Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Order 2011 — Fees for Immigration, Nationality and Consular Applications — 16 Feb 2011 at 24:20

Brooks Newmark MP, Braintree voted to extend the circumstances where fees can be charged in relation to immigration, nationality and consular applications, services and transactions.

The majority of MPs voted in favour of extending the circumstances where fees can be charged in relation to immigration, nationality and consular applications, services and transactions.

The majority of MPs voted to approve the draft Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Order 2011, which was laid before the House on 24 January

The explanatory note to the draft order[1] states:

  • This Order replaces the Immigration and Nationality (Fees) Order 2007, which currently sets out the applications, services and processes for which the Secretary of State may make regulations requiring fees to be paid. In addition the order will allow fees regulations to a) specify a number of new types of charge and b) deal with consular fees connected with immigration and nationality (consular fees are currently dealt with in separate legislation).

The order enables fees to be charged where previously there were no fees including for:

  • Members of the armed forces wishing to register their children as British citizens.
  • Certain students seeking to change their institution.
  • Applications for the status of British Protected Person.
  • Applications for Highly Trusted Sponsor status.
  • Preparing documents for other countries' immigration procedures.
  • Amendments to nationality certificates.
