What is the procedure?

Once you have registered for us to assist you in applying for a UK Visa, we will contact you within 12 working hours. Our visa specialists will take you through the application process and provide you with information regarding the next step of the process. When you have confirmed your requested services, our visa specialist will send you a link to a secure portal to complete the payment for the services that you have requested, via your preferred payment method (see payment option below).

We will arrange your consultation at a time that is convenient to the applicant and you (the sponsor). Should you request a document preparation pack, our visa specialists will provide you with a personalised checklist, outlining the documents required to support your application.

After all supporting documents are received by our visa team, our specialist will check all documentation and supporting materials for accuracy, as well provide recommendations if necessary. The applicant will be asked to complete a short questionnaire in Russian, which our visa specialists will use as a guideline when completing the visa application form on the consulate’s website.

If you have requested the Full Service, our dedicated visa specialists will manage the entire application process on the applicant’s behalf, including completing and submitting the application form on the consulate’s website, cover the consulate fees, arrange for the applicant to enrol their biometric data at the Visa Application Centre, as well as assist the applicant with travel arrangements if required.

Once you have registered your biometric data and the visa application has been submitted, the Visa Application Centre will provide a unique reference number, enabling us to track the progress of your application.

We understand how unnerving the process of obtaining a UK visa can be. In view of that, our specialists will keep you informed throughout the entire process, and will notify you and the applicant immediately once a decision has been made, with one of three of the following outcomes:

  1. The applicant’s visa has been successfully issued: we can arrange a time for you to collect your visa and your passport with a visa from our Moscow Office, or organise a courier to deliver your documents securely to an agreed address.
  2. The visa application has been “refused entry clearance” (was unsuccessful): the Visa Application Centre will provide an overview of the application, detailing the grounds for visa refusal. Should this be the case, our visa specialists are on hand to provide you with information on what you can do next.
  3. The Consulate decides to ask an applicant for an interview before making the final decision: Applicants should be aware that interviews are not immediately guaranteed. However, our visa specialists will arrange an interview for the applicant at the earliest possible time. It is not necessary for the sponsor to attend the interview though they may do so if they wish.

Please ensure that you read our terms and conditions before proceeding with our application form.

How can I pay for UK visa services?

You have several options to pay for your visa including:

Do you guarantee that the visa will be issued?

Unfortunately not, no one can guarantee the issue of a visa, this is purely at the consulate’s discretion. To be granted a UK visa, the applicant must satisfy the requirements of the Visa and Immigration branch of the UK Home Office. As an agent, we work on your behalf to ensure your application has the best chance of success, and we do so by collating, preparing, and submitting your application in accordance to the consulate’s guidelines.
