Immigration fees

Those applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain have found they must pay twice as much to apply, following changes in April this year.

The cost of making an application before April was £335; however it has now more than doubled to £750. There is also a fee of £34 for taking the Life in the UK test and a handbook costing £9.99 which is required to enable applicants to pass.

Pitsmoor CAB has seen a number of clients who haven’t been aware of the changes and increased fees, and have not started to prepare for the tests. If someone’s existing leave expires before they have completed the new requirements, it is possible to apply for Further Leave to Remain. However, the bad news is that the application fee has increased from £335 to £395, after which applicants have to pay the £750 ILR fee.

Pitsmoor CAB can assist people if they have queries regarding immigration.
