New 5 star Google review on British Citizenship application for a Polish national.

I have used 1st 4Immigration services twice! The first time to get my UK Residency and the second time for my UK Citizenship. Both times the service provided was professional and impeccable! 1st 4Immigration made this journey very smooth and easy for me with their great communication and organisation. I have already recommended them to a lot of friends and I'll keep on doing it. Special thank you to Jules who was always very patient and very attentive. Thank you for making a big dream come true! Highly recommend!!

This came from Camila, a Polish national. We dealt with both Camila’s Citizenship and permanent residence application prior to that.

Can I change from the 10-year Spouse visa route to the 5-year one to gain permanent residency sooner? Read this successful case and testimonial here that worked using same-day service.

“I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to you for helping me succeed in switching my current visa in to a spouse visa. I can't believe how quick the whole process was. Also want to say thank you to Harpreet who accompanied me to Home Office, he made me feel at ease. I will definitely use 1st 4Immigration in the future and I will recommend them to others. Thank you.”

This came from Nalaaluke, a Namibian national whose husband was British. In this case our client already had a partner visa for 2.5 years (30 months) but it was in the 10 year route. We submitted a ‘normal’ FLR(M) application to switch to the 5 year route. Although it means meeting the strict Financial Requirement and English language requirement, it allows to qualify for Indefinite Leave to remain (ILR, permanent residency), after 5 years instead of 10 years. 5 years have to be on the ‘normal’ spouse visas only. Can’t be combined with the 2.5 visa from the 10 year route, even though both visas are for 2.5 years at a time and both are from the ‘Partner’ category.

We made an application on same-day service in Croydon and all went well on the day.


If you have to enter the 10-year route, you can then change to the 5-year route , meaning fewer steps to the permanent residency, a midway of 7.5 years , so to speak , although you can switch to the 5-year route well before the end of the 2.5-year visa. Here you can read the post about the difference between the2 routes.

The next step will be to extend a Spouse visa for further 2.5 years and apply for permanent residency after 5 years.

To read about the difference between the 5 and 10 year routes please look at this earlier post: http://1st4immigration-visas.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/what-is-difference-between-5-year-route.html

If you are an Immigration Adviser or a Solicitor please visit our immigration Training and CPD website: www.1st4immigration.com/training We have a weekend OISC Level 1 course every month, a Saturday Points-Based System course every month and we also have online training courses, including Online OISC Level 1 course and courses focusing on the British Citizenship and Spouse/Partner visas. All our training courses are CPD-accredited with CPD credit accepted by  OISC. 


One of our most popular posts (and most commonly asked questions): What is the difference between 5-year route and 10-year route as a Spouse or Parent of a UK citizen?

This subject has become even more popular since the recent case of MM (Lebanon) on the Financial Requirement for a UK Spouse /Partner visa category. 

5 years and 10 years refer to the number of years a foreign partner needs to spend in the UK, in the given category, to qualify for permanent residency. So, in the 5-year route one needs 5 years and in the 10-year route twice more, ie 10 years. It means if you get a visa in this route, you'd need 5 or 10 years respectively from the date of the first visa. It does not relate to the number of years preceding to the first application in this route. 

When does each of them apply? 


5-year route is for a migrant who is applying as a Spouse/Partner, or as a Parent, of a UK citizen under the Appendix FM and who is able to meet all the requirements. This is also known as application “within the Rules”. It means one can meet all the requirements, be it applying at the right place (ie switching from another category when it is allowed), meeting the Financial or English language requirements or otherwise.  


10-year route applies when the couple cannot meet the visa requirements for the standard 5-year route but have the circumstances that are compassionate or exceptional enough (in the opinion of the Home Office caseworkers) to be considered for a visa anyway. It may be applicable if the couple cannot meet the Financial Requirement in the precise ways specified by the 5-year route's rules, or when the couple's family/health circumstances prevent them from meeting it altogether (for example, a serious illness). It can also be used by the overstayers, i.e. migrants without a valid visa, but it is not a guaranteed way of securing a visa.  

An easy way to sum it up in plain language is: if you can meet the Rules - you enter the 5-year route;, this meas meeting the rules on everything from the current visa status to the Finical Requirement  if not - you may (but not guaranteed) be able to enter the 10-year route, There are no exact rules how, each case is considered on an individual basis , and it will be up to you (and your representative /  lawyer) to convince the authorities and to provide the sufficient evidence. 

While this option remains, even more so now following the court case, the answer for those who genuinely cannot meet the Rules for one reason or another (not necessarily financial), the downside is having to spend twice more time in the UK to qualify for permanent residency. It has also become available to applicants outside the UK, which was not possible earlier. 

5-year route means 2 applications, 2 sets of fees, 2 visas, each for 2.5 years. 


10-year route means 4 applications, 4 sets of fees (unless the applicant can prove he/she is destitute), 4 visas, each for 2.5 years. 

Once you are in the 10-year route, can you change to the 5-year route to speed up the waiting period for permanent residency? Yes , you can, we have an excellent post here on a relevant testimonial.

A new five star Google review about our Schengen visa services

“Second time using their services, prompt responses and painless process made it a completely stress free experience. Issued a two year multiple schengen visa so very very happy.” Satwinder, British national who applied for his Indian wife through us

It is possible to obtain a French Schengen visa within 3-4 working days from the date of appointment for most nationals, such as South African, Thai, Filipino, Russian, Indian, Chinese and most others. We can also assist with the German and Portuguese Schengen visas.

The good thing about applying through French Embassy is that they tend to issuer longer, multiple-entry, visas. Although you have to go through a very stringent process of application, you may have a visa lasting for several years.

