UK Graduate Visa for Student from Chile

Contents | Show more +

My sister and I are inseparable. After college, I decided to study at a British university, and Alisha followed me here. Our parents supported us. Of course, we enjoyed studying and living in the UK. However, I completed my university course earlier than Alisha. I did not want to leave her alone in the UK and started thinking about switching to another visa category. Imperial & Legal helped us.

Imperial & Legal’s clients often recommend us to their friends and family. We are always happy to help with relocation to the United Kingdom and finding a job here.

Nahitan and Alisha, siblings from Chile, were also referred to us by their friends. They studied at a UK university and, at a certain point, they had questions about immigration and sought professional help.

Our Clients

Alisha and Nahitan are from Chile. They are siblings and get along well. Nahitan came to the UK first and is already completing his degree in international maritime law at a British university, and. Alisha came to the UK a year later. She is studying the interior design of cafes, restaurants, and other public places. She has one more year of her university course left.

Nahitan does not want to leave his sister alone in the UK. Therefore he plans to switch to another visa category, start his career in a British company, and support Alisha. However, he only heard about a UK Skilled Worker visa. Unfortunately, he cannot apply for it since he has not found a sponsor yet.

Having discussed the case with the siblings, Imperial & Legal’s advisors recommended Nahitan apply for a UK Graduate visa.

The Challenge

To prepare the required documents and apply for a UK Graduate visa.

The Solution

With a UK Graduate visa, a student who completes a university course in the UK can stay in the country, find a job, or set up a company here.

The UK government benefits from this visa category in two ways. Firstly, the country gets highly motivated and proactive young specialists with brilliant education who have already integrated into the UK. Secondly, all applicants for a UK Graduate visa have high academic records and speak English fluently.

However, this immigration route appeals not only to the UK government but also to foreign students since they get a unique opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge on a big and highly competitive British market. The UK government trusts graduates to find a job in the UK or set up their own business here. Unlike other immigration routes, you won’t have to show your finances to get a UK Graduate visa.

Nahitan hopes to get employed by one of the transnational companies with headquarters in London. But before he is, he will continue working as a legal assistant which he has been doing all the time he was studying.

Imperial & Legal’s legal advisors made sure that Nahitan’s university complies with all the requirements for a UK Graduate visa. His university has a sponsorship licence that allows it to teach foreign students.

Our legal advisors contacted Nahitan’s department and got an official confirmation that he had completed a full university course. We prepared all the required documents, including a valid passport, a biometric residence card, and a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). After that, we applied for a UK Graduate visa to the Home Office.

The Conclusion

Nahitan gets his UK Graduate visa which is a huge relief for the siblings. He can now stay in the UK for two more years with his sister. Who knows, in two years, he might start working as a lawyer himself and settle in the UK for good.

Alisha might also want to apply for a UK Graduate visa after she completes her university course. We will be glad to welcome our young friendly clients back into our company.
