Immigration Health Surcharge costs to double

February 6, 2018 | Immigration, Latest Thinking, News

The government has announced that the Immigration Health Surcharge is to be doubled.

Presently migrants from outside the EU who are seeking to live in the UK for six months or more are required to pay a surcharge of £200 to use NHS services. The surcharge will rise to £400 per year.

UK Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said;

“It is only right that people who come to the UK should contribute to the running of the NHS. The surcharge offers access to healthcare services that are far more comprehensive and at a much lower cost than many other countries,”
