The Consultation & Onboarding Process
Lets Go Global shall provide an in depth Consultation, with your Consultant and Case Manager. Our Case management team is highly qualified with the required skills, expertise, experience and/or qualifications to provide you with the expert care your case will require.
During your Consultation with you it is important you disclose everything that may affect, whether directly or indirectly, your case and which you may later rely upon or the Government Authorities may discover through their own investigations. Lets Go Global relies heavily upon this information and has the opportunity to establish the facts of your case based on the information you have provided. In the event that you omit information or provide information that is not accurate, complete or correct, this may well have a negative bearing on your case or lead to time delays and issues achieving your desired outcome.
Lets Go Global will endeavor to ascertain your case history from you and based upon the information that you provide any circumstances that may affect a successful outcome. Each case is unique and dealt with according to its own unique merits.
There will be a comprehensive case review and technical assessment. During which, Lets Go Global will identify the particularities of your case and then scrutinize them against the current laws, policies and procedures of the Governments Authorities and its Officers. Lets Go Global shall provide advice through its team of Case Managers. You will be advised upon the immigration options available to you. Upon case activation you will be given a detailed list of documents you will be required to produce to support your case as well as detailed definitions of these documents. Lets Go Global will use its knowledge of your unique circumstances to engage you with the right MARA agent or Immigration Lawyer for which we will usually receive a fee.
If at any time Lets Go Global discover any issues that need to be addressed, which would otherwise harm your case, Lets Go Global will offer alternative suggestions and recommendations for an alternative course of action, together with any alternative options available to you, if appropriate. Lets Go Global will inform you at every stage of the process to assist you in making an informed decision regarding your future immigration options.
In all cases, Lets Go Global will use all its reasonable endeavors to make your case as strong as possible and to obtain the result you seek based on the information you have provided. However, it is important to note that Lets Go Global offer advice, and, where appropriate, a professional opinion. Please note, Lets Go Global cannot guarantee the timing and/or success of any application. The success or failure of your visa application is made by the relevant Government Authorities in each and every case.
You acknowledge that you have exercised your own skill and knowledge in determining whether the service provided under this specific agreement meets your specific requirements and you have not relied on any statements or representations made by Lets Go Global or its employees.
In instances where either documentation (for identity, verification or other aspects of your case evidence) or payments (either to ourselves or any third party in relation to the case) remain overdue or are not submitted, we will place the case on hold for 28 days. We will notify the client that the case is ‘on hold’ and during that time no further action will be taken on the case. Should the information remain incomplete or any financial transaction remain unpaid following the 28 day on hold period, we reserve the right to close the case without further recourse nor refund of any monies paid. In cases where despite our best efforts we do not hear from the client for in excess of 28 days nor receive information relating to the case or clients, we reserve the right to close the case on the assumption that the client no longer wishes to proceed. As Immigration is a rapidly changing area, with regular updates and legislative changes, cases cannot be left open indefinitely as advice becomes outdated. Therefore, should the case remain inactive or not formally submitted due to non-compliance by the client in any one 6 month period (ie Jan-July or July to Jan); the advice is deemed outdated and the case is closed to further action.
Neither Lets Go Global nor any of its employees, affiliates, agents, content providers or related companies shall be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages or costs (including legal) arising out of use of the service or inability to gain access to or use the service in full or part.
Every effort has been made to ensure that this agreement complies with the current law. If changes in legislation occur, Lets Go Global will make every effort to correct the information we provide, however we will not be held responsible for delays, cancellations or non-issuance of a visa as a result of legislation changes. By using Lets Go Global you are confirming that you have read and understood the terms and conditions.
Terms of Business Client Care letter
Prior to commencement of work or a referral to an appointed representative Lets Go Global will issue all clients with a client care letter. The letter will list details regarding how the case is to be handled and confirm eligibility based on the information supplied during your consultation.
Charges, Expenses and Payments
We require you to settle the required fees with cleared funds on account before we commence, and undoubtedly, before we complete, your application. We reserve the right to suspend any work on your matter without the payment of your full agreed fee. Should you fail to adhere to an agreed payment plan your case may be suspended and all work on the case may become invalid. Please also note that once you have agreed and paid our fees and had your initial consultation our refund policy below shall apply. We work strictly on a fixed fee basis which will have been agreed with you before we commence any work on your case. Your agreement will be sought on these matters as part of our initial Client Care Letter that will be sent to you.
Lets Go Global operates a very clear and distinct refund policy for all applications. We believe in Treating Clients Fairly, which is one of our founding principles. As you would expect we have to have to apply some caveats so that Clients in turn treat us fairly also.
1. Refunds apply when full payment is made upon confirmation of the agreement. If the payment is on a part payment basis there will be no refund applicable.
