ignored.

The group UK Visa and Immigration Scam has now been blocked on facebook - seems they did a pretty good job at knocking a hole in the income of the likes of UK Visa and Immigration (no longer registered with OISC) (winding up order against them) now seems to have transferred business to UK Immigration Barristers.

I am going through pain of waiting for my application, they just said because of data protection you can not talk to Barrister who is handling your case. I have idea is it true or not??

I just got name of Barrister in my control panel and nothing else, its been 1 month and there is no proceedings in my application. Kind of document they asked and I replied is seems generalised and nothing related to my case.

Till now it seems to me a complete SCAM, if I am not convinced then definitely I will not dispatch my original documents with them.

Samje36's can you please find out if these guys has legal right to file my immigration case using their credentials etc.??

We had the same problem.

The only person i managed to eventually receive any reply from by email was (name removed) ..... Which quickly came following a threatening telephone conversation with UK Immigration Barristers (which I believe is the new company).
We managed to get all of our documents back but still waiting any refund that was offered to us.

Google search him & you will find quite a tangled web (also search any of the names you were given in communications while you dealt with this rip-off company.

teamlegal@ukvisaandimmigration.co.uk

Do any of these names ring any bells:

(Name removed) (dealt with us briefly)

Name removed) (our "case worke!" - LLB (HONS) AT MANCHESTER METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY
Specialties - IMMIGRATION LAW

I am currently investigating these people & locations & when I gain more information I will post on here or on Facebook page "UK Visa scammers uncovered"

we are still dealing to them as between this company and home office they lost our passports. first of all i requested document return from home office-to be able to prove the case status. then i will write complaint to home office.
i also complained to OISC,although they would not proceed claim as visa and immigration service are already suspended (even we sent documents in december when they acted under OISC legislation. we also written a letter to local MP, who contacted home office on our behalf.as last measures we are going to talk with police and media. good luck. if you lost money you can talk with your bank too, i know some people got their money this way

Hello All, What a 4 weeks stressful we had with these idiots in ukvisaandimmigration. I finally could get my document from home office but I thought I add my experience and it may help someone else with the same issue. Basically company is busted and there is a wind up petition against them in court for early October and they are closed from 11 July 2012.

Uk visa and immigration solicitors, Newland house,
Birmingham. Were the WORST solicitors I have used.
They lied to us, gave false information and stalled for time.
I made an offical complaint to the immigration commissioners, and have just received a letter to say that the solicitors have lost there licence and there registration with the OISC has been cancelled.
I lost £1200 with them.

They took close to 15 months to prepare an application that was worse than I could have done myself. They wasted so much time by not giving us all the information we required to obtain the correct supporting evidence then at the last moment switched the type of visa we were applying for which was denied by the UK border control. When I reached out to advise them they have yet to respond. These people are only interested in taking your money and provide a terrible service… Read Full Review

I have spent the last week trying to contact them and no luck. Ever number that I have for them is either a recorded message telling me to email or is no longer active. When I email, I get no response.

I did a bit of checking and there was still activity on their Facebook page. So i sent them a private message asking why i can no longer get in touch with them and that I had requested a call back and no-one had got back to me. They responded with a message asking when I requested the call back to which i replied 'yesterday'. The afternoon of that same day, i checked their Facebook page and it had been deleted

To get in touch with them, I have even pretended that I am a new customer and requested numerous call backs and no one has contacted me.

I have a feeling that they have gone bust, been shut down or are no longer available and have no idea what to do next. They may have my visa and passport, they may not... I have not had a clue.

Have you had any further look with getting in touch with them/finding out what is happening? Have you reported them to the OISC? Please comment even if you have nothing yet as I want to start investigating this further.

Lets keep this thread going and see if we can find anything out

“the worst visa advice service”

Written on: 02/07/2012

One of the worst service providers in the UK when it comes to advice on immigration matters. They do all the sweet talk in the beginning, take the full amount and then vanish. Expect very late or no response at all from their case workers. There isn't much you can do once you have paid them upfront. In fact on many occasions I received wrong advice. I am in the process of reporting them to the Bar Association and also to UKBA for their conduct. Better STAY AWAY then sorry… Read Full Review

“A fabulous service”

Written on: 30/05/2012 by prissya (1 review written)

Thanks to UK visa and Immigration my children got their UK visas to come and join me in the UK after their mother had passed away. I did not know what was going to happen to them and needed to get them here quickly. I contacted UK visa and immigration for urgent help and they acted so quickly. My caseworker was so helpful and did all the paperwork for me and now I am the happiest man in the world because my children arrived safely in the UK and can stay permanently and legally without having… Read Full Review

“I didn’t expect such great online service.”

Written on: 30/04/2012

Although these folks are a legal firm, they operate with the efficiency of a really good website business. I didn’t need to have to meet them face-to-face as I was able to complete much of the process online. I spoke to an Immigration expert via the live-web-chat, sent my documents through the post and paid via telephone. Much of the info I needed about my Visa was online and they offered a number of ways for me to get in touch. The process could be quicker if they had an online payment… Read Full Review

“UK Visa and Immigration charged a fixed fee…”

Written on: 20/04/2012 by garthh (1 review written)

Every other service that I had called to help me all wanted to charge by the hour or charge an extortionate amount for me to get a marriage visa. I simply didn’t have the budget to pay hourly fees or some of the prices that I was being quoted and I was all set to give up searching. I was given the information about this service by a friend who had used them before, met them in person and had been given an information pack. When I flicked through the information pack I was immediately drawn in… Read Full Review

All started well when i contacted the company! Wanted to get My Wife Sister over for a visit from Thailand. Went through all the requested process's of obtaining documents,sent them off for checking etc. Went to and fro with documents for a few weeks. I left it for a period due to business commitments. Then decided to contact them to finish the application. Got all the required documents returned from them, with a note to say an appointment had been booked. Sent all the relevant info over… Read Full Review

“I would highly recommend their services.”

Written on: 23/02/2012 by zackstone05 (1 review written)

I use the UK Visa and Immigration website regularly to keep up-to-date with the news that they post on their site. I came across an article that was talking about increased Visa fees in the UK and this affected me because I come to Britain regularly for Business purposes and I soon had to apply for a business visit visa. Thanks to the news on the website I was able to avoid the increased charges for my next Business Visit Visa. What’s great about their service is that they appear to have the… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Service”

Written on: 22/02/2012

I needed a Visa extension really quickly as I had totally forgotten to renew mine after its six month expiry period. I knew that there was no chance that I would get this done by myself, so I contacted UK Visa and Immigration. I was worried at first that they may not be a real company so I called their bluff and asked if I could make an appointment to come and see them in their London office, which they had listed on their website. They didn’t have a problem with that so I visited them and I… Read Full Review
