UKBA to introduce changes to fees for UK visas and sponsor licences

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has released its revised fees for UK visas and sponsor licences.

Since February last year, the UKBA has been rolling out a new, tighter system for UK immigration.  Because of the major changes involved, including massive upgrades to security systems at border controls and the development of biometric technologies, the Government is looking to increase its revenue from the UK visa application system to cover its costs, so that the taxpayer does not bear the burden of the immigration upgrade.

The Government has released the 2009-10 fee levels for all visa, immigration and nationality applications and services, which can be found on their Home Office website. 

The Government will invest over £2.2 billion during the next two years to the UK immigration system, and around one third of this funding will be borne by foreign nationals. 


The UK Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in UK visa and immigration services.
