Slash Home Office settlement and naturalisation fees: stop making a huge profit
Home Office charges £2,389 for indefinite leave to remain (per person for the main applicant and every dependant) a rise of 25% on 2016-17. It costs £243 to process each application. The settlement visa for an adult dependent has risen from £585 in 2008-09 to £3,250 in 2017-18, an increase of 450%.
Fees for immigration and nationality applications have steadily risen since 2010 including in the latest round of changes in April.
Figures released to the BBC showed the Home Office made £800m in revenue from fees in six years.
The Home Office made profits of up to 800% on some immigration applications from families.
