New immigration fees proposed
Immigration minister Damian Green has issued a written ministerial statement proposing an increase in visa fees, and an increase in UK-based visa application fees.
The proposals will be laid in Parliament in 2 separate regulations and, subject to Parliamentary approval, the government hopes to bring the new fees into force from 6th April 2012.
Fees will increase by only 2% in the majority of cases, but there will be higher increases on certain routes.
A full table of the proposed fees is available in the ministerial statement, which can be downloaded here.
