Immigration Fees

Work visa and visit visa by 15%                  

study visas, certificates of sponsorship, settlement, citizenship, wider entry clearance, leave to remain and priority visas by at least 20%

Likely impact on 5-year route

In the image here below we have tried to outline the impact of this exorbitant tax on love on someone on a 5 year route. (all figures TBC whilst we wait for the Home Office’s official document on the increases).

This will sadly affect many in our community so do reach out to us if we can help in any way.
