    I suppose they call it 'inflation', should only be adjusted every five years!

    I agree...visa fees for settlement and naturalization seems to just go up and up every year.
    I guess its to compensate for the FREE one's coming from the EU now

    Yes I agree Han, We've just made an appointment for next month with the checking service, £120 at the moment and cheaper than Premium!

    After the 10 months wait I had with my FLR(M), Keith and I will opt for the PEO for my ILR. We know it's £400 extra but we'd rather have the result the same day. We don't want to wait another day for visa again!

    I guess a Spouse Visa comes under the Settlement category. Does not help when the UK Visa website only gives the price in US dollars

    So if I am doing the form online in England and paying the fee for my wife and she is intending to go to the appointment in Manila with the papers is this applying within the UK or outside the UK

    Outside ... because - even though you're completing the form and paying the visa fee on her behalf - it's your wife who's the applicant!

    So the 'settlement' visa is the one she needs I guess

    With all the different tiers and visa names, it does not seem clear to me but I don't see one that clearly states Spouse Visa and I would hate to apply for the wrong one and mess up the whole application

    Just an update:

    When you apply online the UKVI will give you the appropriate fee to pay.

    All you need to do is to apply for the right category as the visa fee is non refundable.

    The online form certainly hasn't been well designed.

    May I suggest to set up an application and just take a look at the options.
    There's no specific form (unlike paper forms) it all comes down to making selections from the drop-down menus. Each drop down menus changes with different options depending on the selection you make.

    Your wife needs to make the following selections at the start:-

    Reason for Visit:-
    Settlement

    Visa Type:-
    Settlement

    Visa Sub Type:-
    Wife

    Just for fun try making different selections and you'll find the following drop-down menus change the options available.

    Hope that helps

    isn't that a bit ridiculous ???
    why do I need to pay
    tax and national insurance
    every month for then ???



    I should be entitled to
    seek medical here in UK
    because I'm already a tax payer ...


    honestly I dont mind to pay
    £500 if Im not a tax payer but
    I get £200+ less money every month
    because of paying tax and ni already ...

    Everyone, brace yourself. On top of the visa fees is the lovely amount of Immigration Health Surcharges

    a whooping £600 on top of the settlement visa fees.

    In my opinion the fees are all right as long as it is charged to everyone whether they are coming to the UK as an EEA or not. But its totally unfair for working people of Britain to pay some sum to have their family to come and join them here in the UK.

    If 's electorate decide to remain part of the EU following a referendum ... then, British nationals should be entitled to exercise the same so~called "Treaty Rights" ... ... whatever those are - (I have never been entirely sure) as *continental Europeans OR *they ought to be charged at rates corresponding to those paid by British citizens. In MY opinion!
