Currency rate of exchange on immigration applications

New changes are being introduced on how the Home Office calculates exchange rates for overseas visa applications. The new policy, which will benefit customers, will use a new set of exchange rates where payments for UK Visa and Immigration Services are taken in cash or by a bank card in a currency other than Sterling.

The new Home Office Exchange Rate Policy will provide a fairer and more transparent service to customers and will allow them to calculate in advance the cost of their visa application. The exchange rates will be reviewed on a fortnightly basis.

This change will come into effect on 2 October 2017.

Full details of the Home Office Exchange Rate Policy is available at www.gov.uk/government/publications/exchange-rate-policy
