Take their word for it…

“Thank you for all your help! You have made this process so much easier for me!” Alexandra B, Settlement: Wife, USA

“I highly recommend Nikki de Prey´s immigration consulting service. Nikki navigates this domain with consumate ease and in a very personalised manner. At the end of our consutation I was 100% clear on the process, the visa, timings, documents and pre-requistes. Super impressed. Thanks Nikki”  Darren C., Settlement: Wife, Colombia

“We consulted with Nikki to help make the process of obtaining a spousal visa clearer. We certainly got that! Nikki helped us dissect a seemingly complicated process into manageable and clear steps and we couldn’t recommend her more highly as a result.” Rachel and Michael L, Settlement: Husband, South Africa

“Nikki is one of the most professional person I have come across. Very flexible and supportive throughout my ILR and dependent visa for my wife.” Nish D, Indefinite Leave to Remain from Tier 2 plus dependant

“We are so relieved, and can’t thank you enough for all your advice and reassuring guidance through this process. I’m not sure we would have survived without your help!” Taya A and Andy C, Settlement: Husband, Australia

“We have been working with Nikki for 2 times already – on the initial application for the spouse visa and the second step. Both times she was highly professional and helpful. She helped to organise the documents as they should be and gave advices on the order, which I saw, really helped on the application day. I never met such an accurate and nice advisor. We surely know that the next time we will ask Nikki for help again.  Thank you very much!!!” Veronika and Jamie, Further Leave to Remain as a partner making an in-person application

“Hi Nikki. Just wanted to let you know that I  got my visa today. Thank God for  you and your selfless  help. You are truly a wonderful  person. I  wish I could  give you a massive  Hug!!! Thank you.” Robert W, Settlement: spouse, USA

“Nikki made a potentially very stressful visa application process as smooth as possible. Her experience in the field, calm demeanor, and quick responses we always so helpful and reassuring. Nikki is honestly a lifesaver and saved us from having to apply for a visa twice and wasting almost £2,000. So grateful for her guidance and reassurance through the process and being so easy to work with! Have already recommended her to others and wouldn’t hesitate to contact her in 2.5 years when I get to do this all again.” Katy J, Settlement: spouse, USA

“We got it and she said ‘Your application is fantastic I wish they were all like this’.”  Audrei and Declan S, UK, Further Leave to Remain as a partner making an in-person application

“Hi Nikki, everything went great.  The examiner said it was her ‘best first case ever’! As we were so organised.  A big Thank You.”  Paul and Cynthia McC, Further Leave to Remain as a partner making an in-person application (holding the first appointment of the day)

“Adam and I cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done!  You’ve quickly and concisely answered all of our questions, provided amazing feedback and were very well informed about everything!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!”               Sarah K, UK, Further Leave to Remain as a partner

“Nikki was a lifesaver! My husband is a UK citizen who had been working in the US for a number of years. When a job opportunity arose for him in the UK, we assumed it would be easy for me to get approval to join him. After all, we’d been married in the UK and the marriage visa process was a bit convoluted but fairly simple to negotiate. We rented a home in London and rented out our US house—and then I was rejected for not providing sufficient documentation that our marriage was valid and that we had the means to support ourselves. We turned to an immigration solicitor who took a very long time to do very little and seemed annoyed when we asked questions. Luckily, we found Nikki, who walked us through the whole process and calmed my nerves along the way. She cheerfully answered the silliest of questions and made sure that we walked through every bit of documentation before I sent the package off the second time. Nikki said she thought I would get my visa around the end of September and it was issued on 22 September. She has been an absolute joy to work with. Thank you, Nikki! I’m now in London, reunited with my husband and our cats.”  Sue C, Settlement: Spouse, USA

You have been a life saver. A beacon of clarity in a fog of complexity. Thank you.” Richmond and Minh, Settlement: Unmarried Partner, Philippines

“I’m British born, but went travelling to Australia when I was in my early twenties and met my Australian husband to be over there. I settled in Australia and received permanent residency.

Unfortunately, my dad back home in England was diagnosed with terminal cancer and of course I wanted to return home to be with him and bring my partner with me. Looking on forums and speaking to various immigration ‘experts’ before Nikki gave me anxiety and added to the stress in my life.

Luckily I came across Nikki’s website and she was amazing to talk to and so ‘normal’ – really down to earth, but with professional in-depth knowledge.

Although I had to move back to England prior to my partner in order to get a job and meet the financial requirements, Nikki helped us with the application and he was able to move over six months later (he visited twice in that time so it wasn’t too bad!) We were able to spend the next 10 months spending time with my dad and planning our wedding before having an amazing wedding day. Sadly my dad passed away two weeks after our wedding, but I’m forever thankful that we were able to all spend that time together and get married in the UK.

