Who We Are

Company Profile

Visa Inn Ltd is a UK Specialist immigration law firm registered at the highest level by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner, under the joint Directorship of Allan Van As, Violet Van As and their daughter – Crystal Van As.

Allan and Violet immigrated to the UK from South Africa some 36 years ago, which he recalls as being highly stressful, and the experience inspired Allan to study Law in the UK, and specialise in Immigration law, to help others alleviate the stress.

Completing his LLB. Hons degree at the University of Hertfordshire, and a further year of Post Graduate studies in UK Immigration law, Allan, together with his wife Violet Van As have spent the past 25 years successfully representing 100’s of clients from around the world, in gaining visas to enter or remain.

Their daughter – Crystal Van As – joined the firm seven years ago, and together as a family firm offering clients the peace of mind of personal and professional service, with results that are born out by the array of thank you cards and 5* Google reviews.

We have adapted during COVID, and offer all clients ZOOM access for holding ‘face to face’ meetings, to ensure that our clients remain safe during this pandemic.

Looking at Immigration law 25 years ago, the law is unrecognizable today as to what it was when Allan and Violet started their journey, but it is the journey itself, being part of the evolution of law, that has led to the deep insightful knowledge and experience, that they bring to each case.

If you are looking for an Immigration firm that cares, for a firm that you KNOW who will answer the call, for a firm that is truly a ‘family’ firm, and a firm that has the foundation of 25 years helping others – then we look forward to hearing from you.
