Call for evidence: Home Office service charges

The Independent Chief Inspector of Borders is asking for input on the rationale and authority for the Home Office’s service charges on asylum, immigration, nationality and customs functions.

The Chief Inspector is calling for stakeholders’ evidence on these services, especially those with first-hand knowledge or experience on Home Office charging for services. 

The inspection will look into the efficiency and efficacy of the mentioned services. Interesting to note is that the inspection will also look into whether there is sufficient means of redress where individuals are dissatisfied with the service they have received. 

This will be an opportunity for organisations working on asylum and immigration issues to voice opinions on fees that have drawn increasing criticism. Check this government link to submit evidence.

The deadline for submission is 16 July, 2018.
