Asylum & Immigration

Asylum & Immigration

Our asylum and immigration advice service is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC). Advice services for immigration are defined at three different levels:

      • Level 1 – Initial advice- basic immigration advice within the immigration rules

 

      • Level 2 – Casework – more complex casework, including advice outside the immigration rules

 

    • Level 3 – Advocacy and representation – appeals

Always check that your advisor and the agency are registered with an appropriate body (OISC or Law Society) to provide advice. It is a criminal offence for people who are not registered to provide advice.
