The UK Border Agency has confirmed that the new fee increase for visa applications made from overseas, and immigration applications made in the UK, will take effect from tomorrow, Saturday 6 April 2013.

All visa and immigration applications submitted from 00:01 (UK time) on Saturday 6 April, must be accompanied by the correct new fee. Applications accompanied by the old fee will be rejested.

Applicants can use an old version of an application form for 21 days following the increase, but these should be accompanied by the new fee. New versions of application forms will be available on the UKBA website from 6 April.

Further information about the new immigration fees can be found on the UKBA website:

Following the Home Secretary’s announcement last month, the UK Border Agency was split into 2 separate units within the Home Office from 1 April 2013:

  1. Immigration and visa service and
  2. Immigration law enforcement division

Theresa May announced last week that the troubled UK Border Agency is to be abolished with its immigration work returning to the Home Office, telling MP’s “its performance was not good enough“.
