Immigration Fees – OLD


SRA’s Price and Service Transparency Rules

In accordance with the new SRA’s Price and Service Transparency Rules, we are required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to provide price information with the preparation and submission of certain types of Immigration applications. We offer professional service with very reasonable fees.

Agreed Fixed Fees

We have an agreed fix fee structure where we agree a fixed fee with you from the outset of the case so you know how much your case will cost exactly. Please note that once an Agreed fee is agreed we will not and cannot increase this fee any further until the completion of your case.

Appleman Legal Solicitors is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and are exempt from the regulation by the OISC. Only those who are non-solicitors e.g. consultants or advisors are regulated by the OISC.

What is Included in the Agreed Fixed Fees

The quoted fee includes:

  • considering documents
  • attending on client
  • taking your instructions and providing advice
  • preparing and submitting the application
  • advising you on timelines and the outcome of your application

The work will involve:

  • discussing your circumstances in detail and confirming whether this is the most appropriate application for you to make and what other options may be available to you;
  • giving you advice about the requirements of the Immigration Rules and whether you meet the criteria.
  • if you do not fulfil certain criteria, whether this can be overcome and how;
  • considering the supporting evidence, you have provided
  • where necessary, helping you obtain further evidence (such as medical records and bank statements), including taking statements of any witnesses;
  • preparing your application and submitting it on your behalf
  • Attendance at a Home Office interview: if the Home Office ask you to attend an interview, we will give you clear advice and discuss the possibility of us attending with you at the appropriate time.
  • giving you advice about the outcome of the application and any further steps you need to take.

What is not included in the Agreed Fixed Fee

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa fees, interpreters, independent reports etc. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

However, please note that the following disbursements are not included in the quoted Fees. The disbursement fees to be incurred will be agreed with you in advance.

Interpreter / Translation of Documents Costs

The number of hours needed for interpreters will vary on the complexities of the case. Often clients will bring a friend or another community figure to come and help interpret. Clients do not always have to use an interpreter of our choosing.

Independent Experts

Independent expert reports e.g. medical experts are not required in many cases: we will let you know as soon as possible if we consider an expert report is necessary

Travel Disbursements  

If there is an interview and we do attend with you, there will be additional disbursements in respect of our mileage/travel expenses.

Home Office Fees

Any Home Office fees for making the application will have to be paid to the Home Office directly as part of the application process by you.

Counsel Fees

In Appeal Cases, counsel fees are also not included in the Fixed Agreed Fees. These fees will be agreed with you in advance before counsel is instructed.


Where the Home Office refuse your application, advice and assistance in relation to any appeal is also not included in the quoted Fees.

How long will my application take?

We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. Read the current processing times.

We will normally be able to submit this type of application within 3 weeks of you instructing us, but we will let you know at the earliest opportunity if it is likely to take longer than this.

Please note the anticipated number of hours and fees are an estimate based on the facts above. All applications are likely to vary and of course, we can give you a more accurate estimate once we have more information about your specific case.
