Our Team


Founder & Managing Director of UK Immigration Specialist, LLB., LLM.


Called to the Bar of England and Wales as a Barrister-at-law in 2011

Moving to a new country could be the most challenging event for one’s life. Leaving the homeland and embarking on new land, we need not only to adapt to a new environment but there may also be no one around to provide support and guidance.

Janine Miu, the founder of UK Immigration Specialist, graduated with a Master of Laws from the City University of London and a Bachelor of Laws from Lincoln University in the United Kingdom. She is the only professional consultant in Hong Kong who has the qualification as a Barrister-at-law in England and Wales.

“Since our establishment, we have always adhered to the concept of ‘Heart to Heart’ approach, ‘achieving your goals’, providing professional and integrity services to those who intend to relocate to the UK. We really want to help those in need.” Janine Miu said.

Having specialised in UK Immigration Law for over 10 years, Janine understands how courage it takes for immigration. She also understands how struggle people would be while seeking the right information.

Other than the business, Janine has always tried her best to provide accurate information to the public with her expertise and experience on the Facebook page, sometimes help clarify misunderstandings and rumours. Over the years, she has been featured in many media from Hong Kong and the world, including the BBC, Reuters, the Guardian, Bloomberg, Radio and Television Hong Kong, Commercial Radio, Apple Daily, Ming Pao, etc.

In addition, Janine has also published her own books. Her co-authors include “只想追趕生命裡一分一秒 移民英國解讀101”, “擁有同樣寄望 香港人移居英國的故事” and “離開以後 妳還好嗎”.

In the recent year, Janine has also expanded the company core business from UK Immigration to the EU Market, offering the Ireland IIP and Portugal Golden Visa programme services.
