The United Kingdom to make the Immigration Department self-funded increased the visa fees for visitors by two percent, student, Settlement and nationality visa application fees by 25 percent. The applicants have to bear increased fees from March 18.

The UK has planned to make the border, immigration and citizenship system self-funded by 2019-2020 by not relying on the taxpayers’ money. It is the attempt of the UK Government to make the immigration system more competitive, attractive and self-funded.

The increased fees might affect the Indians who have settled in the country. The applicants who arrive in the United Kingdom must apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK. The ILR fees are increased by 25 percent.

This move might impact Indians largely as they are the highest seekers of the skilled visas in the year 2015. Over 55,000 Indians entered UK through various skilled visas.

UK industry lacks professional talent and India fulfills their requirement by sending a large number of qualified professionals.
