Immigration & Asylum

If you need the services of an immigration specialist to help resolve an immigration, nationality or asylum issue, please contact us today. 
Navigating your way through complex UK immigration law and policy is a daunting prospect. Excel Solicitors & Advocates will help dispel the fear people often face in challenging Home Office decisions and in exercising their rights as lawful residents in the UK whatever the circumstances of their 'leave' might be. 
Our clients are at the forefront of how we operate and we need to continue to anticipate what they will face next, adapt to the changes of immigration law and procedure in the UK and provide them with the very best people, processes and solutions.

Giving oral evidence to the Constitution Committee of the House of Lords in December 2016, Sir Ernest Ryder, the Senior President of Tribunals, explains the pace of change and the layering of complexity in immigration law:

"We have had eight immigration Acts in 12 years, three EU directives and approximately 30 statutory instruments. The Immigration Rules themselves have been amended 97 times over the same period, which is approximately eight times a year, and are four times larger, and in a smaller typeface, than they were 10 years ago. The Immigration Rules no longer contain all or indeed most of the policy that is to be implemented, which is of course their primary purpose. The policy is separately provided in—if I may say so—rather dense and unconsolidated guidance that one can access through the Home Office website, but that generally does not show you the previously existing guidance on the same topic, or how the guidance has changed. If you are an unwitting litigant whose first language is not English and you have no recourse to public funding, because this is an immigration case, not an asylum case, your chances of accessing any of that material and putting it together in a coherent way are negligible."

Asylum, Human Rights & Appeals


We have Immigration solicitors who specialise in asylum law. If you have been detained in a detention centre or prison pending a decision, we may also be able to make an application for bail on your behalf. We offer a 24 hour hotline for emergency cases so we can provide you with legal assistance outside office hours. We consider the following issues when reviewing our cases and the options available to you 

  1. Applying for asylum

  2. Human Rights Applications

  3. Unaccompanied Minors

  4. Appeals

  5. Advocacy / Upper Tribunal

  6. Judicial Review

  7. Reuniting refugees with their family members


Detention & the Fast Track Process

  1. Applying for bail (immigration detention)

  2. Detained asylum seekers

  3. Unlawful detention – Immigration – Claim for Damages


Business/Corporate Immigration

If you employ a foreign national or are seek to do so, you will need to know whether or not they have the right to work in the UK. Our immigration solicitors can advise you on the status of your employees and how you can sponsor them should it be required.

Unlike OISC immigration service providers, we are fully authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority - all of our cases are handled by qualified solicitors from the outset. Our advocacy service ensures that clients are able to instruct us to appear at Tribunals and in the Immigration & Asylum chamber.

We provide fixed fee prices on application, so please contact us today. We encourage prospective clients to contact us in writing wherever possible, to streamline the consultation process.
