The Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) is a government body that regulates immigration advice. The OISC divides immigration advice and services into 3 levels, depending on the complexity of the work.
Citizens Advice Dudley and Wolverhampton can give level 1 immigration advice.
• We can give you advice on simple immigration queries – like working out if you are a British Citizen or checking if your immigration status lets you work;
• We can help you with completing straightforward applications such staying in the UK, varying the conditions of your leave or asking for an administrative review.
If your issue is more complex and you need level 2 or 3 advice, you will need to see an immigration specialist. The Refugee and Migrant Centre (RMC) provides free casework, advice and guidance on immigration issues for those living across the Black Country.
