xii. the fee for receiving, outside the United Kingdom, an application for a certificate of entitlement to the right of abode in the Crown Dependencies will increase from £220 to £245.

The amendments made under this Order have been made so as to be consistent in respect of the Crown Dependencies with the changes made to the fees for entry clearance to the United Kingdom under the Immigration and Nationality (Fees) (No.2) Regulations 2010 and the Immigration and Nationality (Cost Recovery Fees) (No.2) Regulations 2010.

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen. Nevertheless, the UK Border Agency impact assessment in respect of the fee changes contained in the Immigration and Nationality (Fees) (No.2) Regulations 2010 and the Immigration and Nationality (Cost Recovery Fees) (No.2) Regulations 2010 and which correspond to these amendments can be found at http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/documents/aboutus/fees-wms-ia/.
