UK is a very popular global destination for all types of migrants and there are different types or categories of UK Visas to address different requirements of long-term migrants and short-term visitors.
UK Government and the Home Office have announced new points-based immigration system for coming years after exit from the EU and end of free movement arrangements for EU, EEA and Swiss citizens.
UK is a popular destination for International Students, Highly Skilled Migrants, Skilled Migrants, Entrepreneurs, Innovators and businesses. Because the UK population is made up of many migrants of different origin and nationalities, there is a huge demand for spouse visas, family visit visas and family reunion visas.
