EU national PR fees

Post by rerdos » Fri Sep 29, 2017 3:16 pm

Hi guys,

I just had a look at the joint technical note on the comparison of EU-UK positions on citizens' rights:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... ens-rights

And I started to wonder at this:
Fees for documentation: Free of charge or for a charge not exceeding that imposed on nationals for issuing of similar documents.

Do you think there is a possibility that all the EU nationals in the UK have to pay £2297 just to be able to stay in the UK? As the current price of ILR is £2297 and it will possibly increase by 20-25% every year.

DON'T PANIC!

The phrase used is the same phrase as is used for the charge for residence cards in 2004/38/EC. I think 'nationals' is to be interpreted as 'citizens', not as mere nationals. The UK interprets the upper bound as the charge for a passport - and I've seen no hint that they're planning to add the cost of a nationality status letter to the fee.

Also I believe there would be an outrage if all the 3 million EU citizens would need to pay £2297 each.

I really hope they will stick to their current £65 DCPR fees.
