Feedback and complaints
You can make a complaint if you’re not happy:
- with the advice you’ve been given
- about how you’ve been treated
- because you’ve had difficulty getting in contact
Please say if you need any extra support when we contact you, for example larger font size.
How to complain
You can complain in different ways - depending on what it’s about.
If you’re complaining about immigration advice
You can complain to us or to the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC).
You should complain to the OISC within 12 months of getting the advice if you can.

If you think our advice made you lose money
- complain to us
- ask a solicitor or an independent legal adviser to check if you have a legal claim against us
If you make a legal claim, we can’t deal with a complaint about the same issue until the claim is finished.
