Call for evidence: Home Office approach to charging for services - Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration
The Independent Chief Inspector has called for evidence on the Home Office's approach to charging for its services.
Given the relatively high level of fees and charges and the relatively relaxed timeframes for services provided by the Home Office & UKVI, I would imagine that quite a few users frequenting these forums would like to provide evidence and feedback. The evidence must be submitted by 16th July 2018.The inspection will look at the rationale and authority for particular charges, including the amounts charged.
It will also look at whether the Home Office is providing the services in question efficiently and effectively, including meeting agreed service levels where these exist, and at the means of redress where individuals are dissatisfied with the service they have received.
The Independent Chief Inspector will be seeking inputs from the ICIBI’s regular stakeholders, but would also like to encourage contributions from anyone with first-hand knowledge or experience of Home Office charging for services.
The Guardian has looked at the matter in an article.
