Fee Waivers

The complexities and expenses involved in acquiring permission to enter or remain in the United Kingdom can pose significant challenges for individuals and families. The recent increases in the Home Office prescribed fees and the Immigration Health Surcharge have further added to the financial pressure on migrants.

The possibility of obtaining a fee waiver is available for certain visa types, particularly those falling under the family and private life route or human rights applications, where a minimum earnings threshold isn’t required. Additionally, fee waivers are accessible for children applying for Registration as British Citizens.

To qualify for a fee waiver, applicants must demonstrate their inability to afford the associated fees due to financial hardship or destitution. The Home Office will examine the financial position of the applicant and every member of their household to determine whether the applicant can realistically be expected to pay the fees.

It’s important to recognise that fee waivers are intricate and a failure to present the case effectively can result in significant costs in terms of Home Office and Immigration Health Surcharge fees.
