Petition Action

Reduce the Indefinite Leave to Remain fees

Petition Details

Introduce lower fees for dependents in ILR applications and/or introduce a family cap for families that apply (main applicant + direct dependents such as spouse or children). Indefinite leave to remain fees are quoted at almost 10x the home office cost to process them (£2389 vs £243 per applicant)!!

Additional Information

This is extremely profitable for the home office while families with dependents are especially prejudiced in such a situation?
This does not consider the other costs applicants incur such as English tests, life in the UK test, and third party legal or immigration service fees. A typical applicant will be currently budgeting around nearly £3000 (as example £15K total for a family of five following the legal settlement route? While paying income tax on their earnings to save this?)
