Fees on Partner applications, including spouses, civil partners, unmarried partners, fiancées, prospective civil partners and various applications under human rights and outside of immigration rules

Typically, these applications take about 5 – 16 hours and thus we estimate a fixed fee cost is likely to range between £800 to £4,000 plus VAT (20%) depending on the seniority of your adviser, number of applicants, complexity and difficulty of the questions involved and the circumstances in which the work is carried out. We may be able to offer a fixed fee for these applications, depending on your circumstances.

Our fees do not include disbursements. The likely disbursements include Home Office visa application fees, Immigration Health Surcharge and UKVCS fee.

The visa application fee is £1,048 if your application is made inside the UK and £1,846 if your application is made outside the UK. The entry clearance application, initial application as a partner, and subsequent extension applications require the Immigration Health Surcharge, which is £1,035 per year. There is no VAT payable for the Home Office fees and Immigration Health Surcharge.

UKVCAS Fee:

At all UKVCAS Service Points (except the Premium Lounge), a variety of free and chargeable appointments are available. The fee for chargeable appointments includes VAT (20%) and varies between £85 and £285.

Basis of Fixed Fee

  • The fixed fee range depends on the financial requirements and the complexity of the matter. For instance, if someone is relying on a regular salary, we need to thoroughly check specific evidence like payslips and bank statements to make sure they meet the Home Office standards. In cases where income varies, such as from commissions or overtime, we must ensure they still meet the financial requirement set by the Home Office.

The fixed fee for our services is also determined by factors such as the volume of supporting evidence, the specific financial requirement category the applicant is targeting, the nature of their relationship with the settled individual in the UK, the presence of dependants, instances where the applicant falls short of the income threshold, and any unusual accounting periods. Our transparent approach ensures that the fee accurately reflects the unique aspects of each individual case.
