New UKVI fees

On 7 March 2019, the Home Office has announced a number of changes to the immigration fees. Most of these changes will come into effect from 29 March 2019; with changes to the EU Settlement Scheme from 30 March 2019.

Increase fees for Priority Services:

The in-country Super Priority fee from £610 to £800;

The in-country Priority service from £477 to £500;

The out-of-country Priority Visa (General) service fee from £212 to £220.

Please note that the fees for entry clearance to enter the bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey, and the Isle of Man, as a visitor, and for the priority visa service, will rise in line with the same fees charged for applicants coming to the UK.

New fees for the “Innovator” and “Start-Up” routes will be at the same level as for the Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) category and Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) scheme.

Please note that there are no changes to fees under the sponsorship system.
