At South Derbyshire Citizens Advice Bureau we can give initial advice on many aspects of immigration such as: visitor visas, fiance(e)/spouse visas, student visas, settlement visas, work permits, immigration status, welfare benefits, asylum seekers and refugees.
For more complex cases it may be necessary for us to arrange a referal to a specialist agency.
