Third Party UK Immigration Barristers Services Increasing say 'Industry Experts'


As UK Immigration continues to find itself in the media spotlight, amid claims of scandal and lax policies within the ranks of the UK Border Agency (UKBA) and the Home Office, the emergence of independent UK Immigration Barristers and other such services has increased dramatically as immigrants look for alternative services outside of official channels.

(PRWEB UK) 25 October 2012

Recent reports have shown that the UKBA appears to be buckling under immense pressure, with recent news stories highlighting their split from the UK Border Force and a number of fundamental errors that have done little to enhance the reputation of UK Immigration.

Many corners of society have expressed disillusion with UK Immigration policies and immigrants are finding it increasingly difficult to acquire a UK Visa when applying directly to the UKBA. As such, people looking to gain legal entry to the UK are now calling upon the services of independent UK Immigration Barristers, Immigration Solicitors and other UK Visa and Immigration services.

One of the key factors for the increased use of such services is the demand for them. It is currently estimated that immigrants arriving into Britain currently stands at around 500,000 a year, that's the equivalent of one person per minute (Source - Office of National Statistics). In short, the UKBA is unable to process the number of applications at the rate which immigrants are arriving.

Over the next 20 years it is anticipated that the UK population will increase by up to 7 million people as a result of immigration. This will mainly be in England and represents a population increase that will be 7 times the population of the city of Birmingham.

It is expected that around 40% of household formations in the UK, between 2006-2031, will be as a direct result of new immigration. That amounts to 2.5 million extra households in the UK.

Besides Malta, England is now the most crowded country in Europe and the fourth most major crowded country in the world.

As these facts continue to show unrelenting UK Immigration growth, independent UK Immigration Barristers services continue to thrive as the UKBA struggles to keep up. Many of these services offer the ideal alternative to applying directly as customers don't have to deal with reams of paperwork, long telephone calls and decreasing service standards.

Despite Governmental efforts to decrease UK Immigration numbers, the current number of applications per year remains steady. In part, this is down to the help provided by independent services, which provide help to their clients when applying for a UK Visa.

The industry sector is certainly growing and immigrants to the UK are experiencing the benefits of utilising the expertise of these companies as they are able to bypass direct application to the UKBA. This means many people applying for UK Visas are not left struggling to fill out paperwork or having to endure lengthy waiting times and increased costs.

In 61% of cases UK Visa applications are refused (Source - Office of National Statistics) if an applicant has tried to apply without seeking expert help. Therefore, the benefits of using a third party service has served tremendously well for people looking to gain entry to the UK as they can call on expert help and get someone else to do the hard work for them.
