A number of changes to the UK visa fees will come into effect from 6 April 2018.
The key changes to the Home Office fees are outlined below:
- Increased UK visa fees on growth routes (work, study and visit) by 4%.
- Increased fees on most non-growth routes (nationality, settlement, family) and most associated premium services by 4%.
- The fee for the overseas optional ‘Priority Visa’ service for entry clearance will increase by 15%.
The government has not made any changes to fees under the sponsorship system. UK visa fees for entry clearance to enter the Channel Islands and Isle of Man will rise in line with fee changes seen in the rest of the UK.
