It has been reported in Expat Forum that the consultation will take on board views from the home office, customers and stakeholders who have an interest in how fees are set, looking into areas such as whether the fee structure needs to be simplified, fee levels, legislations, border forces, refunds and administration fees. The process is set to end on 3rd December, and Immigration Minister Mark Harper claims that the adjustments will support the country’s visa system and contribute to making sure an excellent service is still offered to all. He also believes it is important to strike the right balance between “the economic interests of the UK and the need to maintain a sound immigration system.”

Best known for their full range of overseas moving services, Interdean is also dedicated to offering free visa assistance for those entering the UK. As such, the team were quick to delve further into the news. A representative from the firm speculates on the possible impact of these changes.

“It is important to consider the opinions of different groups of people for something as important as visa fees. Visa charges and processes are such a big part of life as an expat, but they also have wider implications, affecting issues such as security for those already living in the UK. We’re looking forward to reviewing the outcome of this consultation.”
