From Monday 22 November the UKBA will introduce new application fees for applications for entry clearance (0verseas) and further leave to remain (in country) for work, study or other purposes.
The Agency is charging fees by setting them above the cost of processing applications. The changes, which are subject to the affirmative parliamentary process, will begin from next week. On Friday 1 October 2010 fees which were set at or below the cost of processing were revised. I posted about the new purely capitalistic approach to the intake of foreigners at the time and the post can be viewed here.
The new fee information is available here.