2. If full payment is made and your application is rejected, Lets Go Global will refund professional fees paid by you that have not been utilised on the future parts unless your application is rejected due to:
Your failure to meet health criteria, police checks; or
Because you provide false or misleading information; or
If the department or assessment body does not accept your assertions regarding your qualifications, work, business or other aspects as being genuine or unaccredited; or
Should you receive a negative result from the Assessment Authority or any other Government body in relation to your application for any reason, no refund request will be entertained as all applications are on a best endeavour basis, and there is no guarantee of a positive results.
Your failure to meet English requirements; or
If migration legislation/regulations change at any time throughout the procession of your application and adversely effects your application.
If you withdraw your instructions after work has commenced on this application and/or you instruct Lets Go Global to withdraw your visa application after the same has been submitted to the relevant immigration department, assessment bodies or related parties or you fail to provide us with any requested documentation or information within three months of initial request or date set down by any of the relevant bodies. Any professional fees already paid by you as at the date of such withdrawal will be forfeited and this Agreement shall be terminated.
3. Fees Not Refundable on agreement: GBP 1,550 / EUR 2000 / USD 2000 which is the base cost for the starting of a new file. This cost is not refundable under all and all circumstances. Other costs that are not refundable include all disbursements and application fees, i.e, Government fees, Assessment fees, Visa fees, State Sponsorship fees, Postal Mail Courier fees, Translation fees, Statutory Declaration fees and Certification fees. Most third party fees are payable from yourself directly to the third parties and as such subject to their own specific terms and conditions of business. Any refunds or goodwill gestures shall be settled between 28 and 35 days from approval.
Basis of Services
Lets Go Global shall provide and you shall purchase the Services in accordance with the Schedule of Services and Payment Plan subject to these Terms. The Contract shall become binding upon receipt by Lets Go Global of the Activation Payment from you and the service will be deemed to have been delivered immediately in line with current UK consumer contract regulation. Marketing and other descriptive matter relating to Services are illustrative only, and do not form part of the Contract. These Terms and those on the CCL alone will apply to the Contract for the supply of the Services by Lets Go Global to you. These supersede any previously issued terms and conditions. No variation of the Terms or to the Payment Plan or the Services will be binding unless expressly agreed in writing and executed by a duly authorised Director on behalf of Lets Go Global.
From time to time, we may need to incur out of pocket expenses on your behalf, such as for photocopying of large volumes of documents, interpreters fees, and translation of documents, agent fees, travel and accommodation expenses, document preparation expenses, and international telephone charges. We may also from time to time if necessary have to obtain additional advice or opinions on your matter. We state herein that any fees likely to be incurred for the obtaining of additional advice will be notified to you in writing in advance and your consent will be sought. Your consent to paying these additional fees will be placed on your file and a copy of the same will be sent to you for your records.
Lets Go Global free online assessment is a method by which our advisers will be able to have an overview of your case. Our advisers will still need to discuss your case directly with yourself in order to give their realistic personal opinion of your eligibility for any immigration matters. Specific advice can only be given after case commencement, once we are in receipt of all documented evidence.
Unforeseen Work & Reasonable Use
We shall inform you if any unforeseen work becomes necessary, for example, due to unexpected difficulties or if your requirements or the circumstances change significantly during the course of your case. We will advise you in writing of the estimated cost of the extra work before such work is carried out. We will aim to agree an amended charge with you. If we cannot reach agreement, we will do no further work until the matter of costs is settled. We reserve the right to disinstruct ourselves after reasonable efforts have been exhausted. Should we at our sole discretion decide that the balance of work exceeds reasonable hours we will advise you in writing of additional charges and follow the process above. For the avoidance of doubt ‘reasonable’ equates to the normal amount of hours expected for your category and class of visa.
Payments on Account for Disbursements
It is normal practice to ask clients to make payments on account from time to time. These payments help to meet this firm’s expected charges for disbursements and to help avoid delaying progress in the matter. We will then pay expenses for disbursements as they become due. We may request further payments on account of expenses for disbursements as the matter progresses. These amounts will be shown as paid on the Disbursement final bill. Please note that disbursements may be payable to third parties. Please also note that in the event that the matter does not proceed to conclusion you will still need to pay for the disbursements that have arisen. Your consent for the payment of disbursements will be sought before such fees are incurred.
Defaulting and Late Payments
Lets Go Global terminates all applications upon missed/ late payments. A reactivation penalty fee may be applied although reactivation is not an automatic process.
Service Levels and Your Responsibilities

Change in Immigration Law
Please note that we shall not be held liable for advice if the law on immigration regarding your matter changes subsequently.
