Immigration advice for businesses

Kidd Rapinet has a history of specialisation in Immigration Law. Over the past 30 years we have built up a reputation for success. We have established an excellent working relationship with the United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) and can offer expert legal and practical advice to help guide you through the complex system.

Whether you want to come to the United Kingdom (UK) or remain here for residence through investment, relationships, study or business, Kidd Rapinet LLP’s solicitors are perfectly placed to help you make the right application. We can assist businesses and individuals with all aspects of the application process from the initial application to residence and the acquisition of British Citizenship and a British passport. We assist private and business clients to make applications from outside and inside the UK. This includes dealing with British High Commissions and British Embassies around the world.


Preparing for your first meeting

Preparing for your first meeting

When you need immigration advice quickly, it helps to come prepared.  We recommend bringing the following information to your initial consultation:

  • Documents relating to citizenship: current passport, current visa, birth certificate/s for children, marriage/civil partnership certificate, certificate of incorporation for a company, business bank statements.

To instruct us, we would require the following:

  • For the company, partnership or trust which is to be our client: Certificate of incorporation (where applicable) showing the current name of the entity and Memorandum and Articles of Association, Partnership Agreement, LLP Agreement, Trust Deed or other constitutional document.
  • For each of the natural persons instructing us on its behalf and each beneficiary (meaning a shareholder or ultimate beneficial owner, partner or trust beneficiary who has an interest of 25% or more, or who has or exercises control): Documentary confirmation of that person’s status on behalf of the client, e.g. directorship, partnership, trusteeship, power of attorney plus the evidence for individuals below.
