The date for the increase to the Immigration Health Surcharge has now been confirmed

Written by Recruitment Solvers on 19/01/2024

The Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) increase is set to take effect on 6th February 2024.

This adjustment translates to an increase from £624 to £1,035 per year for most applicants, while children, students and their dependents will see an increase from £470 to £776.

With the formal approval of this amendment by both Houses of Parliament, it’s essential to grasp how this may impact your plans, especially if you’re currently in the UK or planning a move in the near future.

The implications extend to various applications, both personal and those falling under the Skilled Worker route, with only limited exceptions for workers under Health and Care Visas.

What you need to do

Act promptly to beat the IHS price surge. We strongly advise submitting your applications no later than February 5th, 2024, to take advantage of the existing lower fees.
