What costs are involved in applying for a spouse visa?

If you are applying for a spouse/partner visa from outside of the UK, the current fees are £1,523. If you are applying from inside the UK, your online application will cost £1,033 for each person.

Where a spouse can’t afford to pay the application fee, you may be eligible for an exception and will need to complete an ‘online fee waiver request form’. You may be eligible if you can’t afford a place to live, have a place to live but can’t afford basic living requirements, or have a low income, where paying the fee will harm the welfare of a child.

The application will also attract the Immigration Health Surcharge.
