What do we do?

We offer tailor made packages to suit your needs, whether you’re a large touring party travelling throughout the world or just a single applicant needing their passport renewed. No job is too big, too small or too complicated.

The services we offer cover visa processing for every possible destination worldwide. We can also assist with passports, 2nd passports, US petitions, and UK immigration. We can be as involved as you need us to be including one of our client liaison folk meeting you at the US embassy, and hand delivering your documents back to you once the process is complete.  

One of our specialisms is assisting applicants who have a history of misdemeanours, crimes and arrests as well as past immigration issues. Prior to the visa appointment we work closely with the applicant to put them in the best possible position of success.  

Although visas are our primary focus, we also have Andy as a TM for rent should you need one. Andy also has a wealth of production equipment for hire, plus rehearsal and studio space at our picturesque Suffolk HQ. 

I cannot thank you enough for continuing to be so quick to respond, accommodating, and knowledgable. I have been exclusively recommending your team to all of our managers so I hope we continue to do lots together in the future!

Who we are?

Born out of years of experience in the music industry first with seminal punk band The Mekons and subsequently as a tour manager, Andy realised that there was a gap in the market to help this niche group. He discovered many music industry peers struggled to navigate a straightforward path through the visa minefield.  

Although the music industry is still central to the company today, we have organically grown over the years and now we work with actors of both the stage and silver screen (big and small), models, sports stars, business executives, school children, conference attendees, sightseers and star crossed lovers!

Where do we go?

Although we’re based in the UK, we can assist with processing your visas worldwide, so if you need to get US visas whilst you’re in New Zealand, or Japan visas in the US we can help.

My work with Rebecca Stephens has been an excellent collaboration. Becca followed through on each and every detail in securing my work visa and calmed my nerves throughout the process. She is truly an employee to be recognized for her professionalism, knowledge of her field, and terrific follow through and, in addition, she possesses the kindest personality. Many thanks to you and your team for managing this stressful time for me and making the process a very positive experience.
