The Ministry of Justice will be introducing appeal fee charges for some asylum and immigration appeals from 19 December 2011.
- People who want to appeal against a decision notice dated 19 December 2011 or later will need to pay a fee.
- The appeal fee will apply to most categories of visas and decisions.
- Any exemptions to the fees will be outlined by the Ministry of Justice.
- This will not affect any decision notices that are dated before 19 December.
Also, from 19 December people will need to lodge their appeals at the tribunal in the UK. Appeals will no longer be accepted at overseas visa application centres.
Full guidance about the changes will be published on the Ministry of Justice website from 19 December 2011.
