Yes. All visa applicants have to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge since April 2015, regardless of whether they work or not or have private medical insurance. It is immigration related, not work related.One question is that even if my wife works pays tax and NI we still have to pay IHS?
What date did she ENTER the UK as a PBS Dependent?
She will only qualify for ILR within 28 days before 31st May 2019.My wife first entered UK on a visa on 31st May 2014
You cannot pay the IHS at the premium centre. They do not process any payments at the centres anymore.vibhorjain84 wrote: ↑Thu Apr 12, 2018 1:28 pmHi Sonam/ESN,
My wife's extension application date is 27th April and in order to move forward I have just put in a dummy IHS reference number and taken a premier appointment where in I will be able to make the payment for IHS then and there.
I have done loads of research but could not find any guidance but everybody did mention that taking the premier appointment helped them pay only £600 rather paying the non-sensical amount of £1400 etc.
I have assummed that this is what they have done as well.
Which 'earlier posts'. Premium centres stopped processing any payment a couple of years ago already.
