Proposed Visa Fees 2010 / 2011 Fees Set Below the Cost of Delivery

In the Proposal Document Mr Woolas said “The fees are set at or below the administrative cost of an application or process in line with the Government’s charging model. By charging below the administrative cost of delivery on the application types referred to in this instrument (detailed in part below), the UK Border Agency is able to support wider Government objectives, particularly where it is believed that a cost recovery fee would be so high as to damage international competitiveness in this area (e.g. for short term visit visa applications, Tier 5 Temporary Work applications).”
