Immigration inspections

Officers can arrange to visit your home and will check to see that the property meets the current minimum housing standards and will not be overcrowded. A written report confirming these facts can then be provided.

From 1 April 2023, the fee is £140.

Inspections will be carried out within 5 working days of receipt of both the application form and the payment. The report will then be sent to you as soon as possible after the visit.

To make a payment, visit our Pay an immigration inspection fee page.
