Passportia – Immigration Experts
Passportia is a specialist immigration firm which is independent of the UK government and regulated by the Office of Immigration Services Commissioner. Applications for UK visas are made directly to the Home Office or visa application centres, however legal advice on making a claim cannot be obtained from these bodies. Our specialist lawyers offer advice and advocacy services in relation to applications for immigration and visas to the UK.

Your Right to Representation
We believe everyone has the right to be represented and will never refuse to take on your appeal. If you have been granted a right of appeal, we will meet with you free of charge to help you decide your options. We will provide you with our view on the probability of success and a fixed fee quote so that you know at the start how much the process is going to cost.
The Appeals Process
Early preparation of your appeal is crucial. It is your duty to prove your case; the Home Office will not help you to prove your case. In fact they will send a Presenting Officer to court to examine and attack it. If you have not brought the correct documents with you on the day, the Tribunal is unlikely to give you more time to obtain them.
We understand that the real work in winning an appeal is done before you reach the hearing centre. As experienced immigration advocates we will go through your refusal letter in detail, build your case and advise you on the necessary evidence for the Tribunal that will be accepted by the Tribunal judge. The outcome of the meeting will be an action plan of documents to find and witnesses to contact. Our extensive knowledge of the Tribunal procedure will give you peace of mind that your case has the best chance for success.
On the day of the hearing, your advocate will meet you before proceedings begin and represent you during the entire hearing to ensure your case is presented effectively.
