Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally made). This item of legislation is currently only available in its original format.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations revoke and replace the Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Regulations 2016 (S.I. 2016/226). They also revoke the Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Regulations 2015 (S.I. 2015/768) for all remaining purposes.

These Regulations specify fees relating to immigration, nationality and associated functions. They are made further to the Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Order 2016 (S.I. 2016/177), as amended by the Immigration and Nationality (Fees) (Amendment) Order 2017 (S.I. 2017/440), which sets out the functions in connection with immigration and nationality for which the Secretary of State may charge a fee, and the maximum amount that may be charged for each of these functions. The Regulations also make provision which is incidental to the specification of those fees.

Schedules 1 and 2 specify fees for applications for entry clearance to enter, leave to enter and leave to remain in the UK and approval letters connected with entry clearance and leave to remain.

Schedule 3 specifies fees payable when requesting certain documents relating to immigration and nationality, whilst Schedule 4 specifies certain fees payable by sponsors when requesting particular products or services.

Schedule 5 specifies fees relating to the provision of consular services, Schedule 6 provides for fees payable in relation to premium services provided in the United Kingdom, whilst Schedule 7 makes provision for fees payable in respect of such services provided outside the United Kingdom. Schedule 8 specifies fees payable in connection with nationality.

Schedule 9 provides for fees relating to applications for entry clearance to the Isle of Man, whilst Schedule 10 makes similar provision in respect of the Bailiwick of Guernsey and the Bailiwick of Jersey.

Schedule 11 makes provision for fees payable in respect of miscellaneous matters including the administration of the life in the UK test. Schedule 12 makes amendments to the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) Fees Order 2011 (S.I. 2011/2841) in consequence of the making of these Regulations.

Provision is also made in the Schedules to these Regulations for exceptions to certain of the fees specified, and the circumstances in which certain of them may be waived or reduced.

A note outlining the likely impact of these Regulations has been laid before Parliament together with these Regulations.
