“Businesses can sometimes find it difficult if they are new to the immigration system and these seminars will simplify everything they need to know, including the changes recently implemented. We are pleased that the UK Border Agency sees the benefit in offering such invaluable advice. It is also a good opportunity for businesses of a similar nature to share experiences and contacts.”
