New Home Office fees
As happens this time every year, the Home Office has announced new visa/nationality fees, to be effective from 6 April 2018. This is one aspect in which the Home Office is very efficient in its work.
There are a few exceptions, but the majority of fees will increase, by about 3 or 4%. A six-month visitor visa application, for example, is increasing from £89 to £93 and a Spouse visa application, for example, is increasing from £1,464 to £1,523. And British naturalisation fees are increasing by £48 to £1,330.
So an application submitted to the Home Office or British Embassy on or after 6 April 2018 must be accompanied by the new fee or it will be rejected. If you are on the point of submitting an application you could therefore save yourself a few pounds if you act quickly.
