Application fees

We're waiting for BritCits to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Home Office

As per earlier communications, I see that the visa application fees were as planned increased on 6 April 2015. The fee at £2,141 for "Settelement - other dependant relative" strikes me as particularly high.

Could you please provide the reasoning and information on what led to this increase, including statistics, copies of emails, letters, reviews, reports (i.e all communications) which justify this yet further increase by £159.

That is, what is the rationale and reason behind the fee for this category?

Yours faithfully,

BritCits

Dear Home Office

I am also looking for a breakdown of the components which have led the Home Office to set the fee as £2,141.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Home Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Home Office's handling of my FOI request 'Application fees'.

I don't believe the Home Office should be able to avoid disclosing how they arrived at the visa application charges. As a government department in a monopoly position there are clear arguments for greater transparency, but certainly it should not take over 24 hours of work to disclose how a particular fee was arrived at.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...

Yours faithfully

BritCits
