Full list of new UK visa fees to be implemented in October

The United Kingdom government has announced an increment in immigration and nationality fees which will be paid for vital services effective October 4, 2023.

According to the UK government, the new charges will see the cost for visit visas for less than six months increase from £15 to £115 while the fee for applying for a student visa from outside the UK will rise by £127 to £490.

It explained that the increase equals the amount charged for in-country applications while a bill has already been tabled before the UK’s Parliament on September 15, 2023, awaiting approval.

“In July, the government announced a 15% increase in the cost of most work and visit visas, and an increase of at least 20% in the cost of priority visas, study visas, and certificates of sponsorship,” the UK government said on its official website; gov.uk.

“Income from fees charged plays a vital role in the Home Office’s ability to run a sustainable immigration and nationality system,” it added.
