UK hikes student visa fees, introduces new visa
|1st April: Britain today announced a steep hike of 54 pounds in the student visa fee and introduced a new category of 'dependent relative' visa as a part of its effort to attract those migrants and visitors who can "make a valued contribution".|
The fees for the students' visa was raised from 145 pounds to 199 pounds while the dependent relative visa would be charged 1680 pounds. The increased fees will come into from April 6.
"The new visa category of 'dependent relative' will allow the grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles and siblings over the age of 18 to join family members settled in the UK or being admitted for the purpose of settlement," an official announcement said. The hike also takes into account the cost of processing visa applications.
