According to the UK government, the NHS’s annual state subsidy will rise from £624 to £1,035 per year.

According to the government, the cost of work visas will increase by 20% (from £1,235 to £1,482 for a duration of more than three years) and the cost of study visas would increase by 15% (from £363 to £417).

The cost of visit, work, and post-study work (PSW) visas will increase, according to John Glen, chief secretary to the UK Treasury, in a video that was released on Friday.

Similarly, he said the cost of study visas, certificate of sponsorship (COS), indefinite leave to remain (ILR), settlement status, and others will be more expensive.

Glen added that priority visa applications will also increase significantly.

“We plan to increase the rates of the immigration health surcharge, which have been frozen for the last three years,” he said.

“Despite high inflation and wider pressures facing the economy and the system, in general, to ensure that it covers the full healthcare costs of those who actually pay.

“Under our plans, the main rate will increase to £1,035, and the discounted rate for students and underage teens will increase to £776.

“This increase in the surcharge will help fund the pay rise for doctors. At the same time, we will increase fees across a range of immigration and nationality routes, including for people coming here to live, work and study at a time of record high immigration numbers.

“Specifically, this means increasing the cost of work visas and visit visas by 15 percent and increasing the cost of study visas, COS, settlement, citizenship, wider entry clearance and ILR visas and priority visas by at least 20 percent.

“We’re also equalising cost for students and for those using a priority service so people pay the same whether they apply from within the UK or from outside the UK.

“This will help cover more of the costs of migration and border system allowing the home secretary to divert more funding to police forces to help fund the pay rise for the police.

“We will cut back on civil service recruitment in the ministry of defence until March 2025 to help fund the pay rise for all forces.”

The development is coming a day after Rishi Sunak, the UK prime minister, announced plans to significantly increase visa application fees.

The prime minister had said the government intended to raise over £1 billion to pay teachers, police, junior doctors and other public sector workers.
