@ saj19

That is my interpretation of it as well... That is really unfair!

Anyone has a different opinion/interpretation?

@ fomsand1

I thought it says £375 includes the booking fee of £100. Or am I reading it wrong?

Obviously the fees are quite high at the moment and increasing that make it worse, it's nothing wrong in expressing our views as we are the victim of it. UK government can treat it as business but the system is totally unfair without doubt.

Certainly not. The customer is never a king in a monopoly.

I posted details of the proposed fees on the forum last night and someone deleted it. Please see below details of everything I posted last night:

Hello all, just thought I would share this with you - subject to Parliamentary approval, with effect from 6 April 2013 (and 1 July 2013 for a select few) the following fees have been proposed: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... 9-new-fees. If approved, this will obviously put a strain on the purses of future applicants so please advise any potential applicants you know so they can start saving for any applications they may be making after this date.

Details of proposed fees in the written ministerial statement below:
http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/publicatio ... rging-wms/

Full timetable of proposed fees below:

The proposal reads "For applications made in person (e.g. at a public enquiry office) the total fee is the relevant standard fee plus £375 per person (this includes the £100 appointment fee, which may be retained should the applicant fail to attend their appointment without good reason)."

What I fail to understand is the fact that it costs them £403 to process the ILR applications for the main applicants but they want to charge us £1,051 (+£375 if in person).
HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT?!!!?!
Goodluck.

Disagree, the ukba is not a business it's a public body. It is not required to make profit. Furthermore, in a time of hardship fees should not be increased, they should be at the most frozen. The ukba already makes substantial revenue for the treasury. It is unacceptable to penalise people at a time of economic downturn when the individual has no option but to pay the fee. If they refuse the are deemed to be an overstayer and are committing an offence. This is just asking people to get further into debt.
