Immigration Health Surcharge

07 April 2015

Since 6 April 2015, most Tier 4 applicants who are applying for more than six months leave are subject to an additional charge as part of the application process, known as an 'immigration health surcharge' . 

Paying this charge as part of your application will mean that you are entitled to receive free health services from the National Health Services (NHS) while you are in the UK.

We have added information about this, including how to calculate the immigration health surcharge, to the following pages of our website:

If your visa application is rejected or refused the immigration health charge will be refunded.
