Increase in fees for additional services offered at UKVCAS visa application centres

When applying in the UK for a visa, Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), or British citizenship, supporting documents and biometrics (fingerprints and photographs) are submitted at an appointment at a UK Visa and Citizenship Application Services (UK VCAS) centre. UK VCAS centres are operated by a Sopra Steria, a company contracted by the Home Office.

Fees are charged for some additional services offered at UK VCAS centres and from January 2020 these fees increased without prior warning.

SIT has updated their guidance to reflect these increases.
