The United Kingdom will increase its immigration health surcharge on Jan. 16, 2024, or 21 days after relevant legislation passes, whichever is later.
BAL Analysis: The 66% increase to the health surcharge is part of a broader strategy to increase fees, in part as a possible way to fund pay raises for certain public sector jobs. As of Oct. 4, work and visit visa fees increased by 15%; family, settlement and citizenship visas by 20%; and student visas by 35%. BAL will continue following the pending increases and will provide information as it becomes available.
