This fees will apply from 6th April 2011 but depending on parliaments approved.
Even UK Boarder Agency stated
The UK Border Agency believe the proposals to increase fees continue to strike the right balance between maintaining secure and effective border controls and ensuring that the fees structure does not inhibit the UK’s ability to attract those migrants and visitors that make a valued contribution. This will help to support the immigration system, maintain public confidence and ensure that migration is managed for the benefit of the UK.
So, its very signification to check application fees before any application.
