The Ministry of Justice will be introducing appeal fee charges for some immigration and asylum appeals from 19 December 2011.
Individuals who intend to appeal against a decision notice dated 19 December 2011 or later will need to pay a fee. The appeal fee will apply to a majority of categories of visas and decisions. Every exemption to the fees will be defined by the Ministry of Justice. This will not have impact on any decision notices that are dated before the 19th of December 2011.
Furthermore, starting from 19 December people will need to lodge their appeals at the tribunal in the UK. Appeals at overseas visa application centres will no longer be possible.
The complete information about the modifications will be available on the website of the Ministry of Justice from the 19th December 2011.
