UK Immigration Lawyers Iraqi Nationals

Having assisted thousands of clients with living and settling in the UK

Westkin Associates have the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience needed to help you relocate to the UK, swiftly and stress-free.

We are most aware of the current political situation in Iraq and we welcome any queries or questions Iraqi nationals may have in relation to possibly making the UK their new home. Having worked with clients who need to deal with the British Embassy in Baghdad and Erbil, our UK immigration lawyers are familiar with the processes of ensuring a positive outcome for your visa application. We have noted that the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) and Tier 1 (Investor) visas are particularly popular for Iraqi nationals at the moment.

Based in the heart of London, our offices in prestigious Mayfair are conveniently situated to ensure we are easily accessible to all new and existing clients. As well as the usual telephone, e-mail and fax functionalities, we also offer Skype conferencing to ensure we can communicate effectively and efficiently. For more details about our bespoke services, please visit our website through the following link:

To see whether or not you would qualify, we have summarised a few of the main points required for these visas:

Tier 1 (Entrepreneur)

• Minimum £200,000 of investment funds available;

• Evidence of sufficient maintenance;

• Evidence of being a “genuine entrepreneur”;

• Sufficient grasp of the English language; and

• TB Test Certificate.

Tier 1 (Investor)

• Access to £1million (GBP) or more;

• Evidence of source of funds (if applicable); and

• TB Test Certificate.

Our UK Immigration Lawyers in London handle such applications every day and are well-experienced to ensure your visa is granted, so long as you meet all the requirements under the UK Immigration Rules.

Over the years of experience we have acquired by practising and leading the industry, our services include providing our clients with a detailed, tailor-made list of documents in order to ensure the paperwork they gather is relevant to their case.

In order to place our mark of quality on the application, we provide detailed legal representations that set out the requirements of the law for the particular visa being applied for. This would be the “legal protection” we would be placing on the visa application to ensure the Entry Clearance Officer does not pick out points of the law as we would have already covered them in great depth. Our legal representations would be printed on our letter-headed paper and signed by one of our Senior Lawyers.

We also project manage the process so that deadlines are met and that the matter is handled professionally and without any nasty surprises. Westkin Associate’s Managing Director, Amir Zaidi travels to Baghdad and Erbil regularly for business. For more information about our team, please visit:

Our UK immigration specialists will be delighted to discuss the questions you may have about residing in the UK. Please feel free to call us on +44(0)207 118 8005 or to e-mail us at where one of our Senior Lawyers will be in contact with you within 24 working hours.

To help with the relocation, we can also link you to our extensive professional network that can assist with all aspects of the move, including setting up a UK business, accountancy and tax planning, property searches and other services. Please feel free to ask and we will ensure we do our upmost to make the process as smooth as possible.
