Dear UK Border Agency,

Can you please confirm if you have a policy to waive the application fee and if so what is the criteria for applying such a policy. Under what circumstances would an application be accepted (other than SET M) where the applicant is unable to pay the required fee.

Yours faithfully,

Just Legal Group

Guys, Persistant chasing of the Home Office appears to have also yeilded:

Waiving the fee on human rights applications

As you stated, it is possible to be exempted from having to pay a fee for a human rights based application. This can be done using Appendix 1 to Form FLR(O), available here: http://www.ind.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecon...

I do hope this information is of use to somebody (and I truely hope JLG can help a lot of clients who cannot afford to pay for this fee with this information...
