UK visa fees

Payment of the UK visa fees.

South Africans can only pay for their UK visas directly on the visa4uk website. The British government does not accept any other form of payment. Therefore EFT, cash deposit or moneygram are not acceptable means of paying for UK visas.

Move Up has put this website together to help South Africans find out more about How To Apply for UK visas.

What are the UK visa fees for?

The UK government charges administration fees for each visa and these fees are quoted in Pounds Sterling (GBP). These visa fees fluctuate on a monthly basis in South Africa.

Currently the consulate rate of exchange is GBP1.00 = ZAR20.00 (last edited June 2015).
