Reversing a door, making a chase for new light switch and making good afterwards

I'm looking at reversing the door to front room and moving light switch to other side of door frame.

The chase and flush mounted socket are being cut into wall that is decorated with lining paper that has been painted (2 coats of emulsion).

Is it possible to achieve a seamless finish when making good or would I need to repaper?

No need to re paper, just fill two coats of easy fill and sand to a smooth finish.

Hi ya
Depending on how its chased you should get away with filler and sanded might need a couple of coats of filler patients his the key
Hope this helps
