Home Office profits on visa applications soar

A recent study of Home Office visa fees by the Guardian has revealed that it is making up to 700% profit on some applications, citing the example of an application for Indefinite Leave to Remain which costs the Home Office £252 to process but for which the current application fee is £2,297.

To exacerbate the situation, it appears that there is a direct correlation between the level of fee and the probability of rejection with some of the most frequently refused applications attracting the highest fees. The unwillingness of the Home Office to exercise permissible discretion and it’s pre-occupation with interpreting relevant legislation as narrowly as possible often leaves applicants with little choice but to resubmit applications where they have been refused on minor technical points.

Our firm is dealing with an ever-increasing number of legal challenges to erroneous decisions made by the Home Office, both through formal appeals and Judicial Review, and will continue to provide robust challenges on behalf of our clients highlighting the incompetence of the Home Office to discharge it’s most basic function fairly and justly.
