UK visa fee hike for visitors, students to be effective from Oct 4

  • The British Government has announced that the fees for UK Visit Visas and UK Student Visas will increase, affecting travelers from around the world, including Indians. The cost for a UK Visit Visa for under six months will rise to £11,835, while the fee for a UK Student Visa from outside the UK will rise to £50,428.
  • The fee increase is part of broader reforms affecting various visa categories, including work and study visas, and health and care visas. The changes aim to equalize the fees charged for in-country and out-of-country visa applications. The fee hike is expected to go into effect from October 4, pending parliamentary approval.
  • The increase in visa fees is intended to meet the rising public sector wage increase and address the financial demands on the UK's state-funded National Health Service (NHS). The British Prime Minister announced the fee changes to secure funding for the NHS and other public services.
