UK Border Agency Application Fees – New Charges October 2010

 

Increase in Immigration & Nationality Fees

In their continuing effort to profit from immigration, the UK Border Agency has today announced an increase in almost all immigration and nationality application fees starting 1 October 2010. Fees in some categories are increasing significantly and so far little if any justificiation has been published for this further sudden increase. It may seem to some that we have entered a phase of regular increases in the fees and costs of these applications for no apparent reason at all
