Woodcock Law & Notary Public assists with the visa needs of many Indian nationals who wish to come to the UK.

Recent data shows India is the UK’s main feeder of immigrants. Visas issued to Indians over the last year range from Visitor Visas to Skilled Worker Visas.

In particular, the Student Visa has consistently proven popular amongst Indian nationals, who had 118,000 of the visas granted in the last year. The increase shows a sign that immigration levels are returning to numbers more consistent with pre-pandemic levels.

How we can help you

India is part of the Hague Convention, which means that the documents you want to use in India can be issued with an apostille, which makes them recognisable to other countries’ authorities.

Countries that are not part of the Hague convention such as China, for example, require documents to be legalised by both their UK-based embassy, and the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO). In these cases, apostilles would not be applicable.

Some documents that often need notarisation and legalisation for our Indian clients include the following:


Woodcock Law and Notary Public can help you obtain both an FCDO apostille, and embassy legalisation for your documents.

Student and Skilled Worker Visas

Student and Skilled Worker Visas are two of the most popular visas amongst Indian nationals looking to come to the UK. The Student Visa allows you to study in the UK and take on limited paid work, while the Skilled Worker Visa allows you to come and work under a Sponsor Licence.

If you are considering applying for one of these visas, you’ll need to submit your passport as part of your application.
