UK Immigration Services
About DIY UK
Well how did we get where we are today?
Perseverance and old fashioned hard work
Our story is one of perseverance and old fashioned hard work! It began in 2005 when an opportunity arose for our founding member Andrew Williams to set up and manage his own niche immigration practice, serving clients in and around West Yorkshire.
Immigration advisers market place
In 2005 when we entered the immigration advisers market we were registered with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioners. At that time there were very few firms in the private Immigration sector so we did not know what to expect.
With success comes those who seek to undermine all your achievements
Also know as ‘ haters’, we ignored the haters and our business went from strength to strength. From 2005 to 2011 we maintained our focus and continued to serve our clients. In April 2011 our business became a Solicitors practice regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
Our popularity went from strength to strength
Between 2011 and 2017 our popularity grew and we were instructed by more clients each year. As a result we expanded our business, took on more staff and achieved better results for our clients.
We successfully represented over 150 clients
Within 12 months we had successfully represented over 150 clients and we were becoming recognised within the West Yorkshire area as a reputable and reliable immigration practice that fought for its clients. As a result of our determined approach to our clients’ applications and appeals we were soon inundated with more and more clients.
We recognised a need for affordable access to the best private immigration lawyers.
Although, our business continued to grow we were becoming increasingly concerned about turning away clients who could not afford our services. We started to recognise that there was an urgent need to provide affordable access to the best private immigration lawyers and as a result of that need DIY UK Immigration Service was set up.
APPLY the smart way. IT really makes sense.
What do we do?
We provide everything you need to reach your UK immigration goals and aspirations.

What don’t we provide?
At present we do not provide direct assistance with completing UK Visa & Immigration online applications forms. We do however, provide guidance on how to complete the forms. We also provide a checking service under our legal help services where you can instruct an immigration adviser to check your application for you and provide independent advice. As an alternative UK Visa and Immigration also provide a service called Assisted Digital. Assisted Digital is available to customers who do not have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to complete an online immigration application form.