My husband and I are now planning to stay in the UK (he likes the pubs!) and we will definitely use Nikki again to help us extend his spouse visa before he can get permanent residency. For me, one of the best things about Nikki is that every few months I will have a freak out about something, e.g. have a question about the next visa and she always comes back to me straightaway and is really lovely and helpful.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nikki to anybody.”  Helen W, Settlement: Unmarried Partner, Australia

“I got my viiiisaaaa!!!!! Shed a tear in the visa centre I was so relieved.  Thanks so much for all your time I really found it very cool working with you.”  Gavin H, Settlement: spouse, South Africa

Thank you for your help and advice throughout the process. It was very helpful that you offered flexible rates at the beginning, rather than an expensive set fee, as quoted by the other immigration solicitors to whom I enquired. I knew that I could put most of the application together myself but the helping hand and guidance defintely helped.” Dermot T, Settlement: spouse, Qatar

“I’ve really enjoyed working with you–your professionalism and expertise have been wonderful.” Susie S, Academic Visitor, USA 

“It goes without saying that we have valued your guidance greatly over the last few months.  I don’t think we would have made it without you!  So thank you.” Russell W, UK, Further Leave to Remain as a partner

“I highly recommend Nikki de Prey and her services.  Nikki helped me initially with many questions and then her document review service, where she reviewed both my documents and my wife’s documents before submitting for a spouse visa application.  Thanks to Nikki, the whole process went very smoothly.  Once submitted, we were not contacted by immigration to submit any additional information and the application took just 3 weeks.  Anyone undergoing these types of situations knows that there is a lot of uncertainty and stress.  The best thing you can do is to use the services of someone like Nikki who knows the system inside out, rather than trying to pick information from amateur websites and forums which are a festering ground for negativity!” Paul McC, USA, Settlement: spouse

“I highly recommend using Nikki de Prey’s services when applying for a UK visa. We would not have known all the documents we needed to send without her help. She made this complicated process go smoothly for us, and I will definitely use her help again when we renew our visas.” Kamie B, USA, Tier 1: Entrepreneur

“Over the past few years, Nikki has consulted on three successful visa applications on behalf of myself and my wife. Her insight and attention to detail has proven invaluable in each case. However, most notable was how she was always available with expert advice, even in the face of unexpected complications. We strongly recommend de Prey Consulting and intend to retain their services for all of our future immigration needs.”  Jon and Emily F., Canada, Tier 2 and Tier 5

“I applied for spouse visa on 29th January 2015 and received an email on 5th February 2015 that the decision was made and the passport was dispatched. I had to wait till 7th February 2015 for the passport to get delivered. I have never heard anyone getting spouse visa within 5 working days! It’s no less than a miracle for me and my family 🙂

When I was planning to apply for visas, the documents they asked for especially the financial documents were making me crazy.  It all looked almost impossible. But Nikki had been assisting and guiding on every step, making the process so smooth. She is very patient, helpful, cooperative, knowledgeable and hardworking. Her quick replies, positive and friendly attitude kept me in relief all the time.

It’s difficult to trust someone online but Nikki is 100% genuine. I definitely recommend her. I can’t thank her enough.

THANKS A LOT NIKKI FOR EVERYTHING! Things would never have been so easy without YOU.”  Mrs Naznin Q, India, Settlement: Wife

“We just successfully received the spouse visa. Thank you very much, Nikki and de Prey Consulting for the high-levelled professionalism, human kindness and personal relation. We are now happy and genuinely recommend  to everybody!” Veronika K, UK, Further Leave to Remain as a Spouse

“We would highly recommend Nikki and de Prey Consulting to assist with your visa application. She was instrumental in ensuring my visa came through in time to be with my husband for the birth of our first child. It literally would not have happened without her. She saved us time and money and was invaluable in answering all the questions we had. She knows the system inside and out and we couldn’t have done it without her.”  Ali JJ, Canada, Settlement: Wife 

My daughter and I were trying to get settlement visas, but we had run into a few serious problems as a result of my mistakes and the confusion of working with UK immigration.  I contacted Nikki as we were in a difficult  position and needed help to get things back on track in a very short time frame.  Nikki was extremely responsive, helpful  and knowledgeable as she guided us through putting together the information needed to be successful.  At one point, when there were serious concerns about one of the problems we faced, she took the time to review my information in detail and was able to figure out the critical piece of information needed to ensure the financial requirements were met based on immigration’s conditions.  Given the potential for a refusal, she absolutely came through for us.  I wholeheartedly recommend Nikki, she is fantastic.”  Ken D, USA, Settlement: Husband and Child

