HOME OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Charging for Immigration and Nationality Services 2010-11

The Minister of State for Borders and Immigration and Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Mr. Phil Woolas): 

“I am today laying regulations for the fees for immigration and nationality services that are set at levels above the normal administrative costs of the service. The Government reviews the fees on a regular basis and makes appropriate changes as necessary. We have continued with our strategic approach to charging; setting certain fees above cost on the basis of the value of the service.

“These fees must be set out in regulations before both Houses of Parliament and are subject to the affirmative procedure. The fees for these applications allow us to generate revenue which is used to fund the UK immigration system and to set certain fees below cost recovery to support wider government objectives. The revenue generated will contribute towards the development and delivery of the new Points Based System, the rollout of ID cards for foreign nationals and investment in IT capability both overseas and in the UK. This coming year we will continue to strengthen that capability in underpinning technology and process improvement. For transparency, I have included the estimated unit cost for each route, so that it is clear the degree to which certain routes are set above cost.

“We have succeeded in limiting the extent of our general increases, by taking a more targeted approach to fees adjustment which is consistent with both the UK Border Agency’s strategic charging principles, and also with broader government objectives. We have made several amendments to the UK settlement fees and we have proposed a nominal 10% fee for all applications for UK-based dependants to reflect the fact that each individual brings a processing cost to us. Full details of all fees changes are outlined in the Explanatory Memorandum accompanying these Regulations.

“Finally we will continue to generate revenue to fund the transitional impacts of migration. The Migration Impacts Fund has played a vital role in helping ease the pressures on certain communities.

“I am publishing today the fees for immigration and nationality services that are set at levels above the normal administrative costs of the service alongside these regulations. I will announce our proposals for the fees for immigration and nationality fees that are set below the administrative costs of the service when we lay negative regulations in February 2010.”

Full details on how to apply for all of these services will be provided on the UK Border Agency website, www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk

A table of fees for 2010-11 for immigration and nationality services that are set at levels above the normal administrative costs of the service is set out below.
