UK Visa Fees

Visa fees

All the fees below are mentioned in pounds sterling, but are usually payable in local currency. Dependants are charged the same fee as the main applicant. All dependants who are traveling must pay the fee whether or not they are included in the main applicant’s passport.

Visa fees are non-refundable but if a payment has been made and the application is not submitted or if the applicant refuses to provide biometrics details with their application, then we will refund the fee.

These fees are effective for all visa applications made from 6 April 2009 According to the Home Office..
