The government recently published its response to the consultation on proposals to reform the fees charged in the Immigration and Asylum Chamber of the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal.

The response, announced 15th September 2016, confirmed the government’s intention to increase the Tribunal fees for immigration and asylum cases which then came into force 10th October 2016.


The fees are now as follows:

Appeal type Old fee New fee
First-tier tribunal
   Application for a decision on the papers £80 £490
   Application for an oral hearing £140 £800
   Application to the FTT for permission to appeal to the UT Nil £455
Upper Tribunal*
   Application to the UT for permission to appeal to UT Nil £350
   Appeal hearing Nil £510


The new fees only apply to appeals against a decision that was taken on or after 10th October 2016. If the appeal is made against a decision received before this date, it will be at the old cost.
