UK's new visa application fees to go into effect on 4 October 2023

On 15 September 2023, the UK government confirmed that subject to parliament approval, the immigration and nationality application fee increases announced in July 2023 will come into effect on 4 October 2023. The planned increase in the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) will not come into effect until later in the autumn. The application fees for visit visas valid for less than six months will rise to GBP 115 (up from GBP 100), while the fees for Skilled Worker Visas valid for up to three years will increase to GBP 719 for applications filed overseas (up from GBP 625) and to GBP 827 for applications filed in the UK (up from GBP 719).

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
