Do I have to pay? Website and e-mail information is free of charge but there is a charge for using the telephone service.
Where can I get advice? Worldbridge Service and its staff cannot give you advice on how to complete your application, or what type of visa you should apply for. If you need help with your application or advice about the UK's immigration rules and requirements, you should seek advice from a qualified immigration adviser. In the UK these are immigration advisers regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) or legally qualified professionals regulated by designated professional bodies. Their websites are:
Law Society of England and Wales Law Society of Scotland Law Society of Northern Ireland Institute of Legal Executives

Who decides whether I will get a visa? Your visa application will be processed and decided by UK Border Agency staff.
