Iryna Fetisova


“My experience of dealing with Global has been excellent..”

~ Charlie Gilkeson



Charlie Gilkeson is a teacher in Wakefield who first contacted for help with a fiancée visa so that his partner, Iryna Fetisova, who is Ukrainian, could join him in the UK. When talking to Charlie we were surprised at how well he seemed to know the Immigration Rules, but in conversation Charlie said that though he knew what was needed, this was too important to take a chance with, and so he wanted a professional to handle their case.

We worked with Charlie to get all his documents ready, and then Iryna applied for entry clearance so that she could come to the UK to marry Charlie.  We have since acted for Iryna and Charlie in Iryna’s subsequent applications to the Home Office, but we have never met either of them, as they live in Wakefield and we are based in London! Fortunately with phones, email and Skype, you no longer need to be able to go into an office to have a lawyer working for you.

This is what Charlie had to say when we asked him for a testimonial:

“After talking to a number of companies’ who specialises in immigration matters, I chose to ask Global Immigration Solutions to help and advise me in this matter.

I think that it is very important to have the latest information due to the rapid change in government legislation and more importantly to be able to talk to an adviser who knows the legislation ‘inside out’. Yes it’s true that you can download all the required forms and undertake this task on a DIY basis but when you consider what could be at stake I would definitely not recommend this route.

My experience of dealing with Global has been excellent. Most of the time I have worked with Asha and I have always found her to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, helpful and very efficient. She knows the legislative process backwards which I found very reassuring.

In my experience many companies have a flashy website with nothing more than a DIY approach – you only have to look at the vast amount of up-to-date information on Global’s website to know you are in the right place.

I would recommend Global’s professional services to anybody needing help with immigration matters.”
