About Free Movement

Free Movement offers updates, commentary and advice on immigration and asylum law. Our mission is to make good quality and clear information available to all affected by immigration control: migrants themselves, their families, their lawyers and their judges. Immigration law has become very complex in the UK and changes very rapidly; we try to make it simple, or at least understandable.

The website was founded by Colin Yeo in 2007 and Colin continues to edit the blog. The website receives over 300,000 page views a month and we have over 17,000 email subscribers.

Derek Edwards

I consulted Chris Desira of Seraphus Ltd via the free movement site twice and found the advice both helpful and reassuring. Chris had clearly put time and care into preparation for my sessions and addressed my concerns in a very competent and serious manner. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for advice on their situation, particularly with Brexit coming up.

Amanda Twohig

Hi Colin, big thank you for your tutorial on electronic form for permanent residence for EU citizens. I followed it, applied in January and got my card back a month later. Definitely fast track!
