UK Increases Student and Visitor Visa Fees

UK has increased student and visitor visas to N476,667 (£490) and N111,878 (£127) respectively.

The increase would enable it to pay for “vital services and allow more funding to be prioritized for public sector pay rises”.

The fee for a visitor’s visa to the UK for less than six months will now cost £115 (about N111,878.28) as opposed to £15 (14,592.70) effective from October 4, 2023, translating to about a 667% increment.

The UK government made this known in a statement: ‘New visa fees set to come into effect next month,’ published on its website.

The UK also increased the fees for entry clearance and certain applications for leave to remain, including those related to work and study, for the majority of applicants.

The indefinite leave fee to enter was also increased and the indefinite leave fee still remained; as wellas the conventional travel documents and stateless person’s travel documents; health and care visa; fees concerning certificates of sponsorship and confirmation of acceptance for studies; the in and out of country fee for the super-priority service and the out of country fee for the priority service.
