Immigration Health Surcharge set to increase

On 16 January 2024, the Immigration (Health Charge) (Amendment) Order 2024 was approved by Parliament. The Order is now set to come into effect on 6 February 2024 and will see significant rises to the Immigration Health Surcharge.

The new changes will see the fees increase from:

  • £470 to £776 per year for students, student dependants, Youth Mobility Scheme workers and children under 18 on the date of the application; and
  • £624 to £1,035 per year for all other relevant immigration categories.

Those who are looking to avoid these increases, should submit their UK immigration applications before 6 February 2024.
