2017-19 Session
That this House recognises the enormous contribution made by thousands of Foreign and Commonwealth members of the UK’s Armed Forces; notes that those who have served for at least four years are eligible to apply for indefinite leave to enter or remain in the UK for themselves, their partners and their children; further notes that the fee for such applications has more than doubled in the last four years to £2,389 per person; believes that Armed Forces personnel should not be prevented from settling in the UK or forced into debt by these exorbitant fees; and calls on the Government to waive immigration application fees for members of the Armed Forces and their families.