Business plan writing service for a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa - from a firm of experienced Immigration Entrepreneurs!

A business plan was made compulsory for initial applications from 6 April 2015.  Over the past several years we’ve been dealing with the Entrepreneur visa applications for our clients. As a part of each application, we have to read client’s business plan, ask to make changes and generally, to include the information relevant to the Entrepreneur visa rules as well as based on the questions a client may be asked at a interview (from our experience of clients’ visa interviews).

Our experience allowed us to develop an approach to creating the business plans from a Tier 1 Entrepreneur visa point of view. Instead of using standard templates, we focus on what the visa officers want to see, i.e. on what a migrant will be required to do while holding this visa: investment of £50,000 or £200,000 and what your client is going to spend it on. For example, paying yourself a salary is not counted, yet it is very common for clients to do this.   

Another example will be including a plan of creating 2 jobs and that they will be for ‘settled’ people. Most business plans we see do not mention these 2 jobs at all, yet it is a common question at a visa interview, so we think it is a good idea to include it and add employer’s National Insurance contributions to the calculation. 

We also advise to explain your business idea in simple and plain language. For instance, there is no benefit in adding many technical IT terms because the visa officers are not IT professionals, yet they have to understand your business idea. If you can explain it to us, we can explain to the UK Visas & Immigration. Finally, we advise to treat it like a CV but for a business. Too many CVs contain information designed to make the applicant look ‘clever’, yet fall apart once an interviewer starts asking questions about it. The Home Office staff do read the business plan and may ask questions!  

A typical business plan takes 1-2 weeks to prepare but we always try to accommodate clients’ urgent requests and do it as soon as possible.

For more info or for what’s included in a typical plan, please visit: http://www.1st4immigration.com/business-plan-writing.php or contact us: info@1st4immigration.com

Fast UK / British passport renewal for August bank holiday! Submission within 2 working days. Renewal, replacement of lost passport, and a 2nd valid passport for frequent business travellers.

Multi Travel Visas, a prominent UK visa company in the City of London, can assist with renewing a UK passport using fast service at the Passport Office in London, with the authorisation from you as per the government requirements. We can usually submit passport applications within  2 working days.

We can also help if for some reason you are unable to apply yourself. If you don't have time to travel to a Passport Office yourself we can apply on your behalf (you don't have to come to London). If you are living/working abroad you can courier documents to our London office and we can submit them promptly for same-day service. This includes if your passport has run out of pages or if you need to renew not only yours but also/or your child's passport urgently.  Example: British expats living or working in the USA, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.  

Passport renewal: we can renew your adult passport on same-day service or 1 week service, with applications submitted as soon as next 1 - 2 working days. You can also ask for a ‘Jumbo’ passport (48 pages instead of the standard 32), handy if you travel frequently outside the UK and your passport is full of stamps – it will take much longer for your passport to run out of pages. 

Replacement of a lost or stolen passport: we can submit promptly, as above, but replacements are only processed on 1 week service at the Passport Office. 

2nd valid passport for frequent business travellers: this is possible within the timing of normal urgent services, here your employer has to provide a letter confirming you have to travel frequently for work and you need a 2nd passport to travel while your 1st one is used to apply for visas.

Foreign travel visas: Russia (including invitations, ie visa support), China, India, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan and others. If you have a British passport but work abroad we can still process a visa application here in London. For example, if you are working abroad far from a capital city in that country, and cannot go to the Embassies, then you could courier your documents to us and we’d submit to the Embassies in the UK.  

Contact us now: 0871 472 1468. Email info@multitravelvisas.co.uk , we reply on the same working day! Web-site: http://www.multitravelvisas.co.uk/same-day-british-passport-renewal.php  with the visa requirements and clients' feedbacks. Calls to 0871 number cost £0.10 per minute, emails are free.

Thanks 1st 4immigration!” Shane, New Zealand national

Fast UK / British passport renewal for summer travels and August bank holiday! Submission within 2 working days. Renewal, replacement of lost passport, and a 2nd valid passport for frequent business travellers.

Multi Travel Visas, a prominent UK visa company in the City of London, can assist with renewing a UK passport using fast service at the Passport Office in London, with the authorisation from you as per the government requirements. We can usually submit passport applications within  2 working days.

We can also help if for some reason you are unable to apply yourself. If you don't have time to travel to a Passport Office yourself we can apply on your behalf (you don't have to come to London). If you are living/working abroad you can courier documents to our London office and we can submit them promptly for same-day service. This includes if your passport has run out of pages or if you need to renew not only yours but also/or your child's passport urgently.  Example: British expats living or working in the USA, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.  

Passport renewal: we can renew your adult passport on same-day service or 1 week service, with applications submitted as soon as next 1 - 2 working days. You can also ask for a ‘Jumbo’ passport (48 pages instead of the standard 32), handy if you travel frequently outside the UK and your passport is full of stamps – it will take much longer for your passport to run out of pages. 

Replacement of a lost or stolen passport: we can submit promptly, as above, but replacements are only processed on 1 week service at the Passport Office. 

2nd valid passport for frequent business travellers: this is possible within the timing of normal urgent services, here your employer has to provide a letter confirming you have to travel frequently for work and you need a 2nd passport to travel while your 1st one is used to apply for visas.

Foreign travel visas: Russia (including invitations, ie visa support), China, India, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan and others. If you have a British passport but work abroad we can still process a visa application here in London. For example, if you are working abroad far from a capital city in that country, and cannot go to the Embassies, then you could courier your documents to us and we’d submit to the Embassies in the UK.
