Gina made sure everything was in order before putting in our application for the spousal visa. It came out successful even though my husband had been refused a few times. We would recommend Gina to anyone who is looking to do a spousal visa. In fact, we have, and she is now helping one of our friends. Gina is very professional at her job and was a pleasure to work with. We would give her 10/10 for what she’s done for us.

Mr and Mrs Inyene Udofia

Gina Savanhu was a beacon of hope for my wife and me when my immigration process became too difficult for us to handle. Not only did she meticulously help us through every step of the process, her professionalism, patience and follow ups offered emotional succor to both my wife and me, especially when we encountered problems caused by a mix up in the system that threatened the outcome of my application. We are eternally grateful for her service and are looking forward to hire her again for the subsequent stages of my settlement process. We recommend Gina Savanhu without reservation.

Manuel Escamilla

I am writing to thank you for your services as I found you excellent with my wife’s Further Leave to Remain, Indefinite Leave to Remain and British Citizenship, I found you easy to contact if I had any questions or worries and your rates were very reasonable. I will be very happy to recommend you to anyone who asks.

M Jenkins

Gina was a great help when it came to renewing my residency permit. A few weeks before I was meant to send everything over to the Home Office she made contact and requested all the documents I needed. She kept me up to date with everything that was going on and any correspondence with the Home Office. This was great as the Home Office took a bit of time to get back to us. The service I received from her was great and much appreciated and her constant communication with me made me feel at ease as I knew I had someone there helping me out. I will definitely be using Gina’s service again when I have to renew my visa.


The school were put in touch with Gina Savanhu, immigration lawyer at GDS Immigration Law Ltd to help with the process involved in granting a Tier 2 (General) sponsorship for a member of staff employed from Australia. I cannot recommend Gina more highly in her approach. She was extremely professional, calm and patient! She went out of her way to explain the process step by step and I would not hesitate to use her services again in the future should the need arise.

Sarah P, HR Manager

We were lucky to have met Gina at a previous business meeting. Gina was very helpful to our immigration process and her efforts and professionalism helped us achieve our most important goal, which was being together and building a future as a family. We were very impressed with Gina’s work ethic. We always felt she was at our side every step of the way as she was always accessible and responsive via email and phone. Even after successfully completing the migration, Gina remains a trusted advisor and support.

Rob and Quita B

Gina was referred to me by a friend and from the initial interview until my ILR application was approved she has been very professional and supportive. I would highly recommend Gina as she is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and diligent in her work.


I wish to convey my gratitude and appreciation to Gina Savanhu of GDS Immigration law for a job well done and a satisfactory outcome. I instructed her to apply for my mother's visa application to visit the United Kingdom on my behalf. From the first telephone conversation and throughout the whole process, Gina was very helpful and honest regarding the strength of the application and possible outcomes. But what really stood out for me during this whole process was her service delivery. Gina was very efficient and was immediately available to discuss any developments both by telephone calls and emails until to the successful and positive outcome which we received at last week. When the application was initially refused, I was very disappointed. Gina provided us with a detailed outline of the errors in the decision letter. She drafted a letter challenging the refusal, and the decision was overturned within 2 weeks. This means that my mother can spend the summer holidays with us. Thank you once again for your excellent, thorough and professional work.  I would recommend Gina Savanhu of  GDS Immigration Law to anyone seeking experts in immigration matters.
