Spouse visa price hike

Recommended Posts

I've heard rumours the spouse visa is going up in cost to 6800 as of Jan 1st does anyone know if there is any truth in this?

And quick look at the past - application fees for 820/801:

2011: $2.960

2009: $2.525

2007: $2.060

2005: $1.935

2003: $1.795

and I like this one:

1994: $835

 

What's gonna be the fee in 2020 with the increasing budget deficit? ....

As you say, they don't have to. At least if you can find the money for the visa and minor things like medicals and PCCs, that's it - the sponsorship requirements are very easy to meet after that. The requirements for sponsoring a spouse to move to the UK are much more onerous e.g. the sponsoring partner must earn at least £18,600 or have over £62,500 in savings (or a combination of savings and income) and more is required if there are any dependents.

I figure they are trying to discourage people from applying onshore...e.g coming over on a tourist visa with the intention to apply for a partner visa onshore all along...

 

As Ozmaniac says, better than having the UK spouse visa requirements.
