United Kingdom: Immigration Health Surcharge to double

Latest update on the Immigration Health Surcharge in the United Kingdom

The UK Government has announced plans to double the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) from £200 to £400. At present, the IHS applies to foreign nationals who are seeking to live in the UK for six months or more to work, study or join family. As a result, an individual expecting to stay in the UK for five years would pay an upfront fee of £2,000.

The current discounted rate for students and those on the Youth Mobility Scheme will also double from £150 to £300.

The changes are expected to take effect later this year.
