UK Visa Applications Fees Increased

12-02-2010 01:57 PM CET | Tourism, Cars, Traffic

Press release from: Capital Visas

/ PR Agency: Capital Visas

The fee hike was announced by the UK Border Agency in September as a response to “budgetary pressures” caused by the Government’s public spending cuts.
Some UK Visa’s prices have more than doubled while the prices of some UK visa categories will hike by as much as £150.

This latest round of hike in the fees for UK visa follows similar changes as on October 1, when there was an increase in the UK visa fees by as much as 30 per cent.

A UKBA statement read: “In line with broader announcements about reductions to public spending, the agency has considered how best to meet budgetary pressures, and the proposals for in-year fees increase will help to offset some of these pressures (alongside efficiency savings).”

Cuts to jobs and funding for the UK immigration industry prompted a strike by some UKBA employees in October.
