The Minister of State for Borders and Immigration, Phil Woolas, has laid regulations in Parliament for the fees for immigration and nationality services that are set at levels at or below the normal administrative costs of the service, the UK Border Agency (UKBA) announced this week.

The Minister said yesterday:

“The proposed fees are published today alongside these regulations. Our proposals for the fees that are set above cost were published on 20 January 2010, when we laid the affirmative regulations.

“The government reviews the fees on a regular basis and makes appropriate changes as necessary. We have continued with our strategic approach to charging, by setting certain fees above cost by balancing a number of complex factors (including the cost of processing applications, the importance of attracting certain groups of migrants to the UK and the value of a successful application to the migrant).”

Details of the proposed fees are set out in a written ministerial statement by Phil Woolas, which you can download from the UKBA website.
