Do you provide immigration services? We might visit you this summer

From June to August our Supervision team will visit a random cross-section of barristers who provide immigration advice and services in chambers. We are gathering information for our upcoming review. If you are selected, we will send you details in advance.

We want to find out more about the market for immigration advice and services - identifying examples of good practice as well as areas for improvement. We will be talking to as many people as possible - from barristers, to consumer organisations, to the public and other regulators.

Our review will look at  how the market for immigration advice and services by barristers operates, including whether there is unmet demand, and the experiences of people who use these services.  We want to find out where our regulation could work more effectively so we can focus our efforts to best serve the public interest.

We will send a separate online survey to a larger, random sample of barristers who provide immigration services.

Later in 2015 we will publish the information we have gathered, recommending what we need to do to manage any identified risks.
