The UK's Immigration Minister, Damian Green, has recently issued a written Ministerial Statement proposing to increase immigration and nationality fees for all those applying to study, work, visit or stay in the UK.

Normally such fee increases our implemented when proposed, but that's not to say it shouldn't be challenged.

Most categories (including Entry Clearance and in-country extensions) will see significant increases with Tier 4 Students (15.9% proposed increase) and their dependents (134.00% proposed increase) set to be the hardest hit.

What we are seeing here is migrants picking up the bill for the UKBA's public spending cuts.

    I think UK government is the first loser of this action. Increasing the fees will most probably decrease number of students in the UK and As Results, will effect economy badly. I do know why government see International students as negative thing? The government should know that there are many other competing countries like Australia, New Zealand and USA whom can provide Excellent education with half money!!

    It is becoming really outrageous, the government should find other means of raising revenue for the UK. I see this becoming more rampant(if it is not at the moment), foreigners paying and marrying local indigenes just to become citizens, because if the cost of getting a visa is the same as paying a local indigene then people will rather go the way that guarantees them citizenship.

    International student fees and living expenditure rises every year. Further increase would affect the government attracting more bright students to study in the UK Universities
