hi, congratulation, i'm self employed also, i'm Character animator, please can you tell me how much you pay for the consultant ? and if you don't mind can you please give me contact number of him, i need consultant as welllalastar said:Thank you. I actually had a consultant to help me with everything. I don't exactly remember all the requirements. All I remember is aside from the forms, personal docs like passports and birth certificates. I was also asked to prepare all documents to prove my eligibility so I just gather everything I have. I am not a freelance though, so I have all employment certificates plus my portfolio, so I am not sure with contracts in your case. For the money, I don't know how much is it already now but last time we paid around 2k dollars for application, 20k dollars for funds in the bank and a landing fee of around 1500 dollars.
