Changes In The UK Work Visa Application Fees In 2022

To apply for a visa to work in the UK, applicants need to pay the applicable visa application fees to the Home Office as per government directives. How much you need to pay depends on the type of visa you’re applying for, how long you’re intending to stay, and where you are applying from.

Visa application fee

The Visa application fee is the fee you need to pay to the Home Office when you submit your visa application. This fee is charged by the Home Office to process your application. The Visa application fee is not refundable if your visa is refused. Therefore, you need to make sure to submit the right documents and fill in the information correctly. If you need help checking documents for your visa application, please contact us at sales@workpermitcloud.co.uk.

Due to the rising cost of living in the UK, which is caused by the rising energy and food prices. The Home Office also increased the visa application fees.

From the 6th of April 2022, visa applicants will need to pay the new visa application fees that are announced by the Home Office.
