I am really confused on whether I should continue or not my application with a consultancy services. My best friend told me that I can do it on my own since I know how to make use of the internet and I'm not really that busy. What do you think my friends? Do you think that I still need to go through an agency or consultancy services? Please help me decide.

I think you friend is right. I did not use any agency and I did all the necessary documents I needed for the Visa to the UK. From my experience I don’t think it will take so much time to do it. A couple of years ago I really talked an agency about the visa applications. The process was so complicated and the cost was so high. From what they told me I felt they can not help me, in opposite they made my work harder and I had to pay high cost for the extra money that should not exit if I do it myself. I think preparation of the documents is a good practice for you to have idea about the UK business style. It’s a good chance for you to learn resolving problem by yourself. Not to mention you will save a big money.

Thanks for boosting up my spirit! Oh well, where have you been before you arrived there in UK? It's really costly for me to get a consultancy services but I just wanna get an assurance that all of my documents are pretty good and complete.
