Great service. My father who is british citizen and we had dependant category visa(me,my sister,my mother).By the time when our 30 months of dependent visa gonna be expired we consulted Jay visva solicitors and we had crucial chance of getting visa extended because my mother only spent 6 months here in england, my sister just a month.
we were really worried but Jay visva solicitors guided us through the process brilliantly,they submitted few perfectly explained letters to home office which is the reason for our visa renewal without any trouble.The visa arrived on 7th week after application submission date.I Highly recommend Jay visva solicitors.”
