Question ID: 505787
I am attempting to get a work permit to work in the United Kingdom. 
I've been referred to a website called , which seems to
be a commercial site that submits and manages application packages to
the UK immigration authorities.  What I want to know is whether I can
submit these documents myself (avoiding's high fees)
and if so, where I get them and to whom I may submit directly.  I
believe my best shot is with the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme.
Thank you.  Betsy

Dear betsyj-ga, is indeed a immigration consultancy firm. You can,
however, make your own application. I am going to refer you to the
British Government?s Home Office web site which specifically deals
with this issue and you will immediately see that it is a very complex
and bureacratic process. Their FAQS page notes that "Do I need a legal
adviser when I make an immigration application? You do not need a
legal adviser to make an immigration application. However, you may
find it helpful to take advice."

Start at this page and explore the information to see which is the
most appropriate for you. I cannot advise you much further as I do not
know your personal situation.

You can then download the forms and guidance on how to submit them from this page.

Home page

If you gain a work permit you may be required must obtain entry
clearance before travelling.
This site will take you through the process and supplies the relevant forms.

I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
Thank you
