From 1 September, the Home Office will require applicants to pay an additional fee of £52 per application to use some visa application centres, in addition to the application fee. The affected visa application centres are:
*Jinan will convert to a user pays centre on 1 October.
The fee is a slight reduction from what is currently charged (£59) at existing user pays centres in nearly 100 other locations and is to cover the cost of operating the local application centres.
The fee will apply to all applications submitted and paid for after midnight (UK time) on 1 September 2015. This should not affect how an applicant's online visa application is submitted as the fee shall be added to the visa application fee during the online payment process. For more information, please see the Home Office website.
