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.

Please note: there is a charge of £107 for this service. From 1 April 2019 the fee will increase to £125.

Inspections will be carried out within five 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, please visit our Pay an immigration inspection fee page.
