ok, here is the deal....i am leaving my nothing special job to travel in w. europe and the usa during the summer. i am looking for my next work endeavor, and i figure "hey, i can look all over." well, the problem is all overis a pretty big area to cover. i have contacted a london based company through a website obtained by you guys here(you rock by the way)and received this reply about visas:

Thanks for your enquiry via our online assessment.

We may be able to make an application for you for the Highly Skilled Migrant
visa. This is a points based system, for which I need to know your gross
income for the last 12 months to the current date in order to assess your
case. Please advise.

Also, please could you attach your CV - it has not come through clearly on
our online form.

Our fee for arranging the visa is GBP595, ex govt fee of GBP150.

I look forward to hearing from you.

SOOOOO...

my questions are...

does this seem a little pricy?

does any1 have experience with this? (i think a couple of you are working in london as i type this)

does any1 know where i can look international visa info up?

any help would rock!!!!
