Developing a strategy on how you are going to achieve your UK immigration goals takes time and resources. Planning is one of the most important aspects of preparing a good immigration application. Immigration planning is preparing a sequence of action steps to achieve your specific immigration goal. If you do it effectively, you can reduce a lot of time and effort in achieving the goal. A good plan is like a map. When following a plan, you can always see how much you have progressed towards your projected goal and how far you are from your destination. Knowing what you have and what else you need is essential for achieving your goals. Poor planning is often worse than no planning at all.
