Home Office fees for visa applications go up every year, generally on 06 April, to coincide with the new tax year.  The fee increase is generally announced some three or four weeks in advance, but this year we have just two days notice of the increase.

In a statement today the Home Office have announced that from 06 April 2017 settlement visa application fees from overseas will go up by £269 (from £1195 to £1464) and applications for leave to remain in the UK will go up by £182, from £811 to £993.  Indefinite leave to remain will fo from £1,875 to £2,295.

All other fees have also increased, but the Immigration Health Surcharge remains unchanged,