My wife and I were recently successful in applying for her UK settlement visa and we couldn’t have achieved this result without the invaluable support Nikki provided to us. At every stage of what turned out to be a nine month long process, Nikki provided us with step-by-step instructions and answered all our questions in a clear, logical and prompt manner. In my opinion, Nikki’s previous experience of working for the UKBA is a priceless asset that her clients can benefit from. This inside knowledge allowed her to advise us on exactly what information was going to be critical to the application, and which details we could safely leave out. She advised on exactly what the visa processing staff were going to be looking for, and how to present our application accordingly. As many people reading this will be aware, applying for a visa is a very stressful activity. Whilst it is impossible to completely remove stress from the process, Nikki’s support allowed us to remain relatively calm throughout. She is highly personable and provided us with constant reassurance. In addition, she has strength in her convictions – not once did she sit on the fence when we had a query, she always advised on a course of action. For any future visa requirements that we have, we would always come back to Nikki. Thank you!”  Jon and Vivian, Peru, Settlement: spouse visa

“Thanks Nikki. For EVERYTHING. For being professional, quick, diligent, something akin to a therapist (!!), and just an all round LEGEND.” Phil and Katherine, USA, Settlement: Marriage visa

“Back in 2012 my American girlfriend came to stay with me in my home in the UK for 6 months. Little did we know at the time to book a 6 month trip would raise a red flag with immigration at the airport and we had to go through an 8 hour ordeal where they kept her in the holding tank until they were sure we were not doing anything wrong and that they believed that she would return to America.

Our long term goal was for her to live here in the UK but we had no idea what was involved in getting her a visa and after our ordeal at the airport we were pretty terrified of immigration. After doing lots of research online, reading many forums with conflicting advice and many tales of how people were rejected for all kinds of reasons we finally found de Prey Consulting. I was concerned at first that we wouldn’t be able to afford her help but Nikki turned out to be invaluable to us. Not only was she very affordable, but by using her services I believe she has saved us thousands! There are so many stories out there of people who have tried to save a little money by going through the visa application process alone only to be rejected, losing all the money they spent on their visa application. Then they have to go through the expense all over again for the next application attempt. This is why I cannot recommend Nikki enough! If you are considering applying for a visa look no further as she will help you put together an application that will succeed as long as you meet the criteria.

Not only is Nikki affordable she is also extremely detailed, patient and caring. Due to our circumstances it took us almost a year to reach the point where we were able to put our application in. Throughout that year I asked Nikki countless questions, whenever we were worried, she was there to put our minds at ease. It was a long laborious process but we got there! I know we wouldn’t have been able to do it without Nikki’s help. If you look online at the information available to you it is incredibly confusing even on the governments official website. Nikki made everything crystal clear. We will definitely be using Nikki’s services when we have to apply for the second visa in a couple of years. Thanks to Nikki’s help, my now wife and I are finally living together, with no worries of whether we will get to spend our lives together or not.  We are confident that we will be approved the second round with Nikki’s assistance and would highly recommend her services to avoid any unnecessary stress.

We would like to thank Nikki for helping us to achieve our dreams!”  Cherie B, USA, Settlement: Wife

“Without reservation I would wholeheartedly recommend Nikki de Prey for help with any Visa application for the UK, especially if you applying under a specialised and unique visa like my Tier 5 Creative and Sportive Visa.  Nikki provided excellent advice on the best strategy for gaining a new sponsor and dealing with the difficult process of applying for another work permit with a new modelling agency, that had never sponsored an international model in the past. Nikki meticulously reviewed the details of the sponsorship license and work permit application, making sure that there were no errors or inconsistencies that would delay processing, and she prepared very clear written instructions for me to follow at various points in the process.  As it turned out I had unpredictable challenges and delays in my situation that required excellent knowledge of immigration law, quick thinking, and appropriate action. Nikki  provided all of these and patiently guided me through these hurdles to a very successful outcome!  She is professional, courteous, approachable, prompt at returning calls, responding to email, and answering questions. I also appreciated that she was straightforward and clear about fees at the beginning of the process, and there were no surprises.  I would like to thank Nikki for all her help with this stressful situation, as I truly believe that I would not have successfully been able to stay in the UK without Nikki’s help.”  Kayko A, USA, Tier 5: Creative and Sporting visa

“Before choosing the visa consultant I sent 300 e-mails to all consultants in the authorised consultants list, during the first 6 hours received 200 replies – and found that you are the most trustworthy consultant.  I was right!”  Tonia S, Russia, Representative of an Overseas Business visa

