UK healthcare payments

Visa is only one part of the whole process of relocation to the UK — in the country, it’s also an obligatory healthcare payment.

For applying for a visa there are three fees — government, professional and hidden fees. The medical cost is related to the first category, but It’s not a fixed one and depends on Visa duration and some other conditions.

In the UK it’s a government calculator, but sometimes it’s not easy to use and understand. For this reason, we will try to make another version on VISXA. With the help of this calculator, you can be able to know how much exactly you will pay depending on your visa and length of stay.

One of the complex things that make immigrants just trying to figure out how much they will pay, that in the UK you have to pay the healthcare fee before applying for a visa.

If you apply for five years you have to make sure that you are satisfied with the 5 years. And then you have to multiply this number if you apply with your partner or a family and double this price (depending on how many people are joining with your visa).

At the same time, you have protection. If your visa is denied or rejected, this health fee will be totally refunded to you.
