Abolish Visa Fee for Non- EU NHS Workers and their Families

Petition Details

NHS workers are front line in the fight with Covid-19 and risking their lives to treat patients and save lives. In this struggle many NHS workers have already lost their lives.
I request the Government to review and make visas free for non-EU NHS workers and their families.

Additional Information

Any Non-EU NHS worker will pay following Visa + NHS surcharge
The current visa fees are as follows:
1) NHS worker (Tier 2) Visa Fee £1220.
2) Settlement Visa fee £2389.
3) Naturalisation as British Citizen fee £1330.
4) NHS Surcharge £400 per year per person. For 5 yrs = £2000 PP, which is increasing to £650 next year.
Each NHS worker and Family member will pay over £5139 Visa Fee each. For family of 4 visa fee = £20556.
Please review and make visas free for NHS workers and their Families.
