Visa Fees Waived for Non-UK Service Personnel

  • News

I welcome the UK Government’s announcement that Visa fees will be waived for non- UK service personnel who meet the criteria, including Gurkha veterans.

The fee will no longer apply to:

  • Currently serving non-UK personnel who will have served at least six years at their point of departure from service.
  • Currently or former serving non-UK personnel who are discharged on medical grounds with a condition attributable to service, regardless of length of service.
  • Former Service Personnel who served for at least six years, are living in the UK and have not yet regularised their immigration status.

Having recently raised the issue of needing to support Gurkha veterans who meet the criteria to resettle in the UK in Parliament, I am pleased to see the UK Government offering the support to our veterans who meet the criteria.

I am very proud to have a high proportion of Gurkha veterans living in Bridgend and I am grateful for their service to protect our country.
