    • Student Visa: Available to the family or dependants of someone who holds a student visa or has recently graduated with a post-study stay-back. This varies depending on which country you study abroad in, but visa typically allows the holder to work full-time.
    • Skilled worker: Available to the family or dependants of someone who holds a working visa for another country. If you are sponsored as a worker in healthcare, you can apply for your entire family to come and join you to visit or to live, work and go to school.

    “ I am one of the oldest customers of Universal. I approached universal for carrier guidance to select the right stream soon after my study. The proper guidance I have got then has helped me to settle in my life. Now I have a big list of visas I have processed through Universal that includes my work permit, my partner’s visa, my child’s UK passport, my family PR, my UK Citizenship, and now my parent’s long term visit visa. It is a long journey with Universal since 2006 and I can blindly recommend them to any person for the quality service they are providing for the last 10 years. ”
