We will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to complete the application. You will fill in your details, book a biometrics appointment (fingerprints and eye scan) and then pay the visa fee.

Once you have attended your biometrics appointment you will need to either drop in or courier your completed visa application to IEP.

IEP will review the application to make sure there are no errors and then submit it to the UK Border Agency on your behalf.

NOTE: If the UK Border Agency finds an error on your application they will deny your application and not disclose where the error was made. You will have to re-submit the application and pay the visa fee again. IEP GUARANTEES you get the visa on the first go!

Criminal Record Form:
If you have ever been arrested, convicted or given diversion you will need to obtain a police check and additional documents to support your application. IEP will be able to advise how you should go about obtaining these.

Arrival Booking Form:
After IEP have sent off your completed visa application you will be sent the arrival booking form. Complete this and return it back to IEP and we will arrange your arrival accommodation in London.

Step 8

Members Website:
You will get access to our UK partner’s online portal which you can book your arrival orientation through. You can also find info on CV format, where to find work and accommodation, social events and much more.

Step 9

Work Visa Issued:
Your passport will be returned back to you by the UK Border Agency. You will need to send IEP a copy of your work visa. We ask you to do this so we can review it to make sure it is issued for the right duration of time.

Step 10
