Now UK Immigration Appeals Require Fees to be Paid by Applicants/Candidates

All the applications for leave to remain, leave to enter or for transforming a UK visa will now incur a fee between £60 and £250.

Online PR News – 30-October-2010 – – It was revealed yesterday that applying for a rejected UK visa application will now incur a fee.

All the applications for leave to remain, leave to enter or for transforming a UK visa will now incur a fee between £60 and £250.

The fee is excluded for people who qualify for legal aid, people receiving asylum support in the country and applicants/candidates who are in the asylum “detained fast track” process.

Moreover, for deportation, revocation of leave and deprivation of citizenship or right of abode appeals, no fees will be charged.

Other special cases may also be eligible for the exemption of fee.

Irrespective of the result of the UK immigration appeal, the fee charges would be payable.

The aim of this measure is to substantially minimize the running costs of UK immigration appeals system by 25 per cent. Last year the system cost £115 million to taxpayers.

Jonathan Djanogly, the under secretary of state at the Ministry of Justice, states: “I believe that it is reasonable to ask non-UK citizens appealing against some categories of immigration and asylum decisions to contribute to the costs of the administration of that appeal, where they are able to,”

In opposition to the move the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants states: “The cost of the immigration appeals system is in no small part a product of the poor quality of decision making by the UK Border Agency… applicants should not be penalised for this particularly given that their appeals will often concern matters of life and death and other fundamental rights.”

For lodging a UK immigration appeal, currently no fee is charged.
