Updated Toolkit section on Entering the UK

Legal Updates

This week, the Immigration Health Surcharge increased from £400 to £624.

Applicants for entry clearance to the UK for more than six months, and people already in the UK applying for time-limited leave to remain, are required to pay the charge to cover NHS healthcare in the UK.

Read more about the surcharge – and who is exempt from paying – in the Entering the UK section of the Right to Remain Toolkit. We’ve updated the Toolkit to reflect these changes.

The section also looks at: general grounds of refusal of entry, an overview of the main types of visa for entry to the UK, and entering the UK and claiming asylum.


On reaching the UK, people face a hostile environment. Without help, many will be forcibly sent back to the wars, persecution and misery they have fled.
