Increased Immigration Health Surcharge to take effect from 27 October 2020
07 October 2020
Regulations authorising the increases to the surcharge were made on 6 October 2020. For many applicants, the new charge will be £624 per year per applicant instead of the current £400.
Applicants for the Health and Care visa under Tier 2 continue to be exempt from paying the charge, as are their dependants.
For further details on the increases for all other applicants, please see our earlier article here. The regulations are available to view in full here.
We would suggest that where possible, immigration applications are submitted before the increase takes effect. If you need assistance, please contact a member of the immigration team.
