The UK Border Agency has published its formal response to its 2009 public consultation on the fees it charges for immigration and visa applications.

The agency received just 98 replies to the three month consultation, which ran from 9 September to 1 December 2009.

The UK Border Agency (UKBA) said:

“We would like to thank all who took the time to contribute to this important debate and give us their views on our proposals.

“We have listened to the respondents’ views, which showed broad support for the headline measures but concerns about some of the supporting proposals. These comments are reflected in our response, which you can download from the Consultations section of the UK Border Agency website.”

The UKBA fees proposals are currently being developed and are due to be laid before Parliament during the first quarter of 2010.

The consultation will inevitably lead to new and higher fees.

In July 2011 the government will be introducing earned citizenship.
