With effect from April 2015 the annual change of Home office fees is expected

Basically, the fees will increase by an average 5 to 10 per cent.

However, some prices will change significantly, and not only upwards. For example, the charge for a Representative of an overseas business (in-country extension application) will decrease from £1,093 to £651.

Also, there is good news for applicants under Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) – The Home Office fee will decrease from £1,093 to £562. For applicants under this category applying from abroad, the fees will decrease not so significantly, but still considerably: from £874 to £562.  

The following application fees will increase significantly:

  • Tier 1 (Investor) from £1,093 to £1,500 (in-country applications) and from £874 to £1,500 (overseas);
  • ILR/ILE – from £1,093 to £1,500.

Also, from April 2015 a Super Premium Service will cost £7,000 instead of current £6,000.