“The e-mail arrived today to confirm the Visa has been issued ‘YAY’ 🙂 and will be here in one working day. We should be able to pick it up on Monday. Just over three months of laughter and tears what a roller coaster ride that was. We would both like to thank you for guiding us through the mine field of paper work and sorting out every detail down to the last full stop. Without your help it would have been a very different story, thank you again Nikki for giving our story a very happy end.” Michael and Satsuki B, Japan, Settlement: spouse visa

“A big thanks to Nikki for helping me get my UK Spouse Visa without any stress! To begin with, I had contacted a dozen different immigration advisers/agents and I wasn’t happy to proceed with any of them even after having spent several weeks communicating with them. I was very lucky to have finally come across Nikki’s contact details as she was one of the recommended immigration advisers mentioned by UKBA. I immediately contacted her, as I was applying for UK Spouse Visa from within UK. Throughout my communication with her, she was warm, responsible, fast and super efficient. She is a very good listener, someone you can completely trust to do a great job for you. She is just what we needed! Unlike dozens of other immigration advisers and agents who charge a very high fee for a full service even if you don’t really require a full service, Nikki was highly professional and fair as she quickly assessed that I didn’t need a full service on my visa application. She rightly offered me a super affordable hourly fee to help me with my visa application. All it took me was a few emails between us and an hour long meeting during which she thoroughly assessed all my documents and my application form. She gave me the right advice which helped me in getting my UK Spouse Visa with no stress. My husband and I are thoroughly happy with her service and we strongly recommend her.” Rashmi K, UK, Further Leave to Remain as a Spouse

“I wanted to commend you, Nikki, for your sincerity, expertise, and savvy. You provided the details that made my Priority Settlement application get approved the first time.  Your winning combination of knowledge, empathy and downright common sense make you worth every (reasonable) penny you charge.  I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Completely thrilled to be going back to Britain, the place that feels most like home. Many thanks.” Jacqueline G, USA, Settlement: spouse visa

“I can’t thank you enough for all the amazing work and effort you’ve done.  I am so grateful and impressed by the service you provide.” Caitlin S, USA, Tier 4 student visa

“There are a number of characteristics that differentiate Nikki from alternative service providers in the market:

  1. Because she worked for the UKBA for years she knows what makes them tick. She knows how they think and how to work within their framework to achieve the desired outcome.
  2. She is responsive.  My wife’s visa was denied and, despite the fact I had worked with another service provider initially, Nikki was super responsive and took calls at pretty much any hour to get the job done.
  3. She cares.  I felt like Nikki was affected by my circumstances at a level that was genuine.  She made personal sacrifices to talk to me, and she put her words into action every time it counted.

As a result of my experience I can say without hesitation that Nikki has the professional expertise and personal commitment to make a positive difference to your visa process.”  Paul J, UK, Settlement: spouse visa

“I loved working with Nikki – she picked up all my calls, listened to my million questions, held my hand while we tried to figure out how to do everything in 5 days, and ultimately got me over the finish line in the nick of time.  Highly recommended!  Thanks Nikki.”  Anna S, UK, Tier 1: General visa extension

“Thank you soooo much for all of your help….You are a lifesaver.  And now I can visit my boyfriend, which is all I ever wanted to do!  I cannot begin to thank you enough.  But I’ll still say it, thank you!”  Lucie B, USA, visit visa

“OMG!! Thank you soooo much for all your help! I can’t bellieve it! I’m getting my life back 🙂 thanks thanks thanks.” Lindsay S, USA, Tier 2 dependant visa

“I  got to tell ya how much I appreciate the good job you did for getting my visa. Thanks alot…. You proved to me last year that you were more about helping folks like me than you were about just making money, and that means alot, thanks again.”  Nolon M, USA, visit visa

“I just wanted to say ‘Thank You’ very much for your help and giving me the confidence to actually try traveling.  You have a great service and if ever I or anyone I know needs your type of help I will be certain to pass on your info.” Lou, USA, visit

“WE DID IT!!!! I’m coming back!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your help and guidance. I couldn’t have done it without you.” Meredith A, USA, Tier 1: Post-Study Work visa

“Over the past six months, as I’ve struggled with all aspects of launching my own sole proprietor consultancy, I’ve come across a number of people in different fields doing the same thing.  Some do it better than others.  de Prey Consulting does it better than most.  Sitting here in your target audience, I can tell you that de Prey Consulting comes across as extremely well managed. The scripts are well written and informative.  The layouts are clean.  The value proposition is clear.  And most importantly, you come across as deeply knowledgeable, confident, professional, and friendly.  That’s a tough mix to accomplish.” Patrick C, USA

“A few weeks ago we got the fantastic news that HY has a visa! We both feel really indebted to you for all your patient advice. You made a really nerve-racking procedure much less stressful.” Giles A, Suffolk, UK – settlement visa
