UK Immigration is the roller-coaster ride of UK bureaucracy: Hold on to your hat and coat-tails for the ride of your life and hope to goodness you don't fall out, because chances are you'll land on someone important - like a child or adult dependant.
Settlement, Nationality and Citizenship combine some of the most complex parts of UK immigration. "Am I a British citizen?" Unlikely. But then again where, when and who were you born to? Were your parents flying in a hot air balloon between Dover and Calais? Were you living in Monsterrat in 2002? Have any of your parents served in a British Army regiiment? Worked at a diplomatic post?
If you can figure out your status based on the answers to these questions, well done you. You can now begin to process your way through the merry-go-round.
But droll humour aside, applying for a visa under UK regulations is no laughing matter. These guides will give you a no nonsense jargon free look at the issues that matter in your application, and some of the common mythology which so often causes and application to fail.
There are many little 'assumptions' that can turn a visa application into a 'big failure'. This UK immigration guide will help you to avoid making many of the most critical errors.
