Applying on behalf for advisers and agents

Advisers can submit visa applications online on behalf of their clients. This service is part of an extension of Immigration Online, our online platform.

Who can apply on behalf

Licensed immigration advisers and people exempt from licensing can submit visa applications online on behalf of their clients.

Other people like employers or education providers may be able to complete a visa application on behalf of an applicant. They can only do this if it’s part of their job to do so, they record only information given to them by the applicant, and they don’t provide any immigration advice. We call this ‘clerical work’.

You can visit the Immigration Advisers Authority’s website for more information about licensing, exemptions, and clerical work.
