For those of you who were literally 'on the fence' about settling in the UK or becoming a BC (British Citizen), put your flip-flops on and form an orderly queue please! The dilemma is over; Apply Now - The timing has never been better.
The Home Office has confirmed by publication on 23 March 2015 that their Indicative Charges for the various immigration applications for 2015-2016 will now come into effect from 6 April 2015 with the cost of ILR (Indefinite Leave to Remain, a.k.a. 'Settlement Visa') rising from £1,093 to £1,500 per person (*e.g. for Long Residence). See the full UKVI'S 'Tariff' here. There are increases in other types of applications, too, e.g. British Citizenship for adults (naturalisation) will increase form £906 to £1,005.
So - at the risk of sounding like an advert - Get clicking on that mouse if you want to save yourself a few hundred pounds!
