UK immigration huge fee increase for dependants from April

UK immigration huge fee increase for dependants from April

The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has said that it intends to raise its fees for all applications from 6th April 2013.

Most fees will rise by 3% in line with inflation. The greatest increases will be for dependants of main applicants applying from within the UK.At present, dependants applying from within the UK pay only 50% of the fees paid by the main applicant. This will rise to 75% of the main applicant's fee from 6th April.This could mean hundreds of pounds in extra fees. For example, an application for indefinite leave to remain (ILR) currently costs £991 for a main applicant and £496 for a dependant. If the changes are introduced, then the cost for a main applicant will rise to £1021 – a rise of £30. But the fee for a dependant will rise to £766; a rise of £280.Apply
