Understanding the Fee Structure for FLR (FP) Applications

When navigating the complexities of UK immigration law, it is important to have accurate, detailed information. If you are in the process of applying for Further Leave to Remain (FLR) on the basis of your family or private life (FP), one crucial aspect to consider is the cost involved. This blog post aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the FLR (FP) application fees.

The standard fee for an FLR (FP) application was £1,033. However, the cost can vary based on several factors and it’s important to note that these fees are subject to change.

In addition to the application fee, there is also the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS), which was set at £624 per year. This allows applicants to use the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). The total IHS cost will depend on the duration of the leave granted.

Here’s a breakdown of what you might expect to pay:

FLR (FP) Application Fee

As mentioned above, this was £1,033. This fee covers the processing of your application by the UK Home Office.

Immigration Health Surcharge

The total cost depends on how long you are granted leave to remain. For example, if you are granted 30 months (2.5 years) leave to remain, the total IHS would be £1,560 (£624 x 2.5 years). The government provides a calculator which can help with correctly working out the fee due.

Biometric Information Fee

As part of your application, you’ll need to provide your biometric information (fingerprints and a photo). This typically incurs a fee of £19.20.

Optional Premium Services

If you want to speed up the processing time of your application, you can opt for premium services. The cost varies depending on the level of service selected.

All of these costs should be factored in when planning your FLR (FP) application. It’s also worth noting that application fees are typically non-refundable, even if your application is unsuccessful.
