This application is points based and has very stringent requirements which must be met. You will require specified points for a Tier 5 (Temporary Worker) application to be successful.
You must have the following:

How we can help you
For a majority of our immigration matters, we charge a fixed fee.
It is our usual practice to require any fees that are payable for work to be done on your behalf to be paid in advance before any work is carried out. This means that you must pay before any work is started, including applications that need to be submitted to the Home Office or for any appeals that need to be lodged with the First‐tier Tribunal.
However, we do understand that not everyone will be able to pay in this manner. That is why we offer flexible payment options for individual clients.
For a confidential consultation to speak with us about how we can help you about your immigration matter, please call us on 020 8004 9199 / 0208 679 5100 or alternatively, on 07724 513 822 or send us an email.
We are happy to discuss your immigration matter with you over the telephone initially so that you can decide before what you want to do or how you wish to proceed. If you are interested in seeking more information and/or advice and want to see us for an appointment in person, we ask for an initial payment on account of £150.00 to be made in advance to us after which an appointment is arranged with one of our Immigration Solicitors.
If you do instruct us and proceed ahead with the making of any application or appeal, this initial payment will be taken off the cost of the matter that we deal with on your behalf. However, in the event that you do not proceed and instruct us on any matter, then the initial payment will cover the cost of the appointment and will be non‐refundable.
