With lives at risk, jobs lost, and people under temporary confinement, marriage may be the last thing on many people’s minds. However for those here on a 6 month fiancé(e) visa who cannot marry due to closure of Registry Offices in Scotland (and likely in England and Wales too), this is an additional concern.

  The coronavirus pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we all live our lives. With borders closing and planes grounded, immigrants will face particular problems.

Presenting the Government’s 2020 budget to Parliament today, the newly-appointed Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced that the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) is to increase to £624 per year for adults, and £470 per year for children. Currently the rate is set at £400 for both adults and children. It would be wise for those seeking to apply for visas to do so prior to October 2020 where that is feasible.
