Policy for the return of COA application fees

03 August 2009

On 9 April 2009 the UK Border Agency suspended the fee for applications to obtain a certificate of approval - a document that is required by many migrants who are subject to immigration control and who want to get married or register a civil partnership in the United Kingdom. If you applied for a certificate of approval between 1 February 2005 and 8 April 2009, you may now be eligible to have the fee returned to you if you can demonstrate that payment of the fee caused you real financial hardship. You can find out more about the eligibility criteria and how to request a return of your fee by downloading the request form and advice from the right side of this page.
