The Home Office have announced new fees

The Home Office have announced new fees that will be implemented in April of this year.

As is common practice the Home Office have raised their fees.

The increase is intended to reduce taxpayer contributions towards the border, immigration and citizenship system and ensure that by 2019–2020 the system is self-funded by those who use it.

The increases include:

  • 2% for visit, study and work visas;
  • fees for settlement, residence and nationality will increase by 25% in 2016–17;
  • targeted increases have been applied to premium services, such as the priority visa service.

 We will continue to keep you updated.
