UK Home Office publishes new immigration schedule of fees

WatchThis Video

On 07 March 2007, the United Kingdoms Home Office published an announcement with proposed new rates for various immigration and immigration-related services. Two different files were posted with slightly different information, although some of the information is duplicated.

PLEASE NOTE: These changes affect in-country fees. Separate changes have been posted for out-of-country applications and services.

In the announcement, the Home Office indicates that the new fee schedule is [based upon] "the findings of the consultation paper, 'A consultation on a New Charging Regime for Immigration & Nationality Fees', which ran from 30 October to 22 December last year. [The Government hereby sets out] the policy on a new charging regime for immigration and nationality fees and the new and proposed in-country fee levels."

While these fees are listed as "proposed," it appears at this time that they will become effective in identical or very nearly similar form as set out below from 01 April 2007. Both fee schedules provided are recreated here in HTML format:
