UK Visa Fees 2021 - Work & Business Immigration Routes

The UK offers a range of immigration routes for overseas nationals seeking to work or conduct business in the UK.  As part of any application for a UK work or business visa, applicants will need to pay a UK visa fee to the UK Home Office.  Each immigration route has its own UK visa application fee and these are regularly reviewed, with the latest update (at the date of this article) having been published on 26 January 2021.

Below we have set out the current visa application fees for the main UK work and business immigration routes in 2021.  Each entry includes a link to a page on our website where you can read about the requirements of the route and find out how our immigration barristers can assist your UK visa application.

To discuss your UK visa application with one of our immigration barristers, contact our UK immigration lawyers on 0203 617 9173 or complete our enquiry form below.
