Re: ILR Fees 2017-2018

I think it will be £2250.00 this year, based on the calculation as 2016-17 1875 2017-18 1875*1.2=2250 2018-19 2250*1.2=2700 2019-20 2700*1.2=3240 The actual fees were £2297. You were almost spot-on!!! At least your calculations give us a rule-of-thumb to guess at the potential ILR fees in the comin...

Re: ILR Fees 2017-2018

I think the main mistake you are making is the assumption that the 'visa administration' should be self sustaining and this is all. That is the justification that the Home Office is using for the increasingly high fee, the objective being to make it self-sustaining and without relying on tax-payers...

Second arrival was 9th Jan 2013, and I extended my visa on 10th April for another 3 years. After than, I only left very briefly. So to co...

Can I stay overseas for another year after I get the Tier1 ?

I know it sounds ridiculous. I am having a very satisfying job in Sydney currently, the contract of which is finishing in May this year. It's very likely to get extended for another year. How long can I stay overseas after I got the visa? I am aiming for the settlement after 5 or 6 years. The regula...
