How to start the process
The first step of your application is an evaluation stage. At this stage, we collect the basic information required for your online application form (such as your background, education, work history, etc). We would also collect the basic documents required to start the assessment (such as your Passport, Utility bill and your CV). Once the documents and the information have been checked and verified by a licensed OISC advisor, you will receive the complete breakdown of your evaluation results as well as the information about your eligibility and pathway forward.
How the process works
The process for receiving a permit is unique for every case, however, it shares some common features, such as document submission and verification, your profile assessment, etc. Each application is unique and the outcome is affected by multiple factors such as the type of visa you are applying for, your background, qualifications, etc. Please feel free to contact us for more specific information regarding the visa type you are interested in. If you are not sure for which visa you should apply, we will be able to consult you as well.

We do, however, provide a recommendation (reference) letter that you can use when applying as well as
Do you offer sponsorship

Please be advised that UK GVS does not pay for your visa. Feel free to contact us to find out more information about how sponsorship works.
