Home Office changes to immigration and nationality charges

The Home Office is increasing immigration and nationality fees, which come into effect on 6 April 2017.

Applications made in the UK

One of the steepest increases is in applications for indefinite leave to remain in the UK, which increases from £1,875 to £2,297. Other leave to remain applications increase from £811 to £993.

Applications for naturalisation have increased from £1,236 to £1,282, which includes the citizenship ceremony fee of £80.

Nationality registrations as British citizens increase from £1,121 to £1,163 for adults and from £936 to 973 for children.

Applications made outside the UK

Settlement applications have increased from £1,195 to £1,464. Settlement applications for dependant relatives has also increased from £2,676 to £3,250.

Applications for visit visas have some minor increases but which don’t make too much difference to the original fee.
