    This is what we paid for everything to give you an idea - I am guessing their price includes skills etc -

     

    Go Matilda £1495

    TRA £120 ($300)

    Certified Copies £100 (which your agent can now do for you)

    Visa £830 ($1985)

     

    Our total (excluding medicals which were £475) was £2545

     

    Have your agents told you what exactly is included in the price as this does seem high :roll:

    Hi thanks for replying the price only includes their fee all the other things you mention we will have to pay as well, on top of the £3900+vat. :oops:

     

    Have queried the first bill which we just received and they took off 4 units of time (6 minute intervals) as a gesture of "good will" .Haven't paid it yet.....does anybody know how to get out of the contract we've already paid a deposit of £950

    Visa £830.00 (depends on exchange rate)

    TRA $500 (Dollars)

    Meds £700.00

    Cert Copies £1 each (solicitor feels sorry 4 us as so many to do)

     

    Regards Jane

    Sorry to hear you have problems with your agency :(

     

    Its can be quite expensive, we had 3 quotes & opted to go with Overseas Emigration, based in Edinburgh. We are in the final stages of the process, awaiting the visa. I would definitely recommend them.

     

    Their fee was £1700 + VAT, so more than Jane & Lisa paid. I think sometimes you just have to shop around

     

    Good luck :)
