On average this type of work takes between 6 – 8 hours to complete. This means that on average costs are £1,500. All figures include VAT unless specifically stated. The exact number of hours depends on the circumstances in your case such as A) the amount of supporting evidence that we need to consider, B) the language you speak and C) whether you are applying with other dependants.
If you are able to provide sufficient evidence at our first meeting including the applicable immigration rules, the cost is likely to be at the lower end of this range.
