https://www.gov.uk/government/news/customer-enquiry-service-changes

The main changes for customers applying from outside the UK are:

  • all phone numbers and opening hours will change
  • the number of languages offered is reducing to 8 including English
  • customers who contact UK Visas and Immigration by email will be charged £5.48

I might start charging a fiver for every email I send at work from now on.

Hold on, they’ve privatised visas, (and by proxy, immigration??) wtf corbyn get on this NOW

One of my friends is married to an american. They’ve been married for three years now, and only recently managed to get a visa to live together legally over here after being sent through endless Kafkaesque bureacratic trials and demands for this fee here, that surprise new fee there.

It’s absolutely insane. My wife and I are in the same boat and have just applied for the visa. Probably looking at a good £2.5k at least to be able to live together legally here for a whole 3 years. Then we’ll have to do it all again.

I might start charging for every like I generate.
