Changes to immigration and nationality fees from 2 October 2017

Regulations were laid in Parliament on Thursday, 7 September 2017, which set out a change to the immigration and nationality fees.

This change will come into effect on Monday 2 October 2017.

Exchange Rate on Immigration Applications

Changes are being introduced on how the Home Office calculates exchange rates for overseas visa applications. The new policy, which will benefit customers, uses a new set of exchange rates where payments for UK Visa and Immigration Services are taken in cash or by a bank card in a currency other than Sterling.

The Home Office claims that the new  Exchange Rate Policy will provide a fairer and more transparent service to customers and will allow them to calculate in advance the cost of their visa application. The exchange rates will be reviewed on a fortnightly basis.

Full details of the Home Office Exchange Rate policy are available on the website.

There are no increases in immigration fees.
