Petition Action

Reduce UK citizenship fees to £372

Petition Details

We want the UK Government to reduce fees for applying for UK citizenship from more than £1000 to £372 (which is what it costs the Home Office to process the application).

Additional Information

The fees for UK citizenship applications are very high, more than £1000.

This is a huge financial burden for people who have been in the UK for years and contributing to our society.

It's also a huge amount of money compared to what other countries charge:
US - about US$725
Italy - about EUR 300

Therefore we ask the UK Government to reduce the fee to £372 (application processing cost).

If the Home Office refuses to do this then they should tell us why it costs so much.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
