MLC freezes its fees whilst Government immigration charges double

The Home Office’s Immigration Health Surcharge, which applies to temporary migrants (students, Tier 2 workers), is doubling from January 2019.

For students, the fee is expected to increase from £150 to £300 and for workers and visitors, £200 to £400. This means that, as an example, a five-year Tier 2 Visa entails that the surcharge increases from £1,000 to £2,000. According to the government, the scheme has brought in over £660m to the NHS since its launch in 2015. By increasing it, the Home Office expects to bring in a further £220m to be pumped into the NHS. This is certainly good for the NHS but it does increase the burden on those making applications to the Home Office.

Here at MLC Immigration Lawyers, we are fully committed to supporting our clients whichever way we can. So, the great news is that we have taken the easy decision to freeze our fees in the hope that this will provide a little financial assistance to clients. 

We know that the vast majority of our clients are hard working people who don’t necessarily have the funds to pay for these increases. It’s really going to make things difficult so we’re doing what we can by keeping our prices the same as 2018.

Absolutely amazing service. Very professional and friendly team.

I personally would rate 10 stars for my lawyer Annik, he is honest, efficient and straight to the point. His knowledge is expert and no flaw could be picked. I (and my eldest daughter) have been granted indefinite leave to remain this summer (2018), and my case isn’t straight forward like black and white, this shows how outstanding he (and the team) is. I will be visiting him again soon to help me with the application for continue my journey to became a British citizen, and my family as well.
