The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has announced that, with effect from 00:01 (UK time) on Saturday 6 April 2013, there will be an increase in fees for visa applications. This increase will apply to visa applications made both in the UK and overseas.

The UKBA will not accept any visa application accompanied by the old fee.

The old versions of the UKBA’s visa application forms can be used for 21 days following the increase, but these should be accompanied by the new fee. The UKBA will soon publish new versions of the visas application forms.

The key changes for business visa applicants are shown below.
